Atlanta Market’s Party on Peachtree to Benefit Gift for Life and Young Gift Executives
Posted on December 17, 2015 by
ATLANTA—The industry is invited to support Gift For Life and Young Gift Executives next month at the annual Party on Peachtree during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m., the event will include a cocktail buffet dinner and live performances by The Helpers—all choreographed by Emmy-nominated emcee Tom Sullivan.
The event is steps away from AmericasMart, taking place at the landmark Davison’s/Macy’s building at 200 Peachtree. Proceeds from the event will continue Gift For Life’s work in the fight against AIDS and Young Gift Executives’ support of domestic violence survivors.
Following a highly attended Party on Peachtree event this past January, the 2016 event is expected to exceed previous participation. It’s sponsored by Poo-Pourri, Giftcraft, Appelman Schauben and the Gift & Home Trade Association, and it is hosted by AmericasMart Atlanta. Tickets are $75 each and are on sale at partyonpeachtree.splashthat.com/.
In addition, Gift for Life raised almost $8,000 at its holiday pop-up shop, which was created by the Retail Design Institute New York Chapter (RDI). Nearly 40 gift and home industry suppliers and designers donated products for sale in the shop, Dec. 2-6 in New York City. The store concept was created by students from the Fashion Institute of Technology and LIM College as part of an annual “Iron Design” Student Challenge hosted by RDI. The winning design, selected for its incorporation of DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, was installed in the Stockman-Siegel showroom.
