KBE Announces $1,000 Website Contest

FARMINGTON, Conn., and COLUMBIA, Md., Nov.21, 2012 — “If you build it, they will come,” may not always play out in our world of information overload, so KBE Building Corporation is taking an extra step to encourage people to view the company’s new website.

KBE Building Corporation has announced its “Thousand Bucks” contest to bring attention to the firm and its new website. Each contestant who correctly answers questions about the company will be entered to win one $50 gift card or a $1,000 donation to their favorite children’s charity or non-profit organization.  

Contestants can enter the contest at the firm’s website at https://kbebuilding.com/contest. The questions are not challenging, but do require a quick review of the website. Four questions relating to KBE’s name, clientele, past awards, and core values each have a prize of a $50 gift card. The final question, about KBE’s award-winning charitable initiative 50 Ways to Make a Difference, yields a $1,000 cash contribution to the winner’s favorite, recognized children’s charity. The contest will end on December 14, 2012, and the winners will be announced on December 19, 2012.  

“We’re closing in on the fifth anniversary of when Eric Brown, Simon Etzel, and I acquired the company,” said Mike Kolakowski, KBE’s President and CEO. “It was time not only for a new website that more accurately represents who we are and why we’re so different, but we also wanted to bring attention to our 50 Ways to Make a Difference philanthropic program, which is an enormous source of pride for us and all of the employees.”
