Gift for Life celebrates 30 years

Industry leaders raised a glass to Gift for Life’s 30th anniversary during a GHTA reception on July 14 at Atlanta Market. Since its founding in 1992, the all-volunteer organization has motivated the gift and home industry to donate more than $6 million in connection with at-market events, cause marketing initiatives and direct donations.
