Global Views, Whereoware to Receive Awards at Party for Life

NEW YORK-Gift for Life announced today that Global Views and Whereoware will be honored during the charity organization's annual Party for Life, taking place Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, in New York City.

Global Views will receive Gift For Life's "Design for Life Award," which recognizes excellence in product design and sustained impact on the gift and home decor industries. Global Views offers a wide assortment of fashion forward products from furniture to accessories that fit every price range.

"We are humbled by this award and accept it on behalf of all of our hardworking team members," said David Gebhart, Global Views CEO and co-founder. "While our core mission is creating elegant decor, we also strive to make a difference in the lives of our community. Gift for Life is a strong leader and partner for this effort."

Whereoware will receive Gift for Life's "Trailblazer Award," which recognizes an industry pioneer for outstanding achievement and significant contributions, as well as for creative products and ideas with lasting impact. For more than 13 years, leading gift, home and lighting companies have entrusted Whereoware with building and managing their websites and online marketing programs.

"In many ways our company is merely a reflection of this generous and creative industry," said Eric Dean, president of Whereoware. "So, it's an honor to accept this award in the spirit of the inspiration we receive from clients and from organizations such as Gift for Life."

Gift for Life's 21st Annual Party for Life, benefiting DIFFA, will be held at The Boathouse at Central Park. Individual tickets are $125, and sponsorships ranging from $500 through $25,000 are available. For details, contact Steven Williams at swilliams@diffa.org, (212) 727-3100.
