Helps Exceed Fundraising Goal in Support of Charity
(New York, NY – September 13, 2012) M2L, a leading distributor of iconic, modern furnishings, is pleased to announce that its guest window at Housing Works – part of the organization's "Best of Fall" charity auctions – exceeded its fundraising goal by more than $1,000. Design lovers placed their bids on the online auction site shophousingworks.com – one coffee table received over 50 bids! – to get a great deal on the latest design icons for the home or office. M2L donated over $16,000 worth of products to benefit the non-profit organization, which were also on view at Housing Works' Columbus Avenue store window, designed by interior designer Jarret Yoshida. The sale closed to the public on September 11th.
According to Michael Manes, president of M2L, "We are so delighted that Housing Works exceeded its goals with the M2L Guest Window. We are indebted to Jarret for designing such a dramatic window and for giving us the opportunity to support Housing Works. We believe in its mission to help those that are homeless and have HIV/AIDS to find housing solutions that work."
