LAS VEGAS — Baci Lingerie announced that it has raised $4,400 for the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund for breast cancer at its first annual charity dinner during the 2012 International Lingerie Show (ILS) held in Las Vegas on Sept. 11.
The company said social consciousness and philanthropy are integral aspects of the Baci Lingerie company philosophy and in keeping with the spirit it gave ILS attendees and Baci customers the opportunity to join in supporting the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund, a division of the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Guests were also treated with dinner and drinks at Gordon Biersch and received swag bags and Baci breast cancer awareness pins.
Baci donated $100 to the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund on behalf of each dinner guest, and the Koretsky Family Foundation matched each donation.
“The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund would like to thank Baci Lingerie and the Koretsky Family Foundation for their most generous donation of $4,400. Baci is a socially conscious company integrating philanthropy into its everyday business model,” Cheryl Stein, founder of The Eileen Stein, Jacoby Fund said.
“We felt the dinner was a great way to combine our desire to fund breast cancer research with an opportunity to further cultivate relationships with retailers and buyers,” added Baci director of sales and operations Alicia Sinclair.
“Over $4,000 is a great start, but we plan on doing so much more in the years to come," Koretsky Family Foundation owner Frank Koretsky said.
He added, “I was so happy to be a part of this first year event. It’s a great start to an annual fund raising event, which gets others around the U.S. involved with a fantastic charity. I was very proud to match the funds donated by Baci. Thank you to all who attended and the great staff at Baci Lingerie USA.”
