ApronTie creator Chef Jean Paul Labadie has announced a fundraiser partnership for the month of October, in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From today through October 31, ApronTie will offer two special designs of the chef’s apron tie with breast cancer awareness designs for $20, donating $10 from every purchase directly to NVCCF’s The Caring Place, a local charity caring for cancer patients of all ages and genders. ApronTie will also offer four Halloween themed designs for $15, donating $5 of each purchase toward The Caring Place.
“We work with a lot of women chefs and always conscious of women’s health issues, cancer in particular,” says Jean-Paul. “In fact, I lost my own sister Marie Tere to cancer. So it was important for us to do something this month to help raise awareness in our community, and hopefully some funds as well.”
ApronTie is the unique creation of Chef Jean-Paul Labadie, a veteran of the Las Vegas Strip who saw a need to resolve some of the fatigue and comfort problems of chefs on their feet for long hours. The ApronTie has already found many fans among the culinary and bar community.
