Velvet Ice Creams
Breast cancer is a disease that hit close to home at Velvet Ice Cream. The family matriarch and company treasurer, Tatla Dager, and her daughter Joanne, who is vice president of Velvet's food service division, are both breast cancer survivors. In honor of the two of them and all survivors, a portion of every Vanilla Lovers Trio specially-marked package goes to the Spielman Fund. Vanilla Lovers Trio Ice Cream cartons are in a pink package, trimmed in pink are adorned with the distinctive pink breast cancer ribbons. A portion of the sale of each carton of Vanilla Lovers Trio is donated to the Spielman Fund. For more details, visit Velvet's Web site.

Balloons sell for $2.99 each and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Spielman Fund.

Heads Up Bands 
October 2013
Heads Up Bands are a non-slip headband that will keep even the finest or curliest of hair in place. During October, you can purchase authentic Spielman Fund Headbands with 100% of proceeds from every $15 band sold going to the Spielman Fund (at participating stores). Heads Up Bands was born from the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer- when your hair grows back with all its crazy curl, these handmade bands were a necessity. Receiving compliments & inquires about these curl controlling bands it was clear that a negative could be turned into a positive! For more information, visit
