For all our design industry friends and supporters who will be attending the HD Expo + Conference in Las Vegas next week:
I wanted to let you all know that I will be speaking at Hospitality Design magazine’s booth on Wednesday, May 18 at 2:00 pm on “Philanthropy and Business – Why it Matters Now.”
Trisha Wilson, CEO and Founder of Wilson Associates, established The Wilson Foundation in 1997 with a two-fold motivation: to provide opportunities for an education and a better future to extremely disadvantaged children, and to provide some balance to the world of luxury, beauty and privilege in which she and her employees worked every day.
“My employees and I have been blessed to work with some of the most beautiful and luxurious products and properties in the world, and it’s sometimes easy to forget there are children out there who have no parents, no education, and no opportunities,” Wilson says. “Through The Wilson Foundation, we and our industry partners and friends focus on these forgotten children, to give them hope and help.”
Social responsibility is part of the corporate culture at Wilson Associates, and I am thrilled to discuss this important topic as part of HD Magazine’s annual ‘HD Salon.’ The HD booth will be located on the upper level, Sands lobby, adjacent to the Radical Innovation Exhibit—Mosaic on the concourse.
Please stop by to say hello — I will have giveaways for all our friends!
Hope to see you there!
Tori Mannes, Executive Director
