LOS ANGELES, Calif.-Designer and furniture consultant Richard Frinier and his wife and partner Catherine Frinier are donating $10,000 to the City of Hope.

"We are honored to support the City of Hope again this year and do so in the names of our business partners and colleagues at Brown Jordan, Century Furniture, Dedon and Glen Raven/Sunbrella. It is important for us to help raise the level of awareness about the City of Hope and how the good and great things they are working on every day serve to establish groundbreaking discoveries, as well as their participation in setting the national guidelines in so many areas of health and wellness," said Catherine Frinier, principal and managing partner of FrinierAtelier.

The donation was made in support of the Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Building, which houses the Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases overseeing clinical research programs and patient care.

Richard Frinier is a 30-year veteran of the home furnishings industry and the recipient of more than 70 product design excellence and career achievement awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Casual Furnishings Association.
