ICFF Announces Silent Auction to End Alzheimer’s and the Education Fund Award


During the 30th edition of ICFF, which will take place May 20-23, 2018 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, ICFF will host a silent auction with proceeds to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and the Anna Hernandez/Luna Textiles Education Fund Award in memory of Anna Hernandez, the award-winning founder of Luna Textiles, who succumbed to Alzheimer’s at the age of 56. The award recognizes her distinguished career and female business owners whose firms specialize in interior design or product design. The first $5,000 raised will be used to match the Anna Hernandez-Luna Textiles Education Fund Award, given to an up-and-coming female designer.

This new design industry initiative will involve the Fair’s 900 exhibiting companies, which will be invited to donate the latest designs in flooring, carpets, kitchen and bath products, and art objects to be auctioned off to the ICFF audience. Attendees can bid on items during the course of the four-day Fair. Silent auction item donations will also be profiled on icff.com

The Anna Hernandez-Luna Textiles Education Fund Award will be presented by the IIDA Foundation on Wednesday, May 23 at 3 p.m., followed by a gala reception and ceremony for the ICFF auction winners.
