Shop for a Cause–in Wailea
By Wendy Osher
Chico’s boutique hosts a “Shop to Benefit a Charity Night,” this Thursday, July 21, 2011 at the Shops at Wailea. Chico’s will donate 10% of its proceeds between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. from this event to Hospice Maui.
Funds will be used to assist Hospice Maui in its ongoing mission to provide comfort and care to terminally ill patients and their families on Maui.
“The downturn in the economy has affect almost everybody,” said Hospice Maui Director Greg Lagoy. “If we all join together to help our local businesses,” said Lagoy, “then the businesses turn around and support our local non-profits, and we all benefit while also helping to grow our local economy.”
For 30 years, Hospice Maui has been serving the island’s terminally ill patients and their families by providing in-home care, grief support and counseling.
