Holiday fundraiser benefits Spring
(December 2, 2007)--The Couleur
Collection fashion and art boutique at 241 US
Route 1 last week hosted its annual holiday fundraising
sale to benefit a local charity. This year's sale
supported Spring Harbor
Hospital of Westbrook, the state's largest
nonprofit hospital serving individuals with mental
health concerns. A portion of the proceeds from the
one-day sale totaled $400, which will benefit hospital
programming for youth and families.
Spring Harbor Hospital trustee Joan Houghton, who
works part-time at the boutique, collaborated with
Couleur Collection owner Marcia Feller to make the
fundraiser possible. Also on hand for the sale were
Couleur Collection staff DoDo Stevens, Kathy Foster, and
Nancy Foster Wolf.
"We are extremely grateful for the support
of Marcia Feller and the staff of the Couleur Collection,"
said Spring Harbor CEO Dennis King. "We are
especially grateful to Joan Houghton for suggesting our
organization as the beneficiary of this year's fundraiser."
Spring Harbor Hospital is the region's most
comprehensive provider of nonprofit mental health
treatment, physician training, and clinical research
programs. Serving more than 3,000 individuals and
families each year, Spring Harbor is also home to The
Glickman Family Center for Child and Adolescent
Psychiatry and the state's only intensive treatment
program for youth with developmental disorders and
mental illness. For more information, visit www.springharbor.org.
