IMC sponsors Gift for Life raffles at Atlanta Market and Las Vegas Market
International Market Centers (IMC) announced its sponsorship of Gift for Life’s “Feed the Hungry – Feel the Good” fundraiser for World Central Kitchen’s COVID-related hunger relief efforts with a commitment to match donations up to $10,000 from participants in its Atlanta Market (July 13-19) and Las Vegas Market (Aug. 22-26).
While in-person social events are still paused, IMC will shift its support from at-market fundraising events – such as Gift for Life’s Party for Life held at Atlanta Market in winter 2020 and the summer Las Vegas Market’s long-standing “Up on the Roof” fundraiser – and instead mark its 10th anniversary by sponsoring a Gift for Life raffle benefiting World Central Kitchen’s Restaurants for the People program.
“IMC has long been a supporter of Gift for Life and its humanitarian efforts,” said Bob Maricich, CEO for IMC. “Although our typical fundraising events are paused this year, we still are committed to supporting the gift and home industry’s primary charity. We are proud to support Gift for Life’s work with World Central Kitchen, which has directly benefited many individuals and businesses in Atlanta and Las Vegas as well as the surrounding areas.”
Through Gift for Life’s “Feed the Hungry – Feel the Good” campaign, participants can qualify to win raffle prizes including Atlanta Market and Las Vegas Market hotel stays and dining certificates. Donors of at least $50 are eligible for the raffle drawings and IMC has pledged to match donations up to $10,000 for each summer 2021 market.
The Atlanta Market raffle features nine unique prizes secured by IMC: five two-night hotel stays redeemable during the January 2022 Atlanta Market and another four hotel packages redeemable at any time, based on hotel availability.
