Lanphier Day Spa Donates to Tommy Fund
Dee Stefanou, assistant manager at the Lanphier Day Spa, hands a check to Frank Ciarleglio from the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts's Help a Child Initiative to be donated to the Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer. The Lanphier Day Spa, located at 8 Devine Street in North Haven, recently held an Evening at the Spa fundraiser, netting more than $2,500 for the Tommy Fund, which is based out of Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital. The spa also collected 117 arts and craft kits and toys for the children undergoing their cancer treatments. A number of people and businesses supported the event, including the Youth Activity Center at Healthtrax, which provided babysitting; Eli's on Whitney, Whitney Donuts, DiSorbo's Bakery, Hindingers Farm, Mount Carmel Wine and Liquor, and Maria Santos, all of which provided food and beverages; and the Lanphier Day Spa, Academy of Kempo, Mark Puglise Jewelers, Chico's, White House Black Market, J.P. Dempsey's, Flirt Boutique, Eli's Brick Oven Pizza, Marjolaine Fine Pastries, DiMatteo's Pizza, Taste Restaurant and Lounge, and J. Roo's, all of which donated raffle prizes.
