Neuburger line to benefit research
Michele SanFilippo -- Home Textiles Today, August 2, 2004
Starting in October, Karen Neuburger/KN Ltd. will be offering a line of 11 sleepwear and gift accessories to benefit breast cancer research through the end of the year.
A portion of all collection sales will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to fund clinical and genetic research.
In addition to pajamas, the Karen Neuburger Pink Ribbon Signature collection includes chenille throws, decorative pillows, robes, lounge socks, writing journals, cosmetic bags and scrapbook paper. The products will be available at department stores and select retailers throughout the year.
"Breast cancer prevention is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I am thrilled that our company is able to help fight this disease," said designer Karen Neuburger.
"In addition to raising money, I am hopeful that this line of products will bring comfort to those who are currently battling breast cancer or those who have fought the battle and won," she added.
"The longer these products are out on the market, the greater our ability to make a difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families," she said.
KN Ltd. has been a supporter of breast cancer research and prevention for nearly 10 years. KN Ltd. formed an official partnership with BCRF in June shortly after Neuburger had hosted one of her PJ Parties in the Sky and donated some of the proceeds.
