Sip, Nibble and Shop for a Cause: Mixellaneous Boutique’s
“Girls Night Out” Benefits Breast and Gynecological Cancer Research and Care at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper

Boutique to donate 15 percent of all purchases to Cooper’s Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Fund which supports research and supportive services for cancer patients

CAMDEN, N.J. Mixellaneous boutique and mini-department store in Marlton will host a Sip, Nibble and Shop event at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 to benefit breast and gynecological cancer research and care at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. Fifteen percent of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Cooper Foundation’s Pink Roses and Teal Magnolias Fund.

The evening also serves to build awareness and excitement in the community for the Cooper Foundation’s upcoming Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Brunch.

“Support for Pink Roses Teal Magnolias continues to grow across the region,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation, the philanthropic, community outreach and community development arm of Cooper University Health Care. “We are grateful to our community partners, Mixellaneous owner, Michelle Stander and our hosts for the evening, Josephine McGinniss and Cyndy McCormick, a co-chair and a host at our Pink Roses Teal Magnolias Brunch, respectively, for joining in the fight against breast and gynecologic cancer and for helping to ensure patients have access to the world-class cancer care MD Anderson Cooper delivers.”

Over six years, the Foundation has raised more than $3 million dollars for the Pink and Teal Fund, which supports research, complementary medicine, support services, survivorship programs and Cooper’s patient-in-need fund which assists patients in financial distress with transportation, child care, prescription co-pays and other immediate needs at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

“As a cancer survivor who received my care at Cooper, this is my way of giving back and not forgetting the journey of those who are currently battling the disease,” said McGinniss, a 3 ½ year cancer survivor.

The event will include music, cocktails, food, a designer trunk show and giveaways, unique gifts and fashion.

The boutique will also donate 15 percent of any purchases in which the buyer mentions “Cooper” between now and Oct. 7th.

About The Cooper Foundation/Cooper University Health Care
The Cooper Foundation serves as the philanthropic, community outreach and community development arm of Cooper University Health Care, one of the largest health systems in southern New Jersey with over 100 outpatient offices and its flagship, Cooper University Hospital located in Camden, N.J. Cooper University Hospital is the premier university hospital serving South Jersey and the Delaware Valley. Cooper has reaffirmed its role as a leader in medical education and research with the opening of Cooper Medical School of Rowan University in 2012, the first four-year allopathic medical school in South Jersey. Cooper is renowned for signature programs in cardiology, cancer, critical care, pediatrics, trauma, orthopaedics and neurosciences. Cooper is also home to the only state designated Children’s Hospital in South Jersey—the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper. Over the last decade, Cooper has transformed its Camden City neighborhood into the Cooper Health Sciences Campus. In October 2013, the new MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, a freestanding cancer center for comprehensive care, opened on the Health Sciences Campus.

About MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper
In September 2013, Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, partnered to create MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. Since U.S. News & World Report began its annual “Best Hospitals” survey in 1990, MD Anderson has consistently been named one of the top two cancer hospitals in the nation, receiving the top position nine times in the last 10 years. This partnership is a full clinical integration of the MD Anderson program at Cooper with the program in Houston. MD Anderson Cooper physicians adhere to the same philosophy, processes and guidelines set by MD Anderson in Houston, Texas, and patients receive the same proven practice standards and treatment plans provided at MD Anderson. Today at MD Anderson Cooper, patients have access to more clinical trials for more types of cancer than ever before, as well as a full range of supportive care services. Advanced, comprehensive cancer services are provided at our Camden, Voorhees and Willingboro locations. The Cooper Digestive Health Institute is an accredited MD Anderson Cooper location for innovative gastrointestinal cancer prevention, detection and treatment services. Additional cancer clinical services are provided at locations throughout South Jersey.
