NYGARD Renews Commitment to Philanthropic Endeavors

WINNIPEG, MB--(Marketwired - May 6, 2013) - NYGARD International has renewed the company commitment to its philanthropic and charitable platform, NYGARD For Life. Founder and Chairman Peter Nygard has put as much energy and devotion in to his philanthropic endeavors as he has his fashion empire, his charitable platform has accomplished much in the way of fundraising and supporting causes that are vital to the advancement of women the world over. As the program's top focus has and will continue to be the complete eradication of breast cancer, NYGARD For Life has now expanded its mission to also include a mandate that enhances all aspects of the lives of women.

"To reach this level of success and not use our vast resources to help advance women's causes and concerns would be unthinkable," says Founder and Chairman Peter Nygard. "Women are our customer base and the focus for all our products and fashion lines. It is because of women that we have attained such an amazing level of success and it is certainly our wish and our duty to give back to those who have given us so much." Sponsorships include an annual endowment fund to CancerCare. A highlight at a recent spring line debut fashion show in Winnipeg featured models who were also breast cancer victims and survivors.
