Toscanos Cafe & Wine Bar, the Puyallup Italian restaurant known for giving away handpainted glasses every March, is now raising money for Good Samaritan's cancer programs with the sale of glass votives.
Here's the release from the restaurant:
You have heard of a 1000 points of light. How about 400 hand blown candles providing light and help to cancer survivors and their families?
“glassybaby” is bringing its mission of giving and handmade votives to Puyallup for the first time. Hundreds of glassybaby will be at Toscanos Cafe & Wine Bar Tuesday May 1 between 5 - 8pm. 10% of all sales from the event will be donated to the Oncology Helping Hands Fund at Good Samaritan MultiCare Regional Cancer Center. This fund provides for needed services for cancer patients and their families.
The story of glassbaby is nearly as glowing as the candles themselves.
glassybaby was founded by a three time cancer survivor who found great hope and healing in the light of a lit, handmade votive during her cancer battle. She wanted to spread that hope, and began producing these unique hand blown votive candle holders. Today, glassybaby are handmade by a team of 60+ artists in 400+ colors at a Seattle studio.
The company has donated more than $875,000 from the sale of thousands of glassybaby to charities dedicated to healing and helping cancer patients with day to day needs during chemotherapy
