NATICK, MA…(July 16, 2007)… Natick Collection confirmed today that The Children’s Hospital League and the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism will serve as the charity partners for their grand opening gala on September 6, 2007.
“We applaud the missions of The Children’s Hospital League and The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism,” said Frank Lazorchak of Natick Collection. “It is an honor to have them as our partners for the Natick Collection Grand Opening Gala and to support such worthy causes.”
The invitation-only grand opening gala will take place as Natick Collection opens its doors for an exclusive preview, showcasing the property as the single most stylish shopping complex in New England.  All net proceeds from ticket sales and auction items will benefit The Children’s Hospital League and The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism.
“We are excited to be working with Natick Collection on what will surely be one of the most memorable opening events in the MetroWest community,” said Nancy Foster and Rachel Sieber, co-presidents of The Children’s Hospital League.  “We look forward to a truly glamorous evening.” 

“We are thrilled to partner with Natick Collection and to welcome them to the community,” said Lisa Borges, Executive Director of The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. “This is a tremendous fund-raising opportunity and we are extremely grateful to Natick Collection for making it possible.”

Natick Collection’s Grand Opening Gala will set the stage and tone for what is soon to become the premier style and fashion destination in New England. Steve Kemble, the award-winning, nationally renowned party planner and television personality, has designed an event with details never before seen in the MetroWest community.  The theme emanates from the Natick Collection sensibility – Hip, Luxurious, Inspired and Unique – with unrivaled entertainment, visual décor, music and cuisine.
