"Relay for Life North Shore Long Island NY - June 2, 2012"

Gem Craft Boutique is proud that we will be part of "Relay for Life" at North Shore Middle School in Glen Head, NY on June 2 at 7pm. 

The owner of "Gem Craft Boutique" , Deborah Orgel-Gordon (opening June 2012) has joined the team "Knock Out' to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.  Deborah has lost many family members to Cancer over the years and felt it was time to help give back.  Also Deborah's mother battled breast cancer for a second time in her life last fall, during a time when she couldn't help her mom due to a back injury that kept her flat on her back for 4 months.  I feel now I am back on my feet and this is a way I can give back in a different way to support my mom and others I know who have battled cancer. 

Besides Deborah being part of the team to hopefully raise a goal of $2,500 on her own, she has offered setting up a table with "Pink Ribbon" items and will give back 20% of the proceeds of what is sold at the event on Saturday, June 2nd.

So please consider either joining our team to raise funds, coming down and joining in the cause or please consider donating.   Click on the link below for donating or more info:

"The Pink side of things"

Work has been going on this week at Gem Craft Boutique.  There is not too much that has to be done, because the walls and ceilings are just beautifully done in tin "Fleur de Lis" .  As I stand in my store it reminds me of my favorite city I like to travel to "New Orleans"   So all I had to do this week is add some of my signature pink into the mix on the front and back walls.

Next we are ordering Showcases, shelving and tables to display merchandise....we will be very busy bees to prepare for our expected "Grand Opening" date of Saturday, June 23, 2012!
