WithIt recently announced its upcoming 25th Anniversary Event – “A Silver Soiree”, to be held April 2 from 6-9pm, at the newly opened event space, Congdon Yards during Spring High Point Market.
“We invite the home furnishings industry to join us for this special celebratory evening in honor of our 25th Anniversary!” says Renee Loper-Boyd, Vice President of IMC and 2022 WithIt President. “The event committee has designed a wonderful evening of networking and fun for Saturday evening at High Point Market. Adding to the excitement will be a silent auction to raise funds for WithIt’s educational programs. We look forward to seeing you there!”
Tickets for WithIt’s 25th Anniversary Event are on sale now for $40 for members and $50 for non-members. Production and the planning for this event, led by an exceptionally vibrant committee of 25 WithIt members, worked to develop a celebration event filled with fun, dancing and delicious catering. The band “Radio Revolver,” led by former Lazar president Rob Luce, will entertain guests with a mix of rock n’ roll and pop music. The celebration will also include a silent auction filled with exciting products from leading home furnishings brands and local businesses.
Aviva Stanoff, Aviva Stanoff Design, décor committee chair commented, “25 years is a moment to pause, celebrate and honor. From its beginning, soaring and shining bright together was our goal. How fitting to be able celebrate all our stars aligning! I was inspired by the connectivity of the WithIt network. Every connection we forge together is a Sparkletunity, and that is what I wanted to celebrate with the events décor – creating “A Silver Soiree.”
The silent auction will be virtually launched one week prior to the event so that bidders don’t have to be onsite. A celebratory toast will occur at 6:30pm. The auction begins 6:00pm until 8:15pm and all auction item winners will be awarded during the event. Submissions for auction donation items can be made online via WithIt’s Auction donation form.
