STAMFORD, Conn. -- After 40 years in New York City, Chic Jack’s Vintage Clothing Store launched a new location in Stamford with a cause -- to support local kids in need of summer camp scholarships.
A total of 20 percent of the proceeds from the launch event were donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford, with $2,400 raised in total to support 24 weeks of summer camp.
A total of $2,000 was raised with a Giving Tree, which allowed shoppers to select and support individual children by name.
Nearly 100 people came out to support Chic Jack’s cause at the opening and the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford. This effort supported 100 local kids in need of summer camp scholarships this year.
The Boys & Girls Club of Stamford camp allows children to attend one week for $100, half the summer for $300 and the entire summer for $600.
“Fashion is cyclical,” said Mona Markus, co-owner of Chic Jack’s. “Open up any high-fashion magazine or retail catalog and you will see current fashions influenced by the '50s to the '90s – from polka dots to Pucci prints, vintage florals to nautical stripes.”
“Spring dresses and blouses, high-waisted pants, cut-off denim shorts and vintage T-shirts, we have it all," she said.
“We adapt to each client and want everyone loving how they look in our clothes, so we work with each person to match style and lifestyle," she said.
