Your Clothes, Your Color, Your Cause

What do you get when you take 100 percent American-made clothing and pair it with 25 percent of the purchase price going directly to the consumer’s (not the company’s) favorite cause? You get a shopping win-win in the form of a company called Beacon & Brewster.
Eileen Sherman, a New England native who works out of her office/studio in Marina Bay, Quincy, has always been interested in fundraising. She competed in sporting events to raise money for causes that were close to her heart. As more and more causes became associated with certain colors, she began to form an idea. Her idea was to create a quality line of clothing with colors that represented well-known causes, and have proceeds from the sale of that clothing go directly to the charitable cause.
The idea began with well-fitting polo shirts and T-shirts, but Sherman has plans for the road ahead.
“I’m working on expanding my line (I have dresses coming out in May) and building my online presence,” Sherman says.  “When the dresses are ready for sale, I plan on working with boutiques in the MA/New England area to host trunk shows that will highlight my line and introduce people to the charity aspect of beacon & brewster.”
