While in town for NYIGF, Giftware News got the opportunity to attend Party for Life, the annual fundraising event for Gift for Life, one of the gift industry's leading charitable organizations. Set in the stunning Boathouse in Central Park, guests mingled among cocktails and plenty of food while bidding on silent and live auction items. The evening culminated with an awards presentation: Kathy Ireland received the Design for Life Award, David Moses received the Bert Tonkin Gift of Giving Award and Mud Pie CEO Marcia Miller received the Trailblazer Award.
Altogether, the event raise more than $150,000 on behalf of DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. On behalf of Giftware News, congratulations!
