Amidst a glamorous crowd of New York gals-about-town, Diptyque kicked off its first ever sample sale week on July 29th. St. Germain liquor supplied the inventive cocktails for an evening of shopping that directly benefited Gilda’s Club newest online venture, The Living Room. This endeavor is a free online community that is set to launch in fall 2008. Rachel Hager, Vice President of this new enterprise said, “Created and managed by Gilda’s Club Worldwide, The Living Room is an extension of the organization’s global network of individual clubhouses located throughout North America. Like local Gilda’s Clubs, the Living Room is a warm, caring and welcoming place where anyone can find information, understanding and support about learning how to live with cancer. Twenty-four hours a day, irrespective of time or place, members of The Living Room will never have to face cancer alone,” said Hager.

The shopping event raised $2000 for The Living Room, and Andrew Sedlock, Managing Director of Diptyque said, “Everyone is touched by cancer in some way. We felt that exposing our customer base to Gilda’s Club Worldwide and supporting their new initiative, The Living Room, would be a way to give back and raise awareness.”
