Portion of Sales Goes to EWGA Foundation's 'Women On Par®' Scholarship Fund
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, August 6, 2011 – Collé Products has become a new member benefits provider for the EWGA (Executive Women's Golf Association) offering special pricing on its luxury jewelry cleaning mousse, SHINE by Collé. A portion of the company's sales is donated to the EWGA Foundation's 'Women On Par®' Scholarship Fund that helps non-traditional female students, women ages 30 or older, to achieve their educational goals.
"As a woman-owned business, I have been thrilled with the level of support I have gotten from EWGA," says Thadine Clifton, founder and CEO of Collé Products. "They have gone above and beyond to provide personal encouragement, marketing collaboration, and networking opportunities for my business initiatives. EWGA is a first-class organization and I am proud to be a sponsor of such a dynamic group.
SHINE by Collé was created to provide a safe and convenient way to clean jewelry in an environmentally sustainable manner. All materials are non-toxic and all packaging is 100% recyclable. SHINE is the exclusive jewelry cleaner of the EWGA and NJ Fashion Week, and is a sponsor of the LPGA. See www.colleproducts.com
"SHINE by Collé is an excellent, eco-friendly product that every woman can appreciate," says Pam Swensen, CEO of the EWGA. "With a portion of sales benefiting our 'Women On Par®' Scholarship Fund, members can enjoy savings on an outstanding jewelry cleaner and help other women succeed as well."
The EWGA Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization formed and supported by the Executive Women's Golf Association. Its mission is to create and fund education and leadership programs for women of all ages. In addition to the 'Women On Par®' scholarship program, other initiatives include the development of a golf education curriculum, Drive for Dreams outreach program to 'give the gift of golf' and an annual LPGA-USGA Girls Golf charity event.
As the owner of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey-based Collé Corporation, Thadine has twenty-five years' experience in the specialty cleaning business, assisting many companies including those in the cosmetics and personal care industry. She founded Collé Products and created SHINE by Collé to overcome her personal frustration with the harsh chemical cleaners and the toothbrush method of cleaning her own jewelry. The result is the first of its kind green product in completely sustainable packaging – a luxury cleaning mousse that is safe for all types of jewelry. The company gives back by donating a percentage of SHINE proceeds to Susan G. Komen North Jersey and other causes such as the 'Women On Par®' scholarship program.
Since its founding in 1991 as the Executive Women's Golf Association, the EWGA has touched the lives of more than 100,000 women connecting them to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and fun. This tax-exempt association delivers a wide range of golf, social and networking activities for both new and experienced golfers. The EWGA is headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
