The Eight and Forty/La Boutique Des Huits et Quarante Femmes, a Nassau County-based non-profit organization, is comprised of women whose primary goal is to raise money for organizations or projects that treat or support children with respiratory and lung diseases.

Representatives from one local salon visited Winthrop recently to make a donation of $1,000 to the Pulmonary Division of Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics.

"Each year our Salon Chapter picks a project within our local geographic area that we can support," said Greta Valdes, President of La Boutique Des Huits et Quarante Femmes, Salon #24. "We know that Winthrop has an outstanding Pediatrics Department. We are very pleased and honored that we could make a difference and help support such a great institution."
