Kick Off of Fundraising Campaign for Langs
Celebrate Christmas in Style: STARS Men’s Wear Kicks-off Fundraising Campaign for Langs!
Cambridge On Saturday December 8th 2012, STARS Men’s Wear in the Cambridge Centre Mall will host an event marking the kick off of a two-week long fundraising campaign for Langs. STARS Men’s Wear will donate a portion of their day’s sales from Saturday December 8th to Langs and will also be selling paper tree ornaments for the 2 weeks preceding the event for $2 each, all proceeds to Langs.
The kick-off event on the 8th will take place between 1-4pm at the STARS Men’s Wear store in the Cambridge Centre Mall. There will be light refreshments, prizes and live entertainment provided by Junyet Yetiker.
STARS Men’s Shops has been a long standing community partner of Langs. STARS hosted a previous event on behalf of Langs, much like this one, for Father’s Day in 2011 for which Mayor Doug Craig personally visited the store to thank the staff. Bruce Paul Marceau, STARS Cambridge Mall Store Manager said “We all appreciate the support Langs provides for all age groups through their programs and services. Connecting with the community is very important to our organization and we are very pleased to be able to help support Langs’ vision.”
This kick-off event provides an opportunity for people to learn more about Langs and how their programs and services are crucial to the Cambridge community, and also a chance to give back to both our local economy and in turn, Langs.
All proceeds from this event will go towards the local families Langs supports at Christmas. “We are so pleased to be working with STARS Men’s Shops,’” said Bill Davidson, Langs Executive Director. “Community Partnerships such as this allow Langs to continue to reach towards its goal of creating meaningful spaces, places and partnerships.”
Langs is a neighbourhood-based organization that has been providing a range of recreational, educational, social and health programs and services for all ages, for over 30 years.
STARS Men’s Shops is a dynamic company with a bright future in the men’s wear industry. STARS is a Canadian Company founded more than 50 years ago in Kitchener, Ontario by brothers Harry and Gordon Strauss. Today they have more than 20 stores in Ontario with their headquarters in Toronto.
