Gift for Life's "Up on the Roof" Event Slated for July 31 in Vegas
July 18, 2012,
LAS VEGAS--Gift+Home at Las Vegas Market presents the second-annual "Up on the Roof" event, a benefit for Gift for Life, the gift and home industries' charity that raises money for Design Industries Foundations Fighting AIDS (DIFFA). "Up on the Roof" is slated to take place on Tues., July 31, from 6-8 p.m., and attendees will be able to enjoy cocktails, appetizers, live music, prizes and a breath-taking view of the Las Vegas skyline.
Last year alone, this inaugural Gift for Life reception raised more than $12,000. Tickets are $20 per person, and are available before the show at diffa.org, and on-site in the lobby of Building C on Mon., July 30 and Tues., July 31.
"While our primary goal is to ensure our attendees leave Las Vegas Market with new connections, sources, and inspiration for their business, it's also equally important that they enjoy themselves and feel a sense of community and camaraderie," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift and Home Decor at International Market Centers, parent company of World Market Center Las Vegas. "Our team has been building out a compelling roster of programming and special events aimed at enhancing the experience for the gift retailer which has resulted in an unparalleled buyer attendance - and experience - for six consecutive markets. Gift for Life's "Up on The Roof" event is a wonderful opportunity to build support for DIFFA on the west coast while networking with fellow colleagues, along with the many other special events we are hosting throughout the week."
