ROSEMONT, Ill.-For the second year in a row, the Housewares Charity Foundation raised more than $2.2 million at its annual gala, held during the International Home + Housewares Show.
According to a statement from the International Housewares Association, proceeds from the event, benefited the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, HCF's legacy charity. Since the first gala was held in 1998, HCF has raised more than $19 million and has contributed more than $9 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This year, HCF contributed a portion of the proceeds to its Haiti Relief Fund, established to assist the areas of the country that were hardest hit by the earthquake in January.
