"We are committed to making a positive impact in the home furnishings industry and the High Point community, and this is a great opportunity for us to give back," said Robert Maricich, CEO of IMC. "We applaud the High Point Market for spearheading this compassionate outreach for six worthwhile organizations, and we are pleased to contribute to each one, along with the many exhibitors and attendees who are expected to participate."
The Market will spotlight the charities on their respective days with signage, lapel pins, social media (Twitter hashtag #hpmkt6causes) and press alerts to increase awareness and encourage exhibitors and attendees to make donations.
