MIRACLE ON MADISON: Retailers rarely work together to generate business. But on Saturday, 70 shops on Madison Avenue from 57th to 86th Streets will coordinate on a common cause: benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s pediatric programs.
They’re participating in the “Miracle on Madison” fund-raiser for The Society, a volunteer-led organization that raises funds and awareness for cancer research and treatment and assists in the well-being of patients. The annual event, in its 32nd year, is organized by the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District. The 70 stores participating will donate 20 percent of the day’s sales to The Society.
Watch for the “caring canines” therapy dogs from Memorial Sloan Kettering and Victorian costumed carolers strolling up and down Madison Avenue, starting at 10 a.m.
