October 2010 – Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Building Hope One Crib at a Time!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the “Hope” Crib will be on display at the Newport Cottages furniture store in Fashion Island, where the two companies are proudly hosting a special event on Thursday, October 14th from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Members of the press, Fashion Island shoppers, and Orange County's generous community of Breast Cancer Research Supporters will be invited. Luxury items including custom made bedding, a sparkling nursery Chandelier created and donated by I Lite 4 U, beautiful artwork donated by Oopsy Daisy and more - all on display in the nursery vignette styled by Little Crown Interiors - will be raffled off during the event with proceeds from ticket sales to benefit Breast Cancer Research. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to support the Susan G Komen Foundation.
Newport Cottages (one of the nation's leading manufacturers of high end children's furniture) has teamed up with Little Crown Interiors (specialists in luxury nursery and kid's room design) on a very special project to benefit Breast Cancer Research. We are thrilled to announce the creation of the special edition "Hope" Crib and proceeds from every sale will be donated to the Susan G Komen Foundation. 10% of the retail price of the crib will be directed to this cause that has affected so many women. According to the American Cancer Society about 1 in 8 women in the United States (between 12 and 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
This pink, bench-crafted crib will give parents all over the U.S. the chance to donate to Breast Cancer Research, while providing their baby girl with a customized and impeccably-made,perfectly pink crib. To commemorate each donation and serve as a reminder of its purpose, each “Hope” Crib will come with a custom plaque for the owners to inscribe a sentiment of their choosing. Whether parents wish to leave a message of love for their little girl, or dedicate the crib in honor of a survivor or a loved one lost to breast cancer, the crib will stand as a testament to their dedication in keeping their child and all baby girls safe from this tragic disease. Not only will they have a unique piece of furniture, beautiful and lasting for many years to come, but parents will also be helping a cause in which all women, from newborns to grandmothers, should unite. These cribs can be purchased at Newport Cottages authorized dealers nationwide.
