Las Vegas Market to Host Gift for Life Benefit
Posted on May 21, 2013 by
LAS VEGAS-International Market Centers will host the third annual "Up on the Roof" gala charity event benefiting Gift For Life, the sole charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home decor industries, on Tuesday, July 30, during the Summer 2013 Las Vegas Market, running July 29-Aug. 2, at the World Market Center Las Vegas.
"Las Vegas Market is delighted once again to partner with Gift For Life, helping raise awareness and funds for prevention and treatment of AIDS," said Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Decor, International Market Centers. "As the leading gift and home decor destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market is proud and happy to continue its support for this worthy cause, and hope that this year's event will exceed the nearly $15,000 raised through last year's "Up on the Roof" party."
The "Up on the Roof" party will marry fun with fundraising, all set against the backdrop of the Las Vegas skyline. From 6 to 8 p.m. in WorldView on the 16th floor of World Market Center's Building B, party-goers will enjoy cocktails, appetizers, live music and a silent auction, and all funds raised will benefit Gift for Life. This year's silent auction will feature a new Chinese auction format, in which guests place raffle tickets in jars for the auction items they would like to purchase. All guests will receive one raffle ticket with their ticket purchase and can buy additional raffle tickets at the auction.
Tickets to "Up on the Roof" cost $25 each; anyone purchasing four tickets will get a fifth ticket for free. Tickets can be purchased at http://upontheroofgala.eventbrite.com/, and onsite during Las Vegas Market in the lobbies of both Building A and Building C. Additional information will be posted soon at www.lasvegasmarket.com.
