If you're looking for a little retail therapy this week, head to UNION at Biltmore Fashion Park on Friday, September 6, when your shopping will support a good cause.
A few weeks ago, beloved Phoenix food community member Lisa Giungo was diagnosed with lung cancer. She's currently undergoing treatment and is unable to work. That's why her friends have banded together and organized a fundraiser to help out with her living expenses.
