Only You Gifts - ALS Fundraiser
Fundraising Honor Roll
to join in on the fight…
Local Long Island business owner
Melinda Cantor, owner of Only You Gifts, Islip and 2nd place winner in the 17th Annual Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest will run an all day wrapping event at her store at 549 Main Street, Islip 631-277-2333 on Sunday, December 21, 2014.
100% of the proceeds will be donated to the ALS Association Greater NY Chapter.
She will use the same speed and creativity needed to get her as far as she did in the Scoth Brand contest to wrap as many gifts as possible for the full day. There will be suggested donations for small items as low as $5 and will add additional embellishments to those with the larger donations and larger packages. Packages will be wrapped in colors of red, silver and white which are in line with the ALS Associations colors as well as the holiday.
Checks to ALS Association or cash will be happily accepted. If a credit card is the only form of payment we will have the ALS site available for donation processing.
This cause is very dear to Melinda since her mom, Josephine Pace, lost her battle with ALS this on September 12, 2013.

Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or register to join me today.
