Trailblazers & Titans Gala
The Home Fashions Product Association (HFPA) and Home Textiles Today are joining forces to co-host this wonderful event, which will take place at the Harvard Club of New York City on Tuesday, Sept. 20
The HTT is celebrating the in-person return of the annual Trailblazers & Titans awards, which will honor two retail companies and two supplier companies. Previous honorees include a number of our colleagues, partners and CERTIFIED clients including Bed Bath & Beyond, Pegasus, Wayfair and Welspun.
As part of the fundraising there will be a silent auction and ASL are proud to be donating the latest LG air cleaner that has been CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®, ,the LG PuriCare™ AeroTower™ Air Purifying Fan Air Purifier.
We will also be donating 10 licences to the “Healthier Homes Awareness” program valued at $3970 ($397 each). This is a unique accredited program for professionals seeking to have an empathetic and insightful overview into the challenges faced by families with asthma and allergies. It also highlights frameworks and and toolkits on what they can do to spot new commercial opportunities to create healthier homes.
The HFPA Foundation is fundraising to support its scholarship program, which provides scholarships to students enrolled in surface design or home product marketing courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). As a sponsor the foundation scholarships, we are delighted to say will be donating $3000 directly towards the scholarships. This donation is made with honour and enthusiasm because we are true believers in education. To educate is to empower. The future of the textile industry must be underpinned by a holistic approach to production, including the impact that textiles have on our indoor air and therefore on our health.
