Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

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.

Shops participating include Frances Vintage, For the People, Royal Coffee, Trattoria Bianco, Queen Creek Olive Mill, Citrine Natural Beauty Bar, Paris Envy, Lilly, White House Flowers, and British Bicycle Company.

Additionally, $20 tickets will be sold for a raffle to win various prizes, including a vintage Pashley "Poppy" Bicycle and gift cards from such businesses as Pizzeria Bianco, Juice 365, The Parlor, Cibo, Hillside Cafe, Stinkweeds, and some UNION shops.

If you can't make it out but would still like to help, you can make a donation or buy a raffle ticket via francesvintage.wix.com/lisag.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
