Event Marks Vent-A-Hood Anniversary

RICHARDSON, TX — To celebrate the company’s 84th anniversary, Vent-A-Hood recently hosted a special event with a one-of-a-kind celebration following the organization’s National Distributor Meeting.

The all-day event for the firm’s distributors, retailers and suppliers began with a breakfast and special keynote presentation from former First Lady of the U.S. Laura Bush. Bush was introduced to the audience by legendary Dallas philanthropist Ruth Altshuler, a long-time friend to the former First Lady and daughter of Vent-A-Hood founder Carr Collins.

“I know something about family businesses,” Bush said about Vent-A-Hood when she addressed the crowd. “Ours was politics.” She followed with a speech that was both light-hearted and serious as she shared what it was like in that business of politics. And, in addition to her most cherished role today as a grandmother, she shared her new focus with the former President at The George W. Bush Institute that they oversee at The George W. Bush Presidential Library.

With freedom being the overriding focus of the institute’s initiatives and the causes that it supports around the world, Bush included the theme of the free enterprise system – a founding principle for businesses like Vent-A-Hood, whose products are proudly made in America.
