Furniture First, a purchasing cooperative of U.S. furniture retailers based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has partnered with Ante4Autism to support families and kids affected by autism.
At the group’s board of directors meeting in May, members passed a resolution to donate $10,000 to the Ante4Autism charity event each year for the next three years.
“The board of Furniture First has been looking to partner with a national charity and since autism touches so many lives, both throughout the Furniture First membership, as well as across the country, the Ante4Autism charity event was a good fit,” said Andrew Kauffman, chief executive officer.
The furniture industry charity event takes place each year during the Winter Las Vegas Market. The 10th annual poker tournament is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2018.
Ante4Autism founder Doug Krinsky said: “The co-hosts were very excited to hear about the unanimous support from the Furniture First board and three-year commitment.
“Furniture First members have been supportive of our event in the past, but this commitment takes that support to a whole new level. They are a class act in every sense of the word.”
