RECORD SALES OF THE WORLD’S BRIGHTEST CANDLE HELPS PARTYLITE EXCEED FUNDRAISER GOAL FOR AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
PartyLite, headquartered in Plymouth, Mass., is celebrating both the success of its October nationwide fundraising effort benefitting the American Cancer Society and record-breaking sales of a new jar candle that helped make it possible.
The global leader in direct sales of candles, candle accessories and other home fragrance products, PartyLite engages Customers, employees and independent Consultants year-round in fundraising efforts to benefit the charity. In October, a special effort benefitting the Society involved a new PartyLite product, Strawberry Rhubarb GloLite by PartyLite® Jar Candles.
According to Worldwide President Rob Goergen, one dollar from the sale of each of these candles sold in the United States is donated year-round to the Society. In October, which was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all donations from U.S. sales of the candle, along with other PartyLite “Pink Month” efforts, raised $84,125 and was earmarked for the Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Goergen says these new and innovative handcrafted jar candles – which glow from top to bottom when lit – broke all sales records for jar candle sales in PartyLite’s history.
“Our 40 years of excellence in candle-making led to the creation of GloLite by PartyLite Jar Candles, now known as The World’s Brightest Candle™,” says Goergen. “In the 13 weeks of sales since their introduction, more than 220,000 GloLite by PartyLite Jar Candles were sold worldwide, making them our most successful jar candles ever!”
A check for the October donation was presented to Cara Bauer, Director of Distinguished Giving for the American Cancer Society’s New England Division, during a celebration at the PartyLite Worldwide Headquarters in Plymouth.
In the last 15 years, the PartyLite family of Customers, employees and independent Consultants has given nearly $14 million to the Society for the fight against cancer.
