The Festivities Foundation first project is Pass on the Love – Celebrate. Donate. Support.




Since 1984, Festivities has been privileged to be part of milestone celebrations in the lives of our community. These celebrations whether social, corporate or charitable, hosted in love, are what inspired us to launch our foundation’s first project, “Pass on the  Love.”

“Pass on the Love” provides a platform to be part of a community that  shares the joys of milestones and traditions. Through donations of party accessories to our retail store, our goal is to  create a sustainable repurposing of items from happy occasions. The proceeds from these sales fund our mission of aiding programs that support survivors of domestic violence in their pursuit of safe and healthy homes.


The “Pass on the Love” project uses a unique resale business model, similar to that of a high-end consignment shop. We acquire donations of gently used items from celebrations such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, anniversary parties, and birthdays or items from private collections.

These items are sold as a curated collection at our retail store located in the SoNo Marketplace, and soon online at an Etsy store. Profits from the sale of these items are used to support local organizations that provide services to women and children who are survivors of domestic violence.


We look forward to welcoming you to our growing community of volunteers, donors and shoppers who make our work possible.

If you have items to donate to our store, or if you are interested in volunteering or learning more, please contact us at 203.847.7774, or visit us at

The Festivities Foundation, a non-profit organization, was founded by Rosinne Chlala, managing partner and event consultant at Festivities.
