Valentine’s Day bargains while helping those in need

MARQUETTE — If you’re looking to get your Valentine’s Day shopping done and would like to give back to those in need in the area, look no further. Hospitality Gifts located inside of UP Health System – Marquette is holding a special Valentine’s Day Sale.

Everything from purses and jewelry to toys and games found in the lobby only costs $5.99. Patrons who venture into the Hospitality Gifts shop can enjoy free food tasting from Joe’s Cakes between 11-2.

“People are going to be shopping here at the gift shop and they’re going to be going to the Coffee For A Cause anyway,” said HHUP CEO Mary Tavernini–Dowling, “so we thought: let’s add a little bit of fun, a little bit of excitement, put a nice sale on and then, thank goodness for our wonderful volunteers and pretty amazing staff that we have that will help us to pull things like this off.”

Every day of the week all of the proceeds from Hospitality Gifts and the coffee shop benefit both Beacon House, the hospitality rooms, and the wig salon for cancer patients. If you were unable to attend today, you still have one more chance for the Valentine’s Sale tomorrow from 9-5.
