Gift for Life benefit to be held ‘Up on the Roof'
June 29, 2013-- Home Accents Today,
International market Centers will host the third annual "Up on the Roof" gala charity to benefit Gift For Life on July 30 at the World Market Center during the summer Las Vegas Market.
Gift For Life is the sole charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home décor industries.
"Las Vegas Market is delighted once again to partner with Gift For Life, helping raise awareness and funds for prevention and treatment of AIDS," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. "As the leading gift and home décor destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market is proud and happy to continue its support for this worthy cause, and hope that this year's event will exceed the nearly $15,000 raised through last year's ‘Up on the Roof' party."
The "Up on the Roof" party will marry fun with fundraising, all set against the backdrop of the Las Vegas skyline. From 6 to 8 p.m. in World View on the 16th floor of World Market Center's Building B, party-goers will enjoy cocktails, appetizers, live music and a silent auction, and all funds raised will benefit Gift for Life.
This year's silent auction will feature a new format, in which guests place raffle tickets in jars for the auction items they would like to purchase. All guests will receive one raffle ticket with their ticket purchase and can buy additional raffle tickets at the auction.
"We are truly grateful for the continuing generosity of the Las Vegas Market," said Stu Teller, chair of the Gift For Life board. "This very special reception is helping our organization educate the public and make a substantive difference in the lives of people impacted by AIDS."
Tickets to "Up on the Roof" are $25 each or five for $100. Tickets can be purchased at http://upontheroofgala.eventbrite. com, and on-site in the lobbies of Building A and Building C.
The summer Las Vegas Market will be held from July 29- Aug. 2.
