May 1, 2012,
NEW YORK-Gift for Life, the charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home decor industries, has partnered with the National Stationery Show to participate in AIDS Walk New York, a charity fundraiser in New York City's Central Park that will take place on Sunday, May 20, the opening day of the show. The Gift For Life/National Stationery Show team is recruiting walkers to join it on the 10-kilometer walk through the park. At the conclusion of the official route, the Gift For Life/National Stationery Show team will then continue its walk and head to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, where the National Stationery Show runs through Wednesday, May 23.
"The National Stationery Show is delighted to partner with Gift For Life to support AIDS Walk New York," said Patti Stracher, general manager of the National Stationery Show. "The event's overlap with the National Stationery Show's opening day offers members of the social stationery industry a unique opportunity to support this important cause -- whether as walkers along the course or as donors from the exhibit floor."
