April 29, 2024 Gift for Life's Home vs Hunger team – in partnership with home manufacturers and market-makers – raised more than $21,000 earlier this month during its Party with a Purpose event at spring High Point Market.

Benefitting World Central Kitchen and its crisis-related hunger-relief programs, the event was held in the Eicholtz showroom on April 14.

“Our third edition of Party with a Purpose during High Point Market was a smashing success, with donations and pledges raising more than $21,000 for World Central Kitchen,” said Russ Jones, chair of Gift for Life’s Home vs. Hunger team. “Once again, Eichholtz graciously hosted the event, which drew some 200 market-goers eager to have fun and support a worthy cause.”

Donators at the event include Andmore, Eichholtz, Ivystone, J Douglas, John-Richard and Loloi, as well as individual contributions from some 50 home brands and members of the design community. For those that missed the event during market, donations are still being accepted through April 30, with a goal to raise a total of $30,000 for World Central Kitchen.

In 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, more than $60,000 has been raised for World Central Kitchen’s crisis related hunger relief efforts. Fundraising activities have included in-person events at High Point Market during the fall 2022 and spring 2023 High Point Markets and through online campaigns in February 2023 following earthquakes in Turkey and Syria and in August 2023 following wildfires in Maui.
