Tabletop by Design to Benefit Gift For Life
June 16, 2010,
SEATTLE-Gift For Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries' sole charitable organization, today announced it will serve as 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 their Summer Gift and Home Accessories Show, taking place August 18-24 here. For the event each participant will showcase inventive tabletop designs on 48-inch or 60-inch round tables. Buyers attending the show will vote on their favorite designs by making donations to Gift For Life, with all proceeds benefiting DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS.
"We are delighted to work with the Pacific Market Center to develop a new Gift For Life activity in Seattle," said Jenny Hammons, chair of the Gift For Life board and president of Jenny Hammons Company. "What a wonderful way to blend design inspiration and industry giving."
Gift For Life presents its annual Industry Achievement Award each August as part of the Gifts & Decorative Accessories Retailer Excellence Awards. In addition, Gift For Life hosts regional events throughout the United States and a national fundraiser each winter during the New York International Gift Fair.
