The housewares industry came together for "A Purpose. A Plan. A Promise," to raise nearly $2 million at the Housewares Charity Foundation's (HCF) 20th annual gala on Monday, March 20. Proceeds from the event, held at Chicago's Navy Pier, benefited the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the HCF's legacy charity, and No Kid Hungry, a campaign by Share Our Strength that works to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food where they live, learn and play. Since the first gala in 1998, HCF has raised more than $49 million and has been credited with donating more than $28 million to BCRF. The 21st HCF gala will be held March 12, 2018.
