International Market Centers has announced that the fourth annual gala charity event benefiting Gift For Life, the sole charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home décor industries, will occur on Monday, July 28, during the Summer Las Vegas Market. IMC’s Las Vegas Market organization hosts the Up on 10 fundraising event.
The Summer Las Vegas Market runs from Sunday, July 27, to Thursday, July 31.
As of this summer, the ‘Up on 10’ fundraiser will take place on the 10th floor of Building C, space 1052, Las Vegas World Market Center, to make it more accessible to the growing numbers of gift, home décor and lifestyle resources concentrated in Building C, IMC noted.
The silent auction, dubbed the “Las Vegas experience,” at this year’s Up on 10 event will feature a variety of Vegas-themed items the can be redeemed during the Winter 2015 Market, according to IMC. Items up for bid will include hotel stays, restaurant vouchers, VIP services at top nightclubs, a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, tickets on the High Roller, the new Las Vegas observation wheel, horseback riding or rock climbing lessons in Red Rock Canyon and spa packages, IMC related.
“Las Vegas Market’s Up on 10 reception puts the fun in fundraising, with 100% of proceeds from this special event benefiting Gift For Life,” Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, IMC, said in announcing the scheduling. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market takes its commitment to the industry very seriously, and we hope and expect that this year’s benefit will exceed the nearly $15,000 raised through last year’s event.”
