• BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT:
The Challenged Athletes Foundation will hold its annual Triathlon Challenge Sunday, Oct. 19, 2014 at La Jolla Cove. One of the many teams supporting the cause is local remodeling firm Jackson Design and Remodeling (JDR). The CAF event is one of 25 charitable acts JDR will participate in this year to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
When CEO Todd Jackson asked his team how they wanted to honor their milestone anniversary, the staff unanimously agreed that they wanted to thank San Diego for its support throughout the years by giving back. In addition to serving as a way to commemorate the company’s 25 years in business, CEO Todd Jackson says the experience of contributing to the community together has been a tremendous experience for his team.
“It is so inspiring to see our team work together to help others here in San Diego,” said Jackson. “We are proud to be a part of this community and are grateful we get the opportunity to say thank you. It’s been such a rewarding experience and we’ve all become closer as a team as a result of getting out there and putting our heads and hands to work to support these incredible organizations.”
This isn’t the company’s first charitable activity in La Jolla; this summer JDR team members donned gloves and trash bags to support the Surfrider Foundation’s beach cleanup at La Jolla Shores. The company also supported the Luau & Legends of Surfing Invitational, the annual event held at Scripps Pier that benefits the Moores Cancer Center.
Other ways of giving have included providing materials needed to plant a sustainable vegetable garden at a local preschool, conducting a team blood drive for the San Diego Blood Bank, supporting the Humane Society Walk for Animals and donating prom dresses to teens in need through the Princess Project.
On top of the 25 charitable actions planned for the year, the JDR team will be hard at work in October as the company has two homes featured on the annual American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) San Diego tour on Oct. 25.

In addition to the tour, JDR is offering a free design and remodeling seminar at its Kearny Mesa showroom Oct. 18. The seminar is an opportunity for homeowners considering a remodel to meet the experts and learn the “do’s” and “don’ts.” To RSVP, visit jacksondesignandremodeling.com
