Holt Renfrew, Sir Elton John, David Furnish and NEST Fragrances have partnered to create a unique limited edition candle to benefit the life-saving work of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. To celebrate the launch, Holt Renfrew will be hosting Sir Elton John and David Furnish for a public appearance at the Bloor Street location on Saturday, September 8th, 2012.
The scented candles, created exclusively for Holt Renfrew, are available in two scents – Jardin de Fleurs, a floral blend, and L’Orangerie, a citrus-based fragrance – the three-wick candles are packaged in white or orange glass vessels. A portion of proceeds from sales of the $50 candles will support the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and Holt Renfrew’s goal is to raise $100,000 for the life-saving work of the Foundation, which is observing its 20th anniversary this year. Since its inception in 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised more than $275 million for HIV prevention, stigma reduction, treatment, care and service programs in 55 countries worldwide. The candles will be available through holtrenfrew.com on August 24 and in Holt Renfrew stores across Canada on September 8.
Sir Elton John and David Furnish will have a busy schedule when they arrive in Toronto, devoting their time here with a series of events to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, including the revival of the Fashion Cares Gala, happening on September 9th at the Sony Centre.
