National Home Furnishings Industry

The National Home Furnishings Industry (NHFI) group was formed in 1965 as one of City of Hope’s first industry-based chapters.  Lead by dedicated industry and community leaders this group encompasses every related industry segment: retailers, manufacturers, sales representatives, suppliers and associated service providers.
 
NHFI is one of City of Hope’s premier fundraising groups and 2015 marks their celebration of 50 years of giving hope to cancer and diabetes patients around the world.  In this time, NHFI has raised over $52 million dollars to fund innovative medical research and quality patient care at City of Hope.
 
Each year NHFI begins a new fundraising campaign lead by their two flagship events, the Spirit of Life® Award Dinner held during the April Market in High Point, North Carolina and the West Coast Golf and Tennis Tournament each June in Coto de Caza, California. These events spearhead the annual fundraising efforts, however many industry companies partner with City of Hope to raise additional funds with amazing success.  Across the country retailers offer charitable sales events donating a percentage of their sales, manufactures create specialty products or lines benefitting City of Hope, and industry executives and employees create fun and unique local fundraisers.
 
City of Hope salutes the National Home Furnishings Industry, and all its members, for its half-century of support. Congratulations for helping us to save countless lives and restore hopeful dreams.
