Raising a Cup to Leaning In & Lifting Up

Have you ever noticed how the busiest and most successful people always manage to find time to give back to young people entering their fields? Women leaders in the home furnishings & gift industry are especially generous in this way, and the WithIt organization makes it possible for all of us to contribute their mentoring and scholarship programs.

Our friends at PBM hosted a cocktail event at Summer 19 Las Vegas Market to honor an exceptional group of women and mentors with proceeds going to the WithIt Scholarship fund. So much star power in one room! You can read about each of them in detail here
