HIGH POINT - City of Hope will honor Michael Amini of AICO and the Goldberg family - Neil, Steve and Michael - of Raymour & Flanigan with its 2013 Spirit of Life Awards during next April's High Point Market.
The awards, the most prestigious philanthropic honor presented by the medical research and treatment center, will be given at the Spirit of Life Award dinner April 21 at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C.
In addition to philanthropic achievements, the awards also recognize outstanding business leadership.
Amini, the founder and CEO of case goods and upholstery source AICO, and the Goldbergs, whose Liverpool, N.Y.-based chain has grown to 102 stores, have been longtime supporters of City of Hope.
"I am honored to be selected and thrilled to be working with the Goldbergs to spread the word on the many life-saving research advancements City of Hope makes that benefit patients worldwide," said Amini.
Neil Goldberg added, "We are proud to be working with Michael Amini to build awareness and support of City of Hope, an organization committed to finding a cure for cancer and other life threatening diseases."
Designer Jena Hall and Roger Friesen, president and CEO of case goods source Casana, are co chairs of the National Home Furnishings Industry committee supporting City of Hope, and Kevin O'Connor of Samson Marketing chairs the organization's Spirit of Life campaign.
