CRATE AND BARREL HOSTS A SPECIAL SHOPPING EVENT TO BENEFIT BODE MILLER’S TURTLE RIDGE FOUNDATION Proceeds from the Boston Store’s Cocktail Party and Shopping Event Will Directly Benefit World Cup Skiing Champion Bode Miller’s Foundation BOSTON, Mass. – November 14, 2007 – Bode Miller’s Turtle Ridge Foundation (www.turtleridgefoundation.org), established by two-time Olympic medalist and World Cup Champion Bode Miller and his family, and Crate and Barrel (www.crateandbarrel.com), one of the largest home furnishing retailers in the country, present an evening of shopping at Crate and Barrel’s Boston store. The event, scheduled for December 5th, 2007 at 777 Boylston Street, will donate a percentage of the proceeds raised from the evening sales to benefit the Turtle Ridge Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and creating programs that solve difficult environmental, health and economic issues. TRF has supported several organizations in the past, including The Michael J. Fox Foundation, Adaptive Sports Programs and programs that help Americans stricken with cancer. TRF also supports Boys & Girls Clubs and other community programs benefitting underprivileged children. “The Turtle Ridge Foundation has supported many wonderful organizations, both in New England and nationally,” said HEAD USA Marketing Director Mike Bisner. “As a Sponsor of Bode Miller, we can see first-hand the immediate impact of the Turtle Ridge Foundation, most recently exemplified by a generous donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, an organization committed to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. The event with Crate and Barrel on December 5th will be a great way to involve the community in supporting the Turtle Ridge Foundation while kick-starting the holiday season in Boston.” "Crate and Barrel is excited to host an event to benefit Bode Miller's foundation,” said Bette Kahn of Crate & Barrel. “We're impressed with the vast number of people Miller's foundation has been able to help and the number of programs it’s been able to implement in such a short period of time. We look forward to continuing our relationship with TRF and partnering with Bode to raise awareness and respond to issues affecting so many communities.” Guests at the Bode Miller Crate and Barrel shopping event will enjoy wine, appetizers and dessert and access to the store’s three floors of home furnishings, decoration and kitchenware. To further support the Turtle Ridge Foundation, guests are asked to make a $20 dollar donation, which

admits entrance for one and provides a $10 Crate and Barrel gift card. In addition, with the donation, guests will receive one ticket to be entered in a raffle to win a $500 gift certificate from Crate and Barrel and $500 and $250 gift certificates courtesy of HEAD USA. Crate & Barrel will donate ten percent of all purchases made at the event to the Turtle Ridge Foundation.

About Crate and Barrel Crate and Barrel (www.crateandbarrel.com) was born from an idea that newlyweds Gordon and Carole Segal had while washing and drying their dishes in the early 60's -- "there must be other young couples like themselves with more taste than money." They decided to open a store, and running out of money for fixtures, turned over the crates and barrels that their newly imported merchandise was shipped in -- and thus was born a retail phenomenon. Now, 45 years and over 150 stores later, Crate and Barrel has set the standards for value, design, and customer service. Gordon Segal, still CEO of this brand and CB2, has made his mission "people, products and presentation." About the Turtle Ridge Foundation The Turtle Ridge Foundation (www.turtleridgefoundation.org) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and creating programs that solve difficult environmental, health and economic issues, including adaptive sports programs, cancer research and survivor programs and The Boys and Girls Club of America, New Hampshire. ###
