Home vs. Hunger fundraising event returns to High Point Market

Gift for Life’s Home vs. Hunger team today announced that its “Party with a Purpose” fundraising event returns to the Spring 2024 High Point Market on Sunday, April 14, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Eichholtz Showroom, 129 South Hamilton Street.

Gift for Life Home vs. HungerIn partnership with home industry leaders and market makers, Gift for Life debuted its Home vs Hunger initiative at High Point Market in October 2022. To date, through the generosity of the home industry, nearly $60,000 has been raised for WCK at in-person events at the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 High Point Markets and through online campaigns in February 2023 following devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria and in August 2023 following destructive wildfires in Maui.

“We look forward to another ‘Party with a Purpose’ fundraising event this April at High Point Market,” said Russ Jones, chair of Gift for Life’s Home vs. Hunger team. “Our industry’s generosity and support has been humbling and we’re excited to see what we can do this year to help make a difference for WCK’s global initiatives.”

To RSVP for the 2024 event, email homevshunger@gmail.com by April 5. For those unable to make it to the event, donations will be accepted through April 30, 2024, at giftforlife.org/donate. All proceeds will benefit World Central Kitchen’s (WCK) crisis-related hunger relief efforts.
