High Point, N.C. - WithIt will present its Legacy Award to Susan Gravely, founder and chief executive of lifestyle brand Vietri, at the 2014 WOW Awards dinner and ceremony, set for the opening night of the Las Vegas Market.
WithIt, the women's leadership development network serving the home furnishings industry, will present the awards on Sunday, Jan. 26, in the World Market Center's World View on 16. WMC owner International Market Centers is once again the lead sponsor of the event, with additional sponsorship support from Restonic Mattress.
The annual awards recognize business leaders nominated by their peers who have contributed to the success of the home furnishings industries.
Gravely is being honored as a woman of achievement who has made significant lifetime contributions to the industry.

Vietri is now America's largest Italian ceramics importing company, according to WithIt.
