Fortunoff Mattress, local dignitaries, members of the Westbury/Carle Place Chamber of Commerce and representatives of United Way of Long Island officially cut the ribbon for the opening of Fortunoff Mattress’ first Long Island showroom in Carle Place on Aug. 7. In celebration of the showroom’s opening, through Aug. 16, 10 percent of sales at Fortunoff Mattress will be donated to United Way of Long Island, whose mission is to help people 24 hours a day whenever and wherever help is needed by providing concrete solutions to critical community problems—with tangible results directly impacting individuals and families throughout every municipality in the county.

“The partnership between United Way of Long Island and Fortunoff Mattress is perfectly aligned with our mission, and that is understanding the importance of healthy habits, including a good night’s sleep, and how it can affect a person’s quality of life,” said Nina Fenton, Chief Development Officer at United Way of Long Island. “We are grateful to Fortunoff Mattress for choosing our organization to receive a percent of proceeds during their new showroom’s opening week in Carle Place and Huntington, allowing us to continually work to improve the health of our neighbors.”
