Osmond also will live auction a selection of Donny Osmond Home licensed merchandise from three Las Vegas Market showrooms — Art Trends, Coaster Company of America and Rizzy Home — and other licensees.

Up on the Roof tickets, which cost $25 each or five for $100, may be purchased at upontheroof.splashthat.com and at designated kiosks on site in the Grand Plaza, C10 and in the Pavilions during Las Vegas Market, which will take place July 30-Aug. 3.
