NT shops unite to fight cancer

Three North Tonawanda businesses band together for event to benefit Cancer Services


Tonawanda News —

From there, it’s on to Hip Gypsy at 78 Webster St., where co-owner Holly Rankie said there will be cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, opportunities to do some shopping and a free gift of a lavender sachet for participants from 4 to 7 p.m.

Finally, it all winds up from 6 to 9 p.m. at Webster’s Bistro Bar at 102 Webster St., with food, beverages, special lilac fortune cookies with prizes inside, basket raffles, a prize wheel and 50/50 raffle. Passports stamped at all three locations can be submitted to win a grand prize of a basket to which the three businesses contributed.

The three businesses, usually closed Mondays, are opening specifically for the event. Hughes said they wanted to show strength amongst women business owners, “to create an event that celebrates life, celebrates community, the strength of us as a downtown area. There’s a lot of things that we can do for each other.

“We’re working together; we’re trying to do a lot of things collaboratively. That’s how it works; we’re a community.”

Tickets for Luxuries for Lavender are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the event. For tickets or more information, visit one of the businesses, call Signature Salon at 692-1168 or Hip Gypsy at 260-1313 or email
