NRF Foundation gala raises over $3.2-mn to support talent


January 16, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

The fifth annual National Retail Federation (NRF) Foundation Gala took place on January 13, at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York City, featuring an inspiring awards programme and formal dinner that included both silent and live auctions.

The star-studded event raised more than $3.2 million to support the Foundation’s programmes, including educational initiatives, student scholarships and RISE Up, a powerful, industry-backed credentialing programme.

“We are so fortunate to have retailers and partners who are willing to step up and support our industry and initiatives,” said NRF Foundation president, Ellen Davis. “These company leaders and individuals believe deeply in the future of retail and share our view that retail is the industry that powers America’s workforce. We are determined to put these funds to good use by continuing to expand, promote and execute the programmes and initiatives that empower retail’s workforce.”

The Gala was attended by more than 1,000 retail CEOs and senior executives, industry insiders, celebrities and students who came together to support the future of retail talent and to celebrate The List of People Shaping Retail’s Future. At the Gala, the NRF Foundation also announced the recipients of its Student Challenge and Next Generation scholarships.
