YoPros industry group seeks donations for scholarship auction

Retail Editor 8, Staff Staff, August 9, 2010

New York - YoPros (Young Professionals of the Home Fashion Products Association) are organizing the association's third annual HFPA Foundation online auction with Charitybuzz.com to raise money for scholarships.


YoPros are asking industry companies to donate a "one of a kind" experience to the auction, which will take place during market week. Charitybuzz will feature the donor's text, logos, photos and web links for the donation. Donations will be promoted ahead of market week with email blasts to members of the home fashions industry as well as Charitybuzz's more than 50,000 bidders.


Suggested donations include brief internships with the company firm, a meet & greet or meal with a company's celebrity designer, golf with the company ceo, a behind-the-scenes showroom tour, seats to sporting events from season tickets, boutique gift certificates, restaurant certificates and theater tickets, among others.


For information, contact Cheryl Thompson at 203-226-8306 or cthompson@charitybuzz.com. She is also available to brainstorm for other donation ideas.
