HIGH POINT, N.C.–The High Point Market is sponsoring Six Causes That Matter, a complement to the Market’s tagline, “The Next Six Days That Matter.” Each day of Market, which runs Oct. 22-27, a charity will be spotlighted at the show, offering an opportunity for exhibitors and attendees to make a donation to that day’s charity. Promotion of the charities will include signage, lapel pins, social media, press alerts and more. Exhibitors who participate will receive showroom signs to highlight their participation in that day’s cause during Market.
The Six Causes That Matter this October will include:
Oct. 22 – City of Hope, in honor of Lynn Davis
Oct. 23 – Susan G. Komen
Oct. 24 – Habitat for Humanity
Oct. 25 – American Red Cross
Oct. 26 – National Furniture Bank
Oct. 27 – Open Door Ministries
Companies interested in participating can go to www.highpointmarket.org/causes to register. More information is also available there about each of the charities. These Six Causes were chosen because of their strong ties to the home furnishings industry, but the High Point Market Authority plans to continue the Six Causes campaign throughout the year and will offer other charities the opportunity to be involved.
