Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Rock

Designers Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams have been celebrating the 25th anniversary of their furniture empire by giving back to 25 communities where their signature stores appear. Last night was the grand opening of their newest store in Burlington, Massachusetts. This was the third event we have attended & it was fabulous. The event featured Robin Wilson author of “Clean Design: Wellness For Your Lifestyle” & there was a silent auction & raffle to benefit Mission of Deeds which provides beds, furniture & household essentials for people in need. The company has been recognized for its innovative campaigns including being honored with the Public Visibility Award at the first GLAAD Media Awards in Advertising. When asked what their personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights Gold stated, “Well Bob & I living down south starting the factory in 1989 by 1992 when President Clinton was elected, we really first started to see the backlash & the anti LGBT vitriolic talk, especially from religious leaders down south & throughout the country & that really got us involved. When we saw progress on LGBT civil rights go backwards we became involved with the Human Rights Campaign, in Equality North Carolina & several different organizations & we have been very active since then. About eight years ago I cofounded with Reverend Jimmy Creech “Faith In America” which educates people about the harm of religious bigotry to the LGBT community & Bob is on the board & very supportive. So we have a really deep commitment & I would go out & say that of anybody going out to buy home furnishings there is no company that is more on the forefront of not just supporting LGBT advocacy groups & having started one but also supporting candidates that vote for our equal rights.”
