LAS VEGAS–Las Vegas Market will host the fourth annual gala charity event benefiting Gift For Life, the sole charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home decor industries, on Monday, July 28, during the Summer 2014 Las Vegas Market.
Beginning this summer, the “Up on 10” fundraiser will be held on the 10th floor of Building C, space 1052, making it more accessible to the growing numbers of gift, home decor and lifestyle resources concentrated in Building C.
“Las Vegas Market’s ‘Up on 10’ reception puts the ‘fun’ in fundraising, with 100 percent of proceeds from this special event benefitting Gift For Life,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Decor, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market takes its commitment to the industry very seriously, and we hope and expect that this year’s benefit will exceed the nearly $15,000 raised through last year’s event.”
This year’s “Las Vegas experience” silent auction will feature a variety of Vegas-themed items that can be redeemed during the Winter 2015 Market. Items will include hotel stays; restaurant vouchers; VIP services at top nightclubs; a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon; tickets on the High Roller, the new Las Vegas observation wheel; horseback riding or rock climbing lessons in Red Rock Canyon; spa packages and many more.
Tickets for the benefit cost $25; and may be purchased online at www.giftforlife.org/events, or at specially-designated kiosks onsite during Las Vegas Market.
The Summer 2014 Las Vegas Market is scheduled for Sunday, July 27, to Thursday, July 31.
