RoofersCoffeeShop® is proud to share breaking news from SRS on their 2021 IRE Concert event. In a Roofing Road Trips with Heidi podcast, Dan Tinker, CEO of SRS shared, “We are very excited to announce that we just signed Darius Rucker and Little Big Town to play at our IRE Concert Fundraiser on April 15, 2021 at the Mandalay Bay House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV.”
The even bigger news is that SRS is stepping forward with their Raise the Roof Foundation and will split the proceeds from their IRE Fundraising events with National Women in Roofing (NWIR) and the Roofing Alliance to promote diversity, inclusion and respect in roofing.
“With everything that has happened this year in our nation, we believe we need to do our part to promote equality, diversity and inclusion,” stated Tinker during the RCS podcast. “We need to build diversity in roofing. It is good for our workforce, professionalism and the overall culture of the industry.”
The musicians will also play a part in talking about diversity and sharing stories from the stage that will support the importance of inclusion. “As we considered what to do during COVID and the racial tensions in our nation, we knew we had to move forward and do something big to bring our industry together. This is going to be an amazing event and all money raised goes directly to NWIR, Roofing Alliance and the SRS Raise the Roof Foundation,” concluded Tinker.
SRS continues to be dedicated to improving industry diversity, inclusion and respect. Be sure to watch for ticket information at ire.srsdistribution.com. For the full interview listen to Roofing Road Trips with Heidi and Dan Tinker here.
About Raise the Roof
SRS Distribution Inc. has long believed that we grow not only by investing in our business but also in our people and our communities. Because of this philosophy, in 2012 the management team of SRS Distribution formed the SRS Raise the Roof Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is easily stated in three words “AND GIVE BACK.”
SRS Distribution and our Raise the Roof Foundation truly believe the best way to give back to our communities is to draw upon our company’s unique business culture: linking the skills and passions of our employees with philanthropic dollars. As a result, SRS Raise the Roof Foundation has become a champion of causes and organizations that support veterans and their families as well as those that address disaster relief and other local community needs.
