MATTHEWS, NC (May 1st, 2017) – The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) and Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) 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, provides financial assistance to Loss Prevention professionals and their families in times of need.  100% of contributions go to the retail asset protection community.

"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 fund raising goals. Also, a huge "thank you" to all of the LP professionals and solution providers for their very generous support,” explains Chris Duke LPC, chairman of the LPBF.

“The retail loss prevention industry rallies behind its people and RILA is humbled by the opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of families struck by hardship.  We value our partnership with the Loss Prevention Foundation and we recognize them for the important work they do,” said Lisa LaBruno, Sr. Vice President of Retail Operations for RILA.

We give a special thanks to the entire RILA team who realized the importance of this charity and allowed us to hold the fundraiser.
