WithIt marks 20 years with celebration at October market
September 22, 2017,
WithIt members and guests will celebrate in the Roaring '20s theme.
Market goers are invited to attend. Tickets can be purchased at www.withit.org. Member price is $50 and other guests $75.
“All year we’ve enjoyed commemorating the 20th anniversary of WithIt, and we’ll continue that celebration Oct. 13 as we recognize the sponsors and corporate members who have partnered with us throughout our journey,” said WithIt President Dorian Sims.
Silver sponsors for the evening are Cory, AmericasMart, International Market Centers and MicroD. The event sponsors are Flexsteel, Widget Home, Black Dog Salvage and FurnitureDealer.net. Truck Skins, Home Furnishings Business and Balanced Vintage are in-kind sponsors.
The event will include silent auction of manufactured items, artisan designs and fresh baked goods. Most items are cash and carry. Attendees can visit the Walk of Fame area that will honor 20 years of WOW award recipients, both women and men who have been recognized for their education, leadership and mentoring efforts within the industry.
WithIt began in 1997 when a small group of women – Kimberly Wray, Jena Hall and Peggy Traub – came together to form an association that supports women in their professional roles in the home furnishings industry. Twenty years later, the organization boasts members in the U.S., Canada and select countries around the world, scholarship and mentoring programs and an annual education conference.
