Debbie brings her passion and knowledge of how to reach those in our communities who are frequently overlooked or bypassed by society. Debbie’s professional life might have been in the mattress industry with Sleep America but her heart work has been in bridging the gaps for those in need. In 2004 Sleep America Charities, now Debbie Gaby Charities, was formed and they donated their time, talent and treasures to the community. For the past 20 years Debbie Gaby, in partnership with Dillard’s, has held 10 celebrity luncheon fashion shows where she raised money to support local charities including the Salvation Army, VALLEYLIFE and YWCA. Debbie has chaired events and capital campaigns for non-profits throughout the greater Phoenix area. When asked how many mattresses she has donated she answered, “Tens of thousands”. Including capital campaigns, cash and mattress donations, over the past 20 years, she has given over 50 million dollars.
