Las Vegas Market Benefit Raises the Roof for Gift for Life

LAS VEGAS-Las Vegas Market's "Up on the Roof" charity cocktail event for Gift for Life during the summer show earlier this month sold 500 tickets, and raised more than $12,000 for the Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA).

The supportive turnout of industry leaders and gift attendees enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, live music and prizes. Among the guests were designers Roger Thomas and HGTV's Monica Pedersen. Prizes included raffle items such as a Peter Lik photo, autographed Bill Clinton books, and show tickets.

"DIFFA is thrilled that the Las Vegas Market's first event on behalf of Gift for Life raised more than $12,000 for persons living with HIV/AIDS and we look forward to our next endeavor together," said Steven Williams, director of community relations for DIFFA. "Now more than ever such support is critical to the future of the organizations DIFFA helps to fund."
