Teaneck, NJ, August 12, 2016: The Teaneck Chamber of Commerce is pleased to have been able to partner with the Do Wonders Charity (www.dowonderscharity.org), a program headed up by Lillian Lee of Lillian Lee’s Salon on Teaneck Rd in Teaneck that offers wigs at no costs to women battling cancer that cannot otherwise afford a wig of their own while going through chemotherapy treatments. The partnership was at the third annual Ladies’ Night Out event that took place in June, and the Chamber committee voted to donate $500 of the proceeds that were raised that evening to Do Wonders Charity.
“When the committee first heard about Do Wonders,” said Jennifer Glass, Vice President of the Chamber and chair of the event, “it was an easy decision for us to make. We all know someone that battled cancer and saw the pain they went through when they lost their hair. As women, we know how important it is to look good, which in turn, makes us all feel good. By helping these women get a wig from Lillian’s organization, we felt like we can really be there to make a difference.”
“I was thrilled to be the beneficiary organization of this year’s Ladies’ Night Out event,” said Lillian Lee, founder of Do Wonders Charity, “and was thrilled that the Chamber was able to raise $500 for these women. It really touched my heart when I got the news that the Chamber of Commerce wanted to support my organization. It affirmed my belief in people that no matter how busy we get we all want to help. For anyone that still wants to help, I’m always accepting donations of new or gently used wigs to offer to my clients in addition to tax-deductible monetary donations too.”
The Teaneck Chamber of Commerce would once again like to thank all of the vendors, attendees and sponsors that made the evening such a success and without whose support, the program would not have been successful. The sponsors included Five Star Premier Residences of Teaneck, Bogota Savings Bank, Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., Homewatch Caregivers of Bergen County, the Rotary Club of Ridgefield Park & Bogota, 7-11, Liz Santos/Residential Home Funding and Bauer Printing Company.
