SEATTLE-Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries' sole charitable organization, will be the beneficiary of the first annual Tabletop by Design, a celebration of all things tabletop and home entertaining organized by the Pacific Market Center.

The program was initiated by the Pacific Market Center as a special event complementing its Summer Gift and Home Accessories Show, which started on Aug. 18, running through Aug. 24.
