December 1-3, 2011 – Champions for Charity

by | Nov 20, 2011 | 0 comments

For the the first time ever, the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation will participate in Americana Manhasset and Wheatley Plaza’s Champions for Charity®.

Champions for Charity® Holiday Shopping Benefit is December 1, 2 & 3, 2011. Help support HNF by doing your holiday shopping at participating Americana Manhasset and Wheatley Plaza stores during these three days, when 25% of your designated pre-tax purchases will be donated back to us!


You can also pre-shop in the name of HNF! Americana Manhasset’s Personal Shopping Service can accommodate customers who would like to shop on behalf of HNF but who will be out of town during the actual event. To pre-select items for Champions for Charity® call Danielle Merollo at 800.818.6767. Services also include complimentary gift-wrapping and business gifts!


How does it work? Simply register for a CHAMPION CARD which is the quick and efficient way to participate in Champions for Charity®.  Be sure todesignate 25% of your purchases to HNF! A Champion Card is not a charge card, a debit card, or a payment card of any kind.



Registration for your 2011 CHAMPION CARD will begin October 1, 2011. You may register online, by phone at 800.818.6767, or in person at Concierge Services located between Gap and Theory on the south side. You will receive your CHAMPION CARD by November 25, 2011. Upon registration, please choose Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation as your charity of choice.


When it is time to pay for your merchandise, give the sales associate your CHAMPION CARD and any method of payment. The associate will swipe your CHAMPION CARD, punch in the pre-tax amount of your sale, and return the card to you. With this card, your charity donation is electronically calculated. Twenty-five percent of your pre-tax purchase will automatically be credited to the organization of your choice and you will be eligible to win a $1,000 Americana Manhasset shopping spree.


You will need your card at the time of purchase. If you do not have it, simply tell the sales person, who will call a concierge to bring you a card… and YES restaurants count! To see the list of participating stores, please click here!


HNF will also be hosting a benefit gathering on Thursday, December 1 to kick off the shopping weekend.  Details to come!


Happy Shopping!

Hot off the press

Some recent papers on Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease go to show that we are steadily and impressively peeling back the complexity of the biology even though it is a relatively common rare disease with several thousand publications on it.
