Gift for Life's New York Experience Scheduled for Jan. 30, 2011

NEW YORK-Gift for Life's New York Experience will be held on Sunday, January 30, 2011, during the New York International Gift Fair. A national fundraising event as well as the charitable organization's 19th anniversary party, the event will be held at the Central Park Boathouse here from 6:30 to 10 p.m. All proceeds will benefit DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS.

The New York Experience will feature food and drink, a silent auction, and a short program honoring industry leaders. Recipients of three 2011 Gift For Life Awards--the Design for Life Award, the Bert Tonkin Gift of Giving Award, and the Trailblazer Award--will be announced in mid-August.

"Only in New York can we bring together the entire industry to have fun, honor our innovative leaders, and raise money for a terrific cause," said Jenny Hammons, chairperson of the Gift for Life board. "The Gift For Life Anniversary event offers a chance to entertain guests and network with industry associates."

Individual tickets will be sold for the event, and sponsorships from $500 through $25,000 also will be available. For details, contact Steven Williams at swilliams@diffa.org or 212-727-3100.
