Fancy Pants Cafe Owners Honour Daughter With Fundraiser

Coffees for MarigoldA night no parent wants to experience has inspired a fundraiser in memory of a local baby girl.

38-week pregnant Michelle Engel & husband Ulo Greer (owners of Fancy Pants Café) knew something was wrong when they arrived in the Emergency Department at South Shore Regional Hospital in November 2017. An emergency birth led to the arrival of a baby girl named Marigold who, despite the Maternal/Child team’s best efforts, passed away from complications soon after.

While it was a horrible experience to go through, Michelle & Ulo never forgot the kindness and compassion the doctors and nurses at South Shore Regional Hospital showed them.

Which is why, from November 22nd to December 8th, Fancy Pants Café will be holding Coffees for Marigold; $1 from every specialty coffee sold at Fancy Pants Café will be donated to the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore in support of the Maternal Child Unit at South Shore Regional.

There will also be marigold pins available by donation. Any extra donations customers want to make will result in extra stamps on their coffee cards.

The launch date of the fundraiser coincides with Marigold’s birthday and the birthday of the café so, naturally, there will be cupcakes to honour the day.

For more information, please check out the Fancy Pants Café’s Facebook page.
