High Point Market to showcase 'Six Causes That Matter'
23
Sep '11
The home furnishings industry is known for its generosity and support of those in need. To reflect that giving spirit, the High Point Market is sponsoring Six Causes That Matter, a complement to the Market's tagline, The Next Six Days That Matter.

Each day of Market, which runs Oct. 22-27, a charity will be spotlighted at the home furnishings trade show, offering an opportunity for exhibitors and attendees to make a donation to that day's charity. Promotion of the charities will include signage, lapel pins, social media (#hpmkt6causes), press alerts, and more. Exhibitors who participate will receive showroom signs to highlight their participation in that day's cause during Market.

“Last year, we saw so many companies who were involved in charitable giving on their own at Market,” says Cheminne Taylor-Smith, VP of Marketing for the High Point Market. “We wanted to organize a larger project that would coordinate and highlight the incredible work done not only by the charities themselves, but also by the companies in the home furnishings industry.”

The Six Causes That Matter this October will include:
Oct. 22 – City of Hope (in memory of Center Point's Lynn Davis)
Oct. 23 – Susan G. Komen
Oct. 24 – Habitat for Humanity
Oct. 25 – American Red Cross
Oct. 26 – National Furniture Bank
Oct. 27 – Open Door Ministries

These Six Causes were chosen because of their strong ties to the home furnishings industry, but the High Point Market Authority plans to continue the Six Causes campaign throughout the year and will offer other charities the opportunity to be involved.

“Of course there are many more causes that matter,” says Taylor-Smith. “Moving forward, we will continue to highlight and celebrate the contributions by so many in this industry, while also showcasing the good works of as many worthy charities as we can.”

The High Point Market Authority, is the official sponsor and organizer of the High Point Market in High Point, N.C. Featuring an extensive selection of exhibitors spanning every category, style, and price point, and attracting tens of thousands of visitors from more than 106 countries twice each year, the High Point Market is the driving force of the home furnishings industry.
