Donny OsmondLAS VEGAS — Donny Osmond, celebrity entertainer and home products licensor, will serve as an auctioneer at Las Vegas Market’s seventh annual Up on the Roof fundraiser benefiting Gift For Life.

The annual fundraiser, set for July 31, will feature live auction items as well as a variety of Las Vegas-themed silent auction prizes.

“Las Vegas Market is thrilled that Donny Osmond will join us as a special guest and live auctioneer at our annual Gift For Life fundraiser,” Dorothy Belshaw, president of gift leasing and chief marketing officer, International Market Centers, said in a release. “Las Vegas Market is proud to support the industry’s charitable efforts by hosting our annual Up on The Roof fundraiser, which has raised more than $70,000 to date for HIV/AIDS direct care, prevention, education services and advocacy.”

Auction prizes will include two pairs of tickets to the Donny & Marie Show — at his personal table plus a meet-and-greet — at the Flamingo Las Vegas (valued at $750 per pair). Osmond will also auction some signed memorabilia from himself as well as from artist Jon Bon Jovi.

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 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.
