The mission of the nonprofit Housewares Charity Foundation is, in the spirit of
goodwill, to raise funds annually for designated charities and help unite and promote
the philanthropic image of the housewares industry.
In a collaborative effort among industry manufacturers, retailers and allied
industry partners, the Foundation hosts an annual charitable dinner that coincides
with the International Home + Housewares Show. The goals of the dinner are to raise
funds for charities, unite our industry and honor its leaders.
Honorees are selected for their humanitarian efforts and exceptional leadership.
The Foundation endeavors to create an industry legacy by supporting a single charity in
continuity while also partnering annually with charities selected by honorees.
Join us for a star-studded gala at Navy Pier during the
2017 International Home + Housewares Show.

Where giving intersects with fun...where
compassion combines with culinary delights...where the industry connects to raise funds
and awareness and honor its leaders. It’s just plain smart to have heart.
