City of Hope is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.

The Harrows will receive their awards at the West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament on June 10, 2013 at the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club in Coto de Caza, CA. As City of Hope celebrates 100 years of care and discovery, this special day for the National Home Furnishings Industry and Hollywood Bed Frame will be especially significant.  Rick Powell leads a dedicated committee of volunteers who annually stage one of the best-attended and supported philanthropic event in the industry.  For more information about the event, please contact Yolanda V.

One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.  Designated as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest honor bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope is a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Its lifesaving research and treatment advances improve the lives of people around the nation, and numerous breakthrough cancer drugs are based on technology pioneered at City of Hope. Further, its commitment to compassionate patient care and its approach to individualized treatment are considered models for supportive care in the United States.

Hollywood Bed Frame Company was founded 80 years ago by Irving and Hannah Harrow. Their son, Larry, has engineered the company’s product line and has been awarded 16 U.S. patents. He is active in many philanthropic endeavors, as is his son, Jason. During Jason’s tenure as President, Hollywood Bed Frame’s sales have tripled, as they have diversified and expanded their customer base from a regional to an international business. The company is a major supplier to key retailers, the hospitality industry and the U.S. Armed Forces.

“I am proud to support City of Hope, an organization that is committed to creating longer and healthier lives for people globally,” said Larry Harrow. “Jason and I are honored to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and be recognized by our peers, all of whom believe that City of Hope’s lifesaving research, especially in the areas of cancer and diabetes, positively affect everyone’s quality of life.”

Larry Harrow has served on the Boards of the California Furniture Manufacturers Association, American Diabetes Association, DARE America, Volunteers of America and the American Youth Soccer Organization. Jason has followed in his father’s philanthropic footsteps with Board positions at CFMA, the Guardians and the German Shepherd Rescue. Sharon Joyce, Vice President of Industries Development at City of Hope, effusively praised these dedicated businessmen, who share their energy and expertise as volunteers and financial supporters. “We are privileged to honor Larry and Jason, who exemplify the leadership and dedication that are embodied in the Lifetime Achievement Award.”
