The Women’s Fund of Long Island sure did help us spread the word that The Container Store was “Now Open” at The Gallery at Westbury Plaza and as a result, we donated $25,000 to their organization as part of our pledge to them of 10% of Grand Opening Weekend sales! Thousands of Long Islanders got organized and supported their community at the same time. Needless to say, Long Island was READY for The Container Store! The weekend had a tremendous Air of Excitement (one of our Foundation Principles), complete with our Long Island SuperFan, balloons and prizes every hour on the hour including two $1,000 elfa Space Makeovers!
Stacey Scarpone, Executive Director of the Women’s Fund said, “All of us at the Women’s Fund of Long Island are so pleased with our amazing Grand Opening Weekend partnership with The Container Store. Everyone that we have met and had the pleasure of working with has been extremely helpful and showed incredible enthusiasm and interest in supporting the Women’s Fund. And of course, we are THRILLED to hear that The Container Store will be donating $25,000 to the Women’s Fund of Long Island! What a weekend! What a great partnership! Thank you Container Store!”
