Vineyard Vines Grand-opening at Chestnut Hill Mall Benefits the PMC

Come have a whale of a good time and celebrate the grand opening of Vineyard Vine’s newest store at Chestnut Hill Mall, while shopping for your favorite cause.

Ten percent of all sales will directly benefit the Pan-Mass Challenge and an additional 10% will be taken off the total purchase. Attendants will have the opportunity to rub elbows with Vineyard Vines co-founders, Shep and Ian Murray, while enjoying spirits, hors d’oeuvres and live music.

Tackle holiday shopping early, bulk up your fall wardrobe or come enjoy the festivities. All are welcome. The Whalecome Party will kick-off on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Chestnut Hill Mall, 199 Boylston Street, second level between Ann Taylor and Banana Republic Women.

Non-athlete rises to the occasion in honor of nephew

Debi Fossati, 42, of Carmel, NY, is riding in her first PMC in honor of her nephew Ty, 4, who is being treated for an aggressive brain tumor.

Fossati is a PMC “Weekend Warrior,” having never played sports in high school or college, but through extensive training for the August event, she’s uncovered physical and emotional strengths that lie within.

Fossati is riding to raise necessary funds to support her nephew, and adult and pediatric cancer research and patient care for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund.
