Gift for Life celebrates in New York with Party for Life
Mixing and Mingling
The industry mixed and mingled on Monday night to benefit DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. More than $202,000 was raised through sponsorships, ticket sales and silent auction bidding. If you missed it, you missed out!
Chuck Yancy Lifetime Achievement Award
Vera Bradley’s Barbara Bradley Baekgaard accepted the “Chuck Yancy Lifetime Achievement Award.” She plans to display her crystal award next to one given to her late husband, Peer, in 2007. Thanks to Fieldstone Marketing for donating ApothePure’s new “Peer / Barbara” candles for party-goers.
The Silent Auction featured exclusive travel packages and exciting gift and home décor products from top industry suppliers and more. After-party “Buy Now” bidding is still available on select items! Congrats to Jasmine Ramirez who won the “Great Island Inn Get-Away” raffle prize!
