Gift for Life, the gift and home industries’ sole charitable organization, announced that its 26th annual Party for Life raised more than $225,000 for AIDS treatment and prevention. The annual event, which benefits DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, raised record funds at its event in New York City on Monday, February 5.
The Party for Life featured tasty food, multiple bars and a short program followed by live entertainment. In addition to networking, guests also competed for a wide array of silent auction prizes including luxury experiences and unique gift and home décor products donated by 30+ leading suppliers.
