The “Home vs. Hunger” event at High Point Market raised $17,700 for World Central Kitchen’s crisis-related hunger relief programs, according to Gift for Life, in partnership with home manufacturers and market-makers.
“We can’t begin to express our gratitude to Gift for Life’s Home vs. Hunger team,” said Cole Daugherty, chair of Gift for Life. “They did an extraordinary job of organizing, partnering and delivering a first-ever event at High Point Market. Gift for Life’s home market debut event was well-attended by top home brands, influential media and design community movers and shakers.”
Held Oct. 21 in the Eichholtz showroom in the heart of downtown High Point, the event raised its total with donations from Eichholtz and Loloi as well as many individual contributions from the home industry and design community.
