Ardene begins Starlight Foundation promotion
Montreal-based fashion retailer Ardene has begun a promotion in collaboration with the Starlight Children's Foundation Canada. Through the holiday season, the retail chain will sell a line of slippers in its stores and online to benefit the foundation. The funds raised will be used to provide unique hospital gowns to teenagers with serious illnesses through its "Ward & Robes" program.
"Starlight's mandate to empower young adults through the Ward & Robes program is aligned with our belief that fashion should be celebrated with fearless enthusiasm," said Mark Dervishian, chief operating officer of Ardene. "Through the Ardene Foundation, our company's dedicated charity organization, we hope to bring the joy of self-expression to teens in need. We've also been longtime supporters of Starlight, previously sponsoring initiatives across the country, which makes this partnership that much more special."
