Las Vegas Market recently announced that its fifth annual Up on the Roof gala raised $10,000 to benefit Gift for Life, the charitable organization for the gift, stationery and home décor industries. Held as part of the Summer Las Vegas Market earlier this month, the fundraiser drew a record 310 participants.
The event took place in the Las Vegas World Market Center WorldView Ballroom, which provides a panoramic view of the Las Vegas skyline.
The gala raised money both through ticket sales and a Las Vegas-themed silent auction that offered a wide variety of experience-oriented items, including a gift certificate to Oscar’s Steakhouse, valued at $150, and a Green Valley Ranch Spa package, valued at $170.
“Las Vegas Market is committed to supporting the gift and home décor industry and to raising awareness and funds for the essential efforts of the industry’s chosen charity,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president of gift and home décor, International Market Centers and a Gift for Life board member. “Over the past five years, Las Vegas Market’s Up on the Roof events have raised more than $50,000 to benefit Gift for Life.”
