GR here, your tour guide to the wonderful world of Hardwicks.
For you socially responsible folks out there: Not only is Hardwick's a recycler of classic tools (and has been since 1932) but they put their hard-earned money where their heart is: In public ervice. They sponsor "Benjamin Franklin - Live! & Inperson-ated" (a first-person Chatauqua event) into schools, libraries, business meetings, etc., and a major portion of all proceeds goes to help non-profits like The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (over $7,000 raised this year). They also are a direct sponsor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training. Look for the jerseys at your local Marathon, Triathlon, and Bicycle Century near you. (to see where Ben Franklin - or his presenter, G.Robin Smith) is presenting or performing next, go through www.goBENgo.info to see.)
That's how Hardwick's RE-Acts to the needs of its community.
Do you need a fundraiser? Consider having Ben Franklin in to your function, sponsored by Hardwick's.
