Aarti Is All In For The Cure

Aarti Khosla is one of my — and Westport’s — favorite people.

The owner of Le Rouge — the fantastic handmade chocolate shop on Main Street, just past Avery Place — is always the first to donate funds (or treats) for any good cause.

Today she went one step further.

As part of her mission to help the St. Baldrick Foundation raise money for childhood cancer research, she set a personal goal of $5,500.

Friends, family and customers pledged $6,783.

So today, Aarti sat down to fulfill her side of the deal.

… during …

… and after the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser, at the Westport Weston Family YMCA.

She’s proud to do her part to help kids who are battling severe illnesses.

Now it’s your turn.

You can still donate to Aarti’s page. Just click here.

Then have some of her chocolates. They — and the knowledge of doing good — will make you feel great!

  1. Awesome! Excellent effort. Does the hair get donated?

    • Thank you Tyler for you kind words, I am just trying to do what feels right. No the hair from this event does not get donated as this is more symbolic in nature and the requirements for using the hair to make wigs are very stringent. Locks of love is the charity where you donate hair for reuse.

  2. Aarti, you are even more beautiful now, from head to toe, and inside and out. Thanks for posting, Dan.

    AArti is a treasure – Her chocolate pocket books are a favorite of mine. Of course I support her efforts.
