The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) and Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Retail Asset Protection Conference successfully partnered to raise money for the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund. This year’s event held, in New Orleans, LA, raised $4,900, surpassing the initial goal of $4,000, making this the most successful campaign yet in the four years that RILA has supported the LPBF.
It’s important to note that all of the donations at this event were made without the benefit of a raffle—which only goes to prove that LP professionals do care.
The LPBF offers assistance to families who suffer a loss of a loved one while conducting the duties of our profession. In addition to distributing funds to the families of the fallen, the LPBF provides financial grants to eligible participants who experience a verifiable economic hardship as a result of qualifying circumstances.
“Thank you once again to RILA for sponsoring the LPBF for the fourth year in a row. Clearly, the exposure that RILA has provided for us has helped tremendously in meeting and exceeding each year’s fundraising goals. Also, a huge “thank you” to all of the LP professionals and solution providers for their very generous support,” said Chris Duke LPC, chairman of the LPBF.
“RILA is honored to team up with LPF and stand with the industry in support of colleagues and their families,” said Lisa LaBruno, senior vice president of retail operations for RILA. “LPF’s tireless efforts to raise funds enables us to show our compassion and generosity and RILA embraces the opportunity to be a part of it.”
We give a special thanks to the entire RILA team who realized the importance of this charity and allowed us to hold the fundraiser.
