HIGH POINT—Based on a steady stream of input from attendees, IHFRA’s 24th Annual Furniture Industry Awards Gala was an immense success.

This year’s event, held at the Sheraton Four Seasons Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, NC,  attracted close to 600 attendees who came to pay tribute to Retailer Of The Year Jeff Child of RC Willey, Pillar Of The Industry, Klaussner’s Bill Wittenberg, ICON Award winner Bob Maricich of IMC, Distinguished Service Award winner Frank Lorenzo, Legacy Award winner Tom Schuckert and Rising Star Award winner Alyssa Barrett.

A donation of $2,500 to The Muscular Dystrophy Association was presented to Jeff Child in his honor.  IHFRA donated the same amount on behalf of Bill Wittenberg to the ASPCA.

Red carpet interviews with attendees were conducted by Furniture/Today’s Editor in Chief Bill McLoughlin and by noted interior designer Connie Post of Connie Post Co.

This year’s entertainment was provided by the Motown Legacy Review and the band brought Motown’s best hits to the audience.

The crowd also praised the meal which took the notion of soul food—ribs and chicken, to a new level of sophistication and presentation.

An event of this scale always takes input and support from the industry and IHFRA could not have created an event at this level without the generous support of our sponsors.  

IHFRA would like to once again thank our Gold sponsors AICO/AMINI Innovation, Corp., Ashley Furniture, Klaussner Home Furnishings, Renaissance and Zenith Global Logistics.

Crown Mark was this year’s Silver Sponsor and our Bronze Sponsors this year included  HMI/Home Meridian International, Homelegance, Jonathan Louis,  SouthernMotion and TD Partnership Programs.

We also want to thank every person and company that supported the event by placing an ad in our commemorative journal.
