NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Eurotique Corsets has paired up with local South Florida resident Madie Bitondo to help raise money for the South Florida Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and her campaign for Woman of the Year.
In October 2011, Bitondo’s father passed from Mantle Cell Lymphoma at the age of 53.
“His battle with this disease was grueling; he suffered from countless infections, a transplant and his inability to walk. But throughout his entire battle he never lost hope, he continued to spread words of encouragement to family members and close friends,” the company said. “It was during this time that Madie made a commitment to her father that she too would spread the word but in a different way. After losing her father on Oct.31, Madie’s mission became clear, she needed to keep her father’s fight alive.”
Bitondo is nominated as a candidate for Woman of the Year for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Each year, 10-15 leaders of the community vie for the title of Man and Women of the Year by raising funds for LLS in a 10-week campaign fighting against blood cancers.
Bitondo hosted a series of fundraisers that have generated more than $60,000 in the fight for LLS.
Eurotique has donated corsets for silent auctions and are contributing a percentage of its sales from every Green Corset that is sold during the campaign.
“We were honored when Madie approached us with her campaign, she has been a loyal customer of ours for many years and it was our turn to support her,” said Peter Grieco of Eurotique.
On June 8 the winner will be announced at the Grand Finale celebration and will be noted through national and local publicity, like USA TODAY and Palm Tran bus advertisements.
