The Carlisle Collection celebrates the 12th year of its Fabric of Hope silk scarf program and partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure by unveiling on Tuesday the 2010 scarf: an Asian-inspired cherry blossom and butterfly theme.
Since 1998, the Carlisle Collection’s design team has created a one-of-a-kind silk scarf representing their commitment to women’s health and well-being. The scarves are only available from August to November.
“Each year, the Fabric of Hope program enjoys tremendous support from our clients, who make donations through our consultants, payable to Komen for the Cure in the amount of $125 or more. They receive the Fabric of Hope scarf as a gift with their donation,” says William Rondina, ceo, chairman and founder of Carlisle. “We are very proud to have created a charitable program in which 100% of the donations go directly to Komen for the Cure. To date, contributions from our Fabric of Hope program have totaled more than $1.7 million.”
“Susan G. Komen for the Cure is thankful for its 12 year partnership with Carlisle Collection,” said Katrina McGhee, senior vice president, Global Partnerships and Business Development for Komen for the Cure. “Their support over the years has made a difference in the lives of women facing breast cancer and will continue to do so.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2010. By making a donation through a Carlisle consultant to Komen for the Cure, individuals not only assist in the fight against breast cancer, but also receive the silk scarf to commemorate their generosity.
About Susan G. Komen for the Cure:
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is now the world’s largest breast cancer organization and the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer with nearly $1.5 billion invested to date. komen.org
