Splurge holds scarf fund-raiser

For the fourth consecutive year, Splurge Unique Gifts, Home Décor and Jewelry is privileged to partner with Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus to donate scarves to patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

From Oct. 1 to Oct. 31 Splurge will donate a pashmina scarf to a chemotherapy patient with every $150 purchase. Splurge customers are invited to hand-write an encouraging note to the patient receiving the scarf.

In the event that a customer would like to donate a scarf without meeting the minimum purchase, scarves are available for sale at a discounted price of only $20 each. At the end of the month Splurge will match the final quantity of donated scarves and double the gift to Greenwich Hospital.

“I am proud to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as I believe we need to increase awareness of this disease that touches so many people’s lives,” Splurge owner Sonia Sotire Malloy said. “Over the past three years Splurge and our loyal clients have donated scarves to over 200 Smilow’s Greenwich Hospital Campus chemotherapy patients. We hope to bring comfort and encouragement to the patients going through treatment with these scarves and their accompanying notes.”

Maria Marini, program director of Oncology services at Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus, added, “Greenwich Hospital is honored to be the recipient of these lovely pashminas which are distributed to cancer patients. For the fourth year in a row we are able to hand out these beautifully tailored scarves to very grateful patients. Splurge has allowed our female patients to be the recipients of a very generous gesture during a very stressful time in their lives.”

Proceeds from Venezia, this year’s gala for Greenwich Hospital, will benefit the hospital’s oncology services. Venezia will be held on Oct. 25 at Greenwich Country Club.

Splurge is also participating in the first-ever Go for Pink shopping event today, Oct. 2, in which 10% of sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Alliance when Go for Pink is mentioned.
