“Shop ’til You Drop is a fund raiser for Lucia’s Angels and the Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital,” explained Aimee Dallob of Felt Fantastic Knits.
The one day only holiday shopping extravaganza that is organized by Vicki Durand of Vicki Knits will take place on Saturday, November 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is dedicated to “early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and an improved quality of life,” while Lucia’s Angels is committed to “helping women and families on Eastern Long Island with late-stage women’s cancers including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and uterine cancer.”
“We’re thankful to all of the local vendors that are volunteering their time and services to help raise funds for women living with cancer on the East End,” shared Susie Roden, President, Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, and Stacy Quarty, Vice President, Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and President, Lucia’s Angels. “We’re looking forward to this annual event and hope that everyone who comes out finds some great gifts for their loved ones, and themselves!”
