Casual Market Chicago, theMART support hurricane victims
September 12, 2017,
After the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the Casual Market Chicago and the Merchandise Mart (theMART) have announced a donation-matching program benefiting the American Red Cross.
“Witnessing the destruction of homes and businesses in our country has been truly heartbreaking,” said Beth Hicks, managing director of marketing for the Design Center at theMART and Casual Market Chicago. “The casual furnishings industry is deeply rooted in the Southeastern and Southwestern states that have been affected, and we feel it is important for us to come together to support victims of the disaster.”
Casual Market Chicago organizers are kicking off the digital fundraising campaign this week to coincide with the annual trade show.
