NYC Mayor Bloomberg Proclaims today “Home For the Cure Day”
October 29, 2009,
New York – In honor of a special reception being held tonight benefitting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization toward breast cancer research, public education and medical care initiatives, the City of New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has issued a proclamation naming today “Home for the Cure Day.”
CHF Industries principals Frank Foley and Joan Karron are hosting the event, which is being held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at their One Park Avenue showroom, where Dara Richardson-Heron, MD, the ceo of Komen Greater NYC, will be the featured speaker.
Miller, senior vp of design at high-end area rug house Karastan, was diagnosed with the disease in 2005. The following year, she organized a fundraising reception during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in conjunction with Executives Working in Home Textiles (EWHT) and has continued to do so every October since.
This year’s Home for the Cure event is sponsored by five industry associations: EWHT, International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA), Greater New York Home Furnishings Association, American Society of Interior Designers, and National Kitchen and Bath Association. Corporate sponsors are funding the event so that all proceeds can be donated to Susan G. Komen.
Donations to Komen for the Cure will be accepted at the door or can be pledged online at www.info-komen.org/goto/home_for_the_cure.
