Our hometown may be New York, but Barneys is proud to stand by the incredible city of Boston this week, with Tuesday marking the one-year anniversary of last year’s tragic events.
The stories of heroism, the demonstrations of resilience and the sweeping displays of community have inspired us all. Therefore it’s with much pride that we announce that tomorrow, Thursday, April 17, Barneys will donate 10 percent of all sales from its Copley flagship to One Fund Boston™. The organization was created by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino to support the victims of the bombings and their families. To date, the fund has raised $71.3 million, with contributions from nearly 200,000 individuals and businesses around the world.
This year’s race will undoubtedly be a poignant one, and we look forward to cheering on the runners and celebrating the indomitable spirit of the city on Monday.
Boston Strong indeed.
