ICPF Announces Co-Chairs of Seventh Annual Holiday Weekend in New York
The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) has announced that John & Sandra Bird (JB Machinery) will serve as honorary Co-Chairs of the 2014 ICPF Holiday Weekend in New York fundraiser.

In its seventh year, the New York event serves as ICPF's annual fundraiser where manufacturing and supplier executives and their spouses can support the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation while socializing, networking and enjoying the best of New York City during the holiday season.

John and Sandra have attended each of the past six annual New York events and invite ICPF Corporate Partners, ICPF supporters and their spouses to gather for ICPF's Holiday Weekend in New York on Friday and Saturday, December 12 & 13, 2014. This year's participants will begin with a Friday evening reception sponsored and hosted by Anthony Pratt, Mike and Renie Harwood, and Pratt Industries. After free time on Saturday morning for leisurely brunches, holiday shopping, sightseeing and museums, participants will attend the Saturday matinee performance of the Broadway hit, Kinky Boots, winner of five Tony awards, including "Best New Musical" (co-sponsored by Equipment Finance Corp. & Kiwiplan). Executives and their spouses or guests later will participate in a Saturday evening reception and dinner at a renowned New York restaurant (sponsored by Bobst North America). A late night gathering Saturday night at the host hotel will be sponsored by MarquipWardUnited. There also will be the traditional ICPF surprise holiday gift for participants (sponsored by Gerber Innovations).

In addition to participating in the event, John and Sandra are asking industry executives to invite clients, potential ICPF Corporate Partners, and to consider rewarding key executives from their companies with this special weekend holiday function. "It is wonderful to be able to mix with industry peers in a totally informal social environment. This ICPF event is both our special family holiday and business social with long time industry friends, and new participants who become new friends. We encourage corrugated manufacturers and suppliers, and their spouses, to join us in supporting ICPF on December 12 & 13. Once you join us, you too will want to return annually for each ICPF Holiday Weekend in New York."

By popular demand, The Muse, a Kimpton boutique hotel in the Theatre District will serve as ICPF's host hotel again this year. Hotel rooms go quickly during this special time of the season, so executives are encouraged to register and make their hotel reservations through ICPF this spring or by early summer at the latest. The first month of registration has been active with over 30 couples registering, but there is room for 20 more couples.

Event registration is $2,900 per corporate partner participant (accompanying spouse or guest is included free of charge). ICPF Supporters also are invited and can participate for $2,975. Half of the tax deductible registration fee supports ICPF's operations and programs.
