“Las Vegas Market’s ‘Up on 10’ reception puts the “fun” in fundraising, with 100% of proceeds from this special event benefitting Gift For Life,” stated Dorothy Belshaw, president of Gift & Home Décor, International Market Centers. “As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market takes its commitment to the industry very seriously, and we hope and expect that this year’s benefit will exceed the nearly $15,000 raised through last year’s event.”

Items will include hotel stays; restaurant vouchers; VIP services at top nightclubs; a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon; tickets on the High Roller, the new Las Vegas observation wheel; horseback riding or rock climbing lessons in Red Rock Canyon; spa packages and many more.
