There has been lots going on this week at International Prom’s Fashion Week at AmericasMart in Atlanta,Georgia. Retailers have been gearing up for Prom 2019! Attending shows, writing orders, and ordering the most fabulous styles for you! In addition to the shopping, we also attended the International Promise Foundation Annual Black Tie Gala. The International Promise Foundation is a non profit organization that works to have a positive impact on our world. The profits from the black tie gala help to aid in pressing issues facing teens today. There are many things that go on at the gala. There are sponsors, an awards presentation, a silent auction, and a casino set up just for fun! There were numerous sponsors for this year’s gala, and we are ever so thankful for their generosity! Evening kicked off with the Retailer’s Choice Awards which are voted on by stores to award the hard work and dedication of brands and individuals in the industry. At this year’s gala, over fifty awards were given out to various manufacturers, customer service representatives, and retailers. It was such a special presentation, and we are so glad we got to be a part of it! Congratulations to all of the recipients, well deserved! There also were several silent auction donors that donated awesome items! This year, computers, jewelry, and autographed bats and baseballs, etc were up for grabs. I mean, who would want to miss that?! With that being said, huge thank you to the silent auction donors! After the awards presentation, retailers and manufacturers could play casino games with play money just for fun! There were multiple different tables to play at, so everyone would win raffle tickets. At the end of the night, tickets were drawn out of a bucket to give prizes to a few lucky winners! The 2018 International Promise Foundation Black Tie Gala was a huge success for a great cause. Huge thank you to all of the sponsors, manufacturers, retailers, and everyone else involved for a great night!
