Calistoga Affordable Housing Recipient of dck worldwide’s “Building a Better Community” Award

dck worldwide announced today that Calistoga Affordable Housing (CAH) has won its “Building a Better Community” award. Designed to recognize a civic group or charitable organization that has played a significant role in changing lives in the Napa Valley, the award consists of a $3,000 donation to Calistoga Affordable Housing, which was presented to CAH’s President, Larry Kromann.

dck worldwide launched its Building a Better Community award program in September by soliciting nominations throughout Napa and Sonoma counties. The company received submissions from multiple organizations and according to Stephen D’Angelo, dck worldwide’s CEO and President, all were very deserving.

“It was a difficult decision for our selection committee, as there quite a number of worthy charities that are making significant contributions to communities throughout the Napa Valley.”

Mr. D’Angelo went on to say the company’s employees in its office locations and construction project sites get involved in supporting the communities where they work and play. As the general contractor for the Silver Rose project in Calistoga, dck worldwide looked to recognize an organization that shared in its vison of improving neighborhoods and peoples’ lives in the region.
