West Coast Golf and Tennis Tournament

City of Hope’s National Home Furnishings Industry presents the 

24th Annual West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament
honoring
Grover Geiselman
Owner & President
Jim McIngvale
Owner & President
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 $9 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.

Jim McIngvale Biography
For over 30 years, Jim McIngvale, known locally as “Mattress Mack”, has brought fine furniture and design to homes in Houston, TX and beyond. From the beginning, Mack has focused on delighting every customer, every time. Gallery Furniture pioneered same day delivery with better than white glove service that sets the standard. Because Gallery Furniture warehouses everything themselves, their complete selection is always available for same day purchase and delivery. 
 
With Headquarters in Houston, TX,  Gallery Furniture believes that purchasing furniture for your home should be enjoyable and full of great choices. An extensive selection of custom fabrics and materials, an in-house creative design team, and a welcoming sales force assures you of a successful furniture buying experience. A children’s playground and a restaurant for the entire family turns Gallery Furniture into an experience not to be missed.
 
Gallery Furniture has an array of styles for any room in your home. Custom orders are available for your living room, dining room, home theater, and even bedroom furniture with most available in 14-45 days. In addition to a wide range of well-known mattress brands, Gallery Furniture offers the American-made Mack-O-Pedic mattresses, conceived by Mattress Mack and his team, using their decades of sleep research. Gallery Furniture is proud to collaborate with master American furniture makers from the Amish community who build beautiful furniture that will last for generations. Listening to what is needed to make a house into a home makes Gallery Furniture the first choice for quality, value, and service.
