For the past 50 years, the National Home Furnishings Industry (NHFI) has supported City of Hope, one of the world’s foremost cancer and diabetes research hospitals. From California to North Carolina, this outstanding institution has become the industry’s “charity of choice.” NHFI’s annual West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament has become a great opportunity for industry partners to raise money and awareness for City of Hope while gathering informally to relax and socialize with colleagues and competitors.

Over its history, proceeds have totaled more than $7 million. NHFI is committed to supporting City of Hope so we can continue to rise to new challenges and seize exciting opportunities — those that hold the promise of improved treatments and cures for people battling deadly diseases in Southern California, across the country and around the world.

Our Honorees

George Tsai
Chairman
 
George Tsai, chairman, founded Fairmont Designs in 1984.  Today, Fairmont  Designs is an industry leader servicing Top 100 North American retailers, major hotel brands worldwide,  800 bath & plumbing showrooms in North America. Fairmont Designs also operate a retail chain of 106 stores in the Greater China market.
George was born in Taiwan.  He attended high school in Japan. As a young man, George saw his father struggling to produce tables for west coast importers.  He set out to establish a business where he could be in control of his own destiny.  From a humble beginning in Cerritos, California, in an empty warehouse with two folding chairs -- one used as a makeshift desk, George built a reputation in wood furniture and led his fast-growing company to own and operate 7 furnishings manufacturing facilities in 4 countries.
George received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in engineering and a Master’s of Engineering from UC Berkeley. He and his wife Chris Kung are Southern California residents and have two children, Justin, 31 and Tiffany, 23.  George lost his sister, Vivian Tsai in 1978 when she was 18 years of age after a 14 month battle with lymphoma.  He is pleased to be the first Asian American honored by City of Hope and dedicates this acknowledgment to his sister’s memory.
 
Jason Liu
CEO
 
Jason Liu joined Fairmont Designs in 1990 and serves as CEO.  Liu and Tsai families have long standing family ties and together they have formed a synergy that has propelled the company and their international growth.  Their complimentary roles are like the brakes and accelerator of a car, two forces interconnected and interdependently working to move the company forward in any climate.Jason was born in Taiwan and graduated from Fu- Jen University of Taiwan with a Business Administration Degree.   Jason and his wife Jane Chen live in LA with their daughter Mimi 26.
