Local female entrepreneurs Pam Kubbins of Wellesley and Luanne Perrera of Medfield are teaming up to host a fun and festive day of shopping on Nov. 6 to benefit Women of Means, an organization providing free medical care to women in need.
The event will take place noon to 8 p.m. at the Varier Showroom, 460 Hillside Ave., Needham.
Kubbins, owner of Pam’s Pashminas and Exotic Scarves, and Perrera, owner of Lufina Wovens wanted to team up by selling their wares and donating a portion of the proceeds to the Wellesley based charity.
Women of Means was founded in 1999 by Roseanna H. Means, MD to ”improve the lives of women who are homeless or marginally housed through quality healthcare, education and advocacy.” Today a team of over 20 volunteers and paid medical professionals work to improve immediate access to healthcare for the Commonwealth’s poorest women and children.
Shop for a Cause will feature beautiful home and fashion textiles from both Lufina Wovens and Pam’s Pashminas. Pam’s Pashmina’s and Exotic Scarves is a collection of scarves and shawls from around the world including the United States, Turkey, India, China, Argentina, Ukraine, Egypt, Nepal and Liberia. Kubbins travels the globe seeking exquisite craftsmen and women and exotic fabrics resulting in gorgeous and unique pieces at affordable prices.
Lufina Wovens is the creation of husband and wife team, Luanne and Mike Perrera, who share a passion for all things beautifully made and simply luxurious. As a result, they have curated a collection of some of the finest home textiles from around the world. Shop for a Cause marks the launch of this brand new business venture.
Light refreshments will be served at the event. Admission is free. There is also free parking on the premises.
