Danny Andreasen, one of PV’s top patrons for 2017, was chosen for all of his hard work and generous donations to PV over the years.  Danny came to Chico when he was 10 and is a PV alumnus.  He studied business in college and is now a licensed General Contractor in both California and Nevada.  Danny is the President and CEO of what is now known as Cleanrite-Buildrite (CRBR), which specializes in rug and upholstery cleaning, wind, water and fire restoration and construction.

His father, Verne, started the business in Chico in 1959 and it has since grown, servicing Northern California and Reno, NV and surrounding areas, employing over 125 employees.  Danny took over as President when his father retired in 1991.
