From the Register & Bee:
To the editor:
This year’s Rippe’s "Fashion Benefit for Breast Cancer" event raised $7,000 for local breast cancer patients.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to assist local breast cancer patients with the medical cost of their cancer-related prescriptions, travel, medical supplies and equipment and other special needs. Funds will be administered by the Danville Cancer Association.
The DCA is very grateful for all the generosity and support given to our organization from Ben Rippe and his associates over the past seven years in raising funds for area breast cancer patients in need. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed to this years’ Fashion Benefit.
Rippe’s has raised approximately $55,000 for our local breast cancer patients over the past seven years. Cancer touches so many lives, and we are truly blessed to have the overwhelming help and support of Rippe’s, its associates and everyone who contributed to help our area patients.
Please contact our agency for assistance by calling the Danville Cancer Association at (434) 791-3227.
Editor’s note: Crider is the executive director of the Danville Cancer Association.

Denice Thibodeau’s article describes how Rippe’s is supporting the Danville Cancer Association this year:
For several years, the store—which carries women’s clothing, shoes and furs—has held a big-ticket gala complete with champagne, a fashion show and a silent auction. This year, Rippe decided to continue supporting the nonprofit, but changed how that is being handled, mainly due to continuing issues with the economy....
Instead, Rippe’s created a small purse—in pink, the color that represents breast cancer awareness—with the Rippe’s label inside, and will be giving one to anyone who donates at least $40 to the Danville Cancer Association. Make a donation of at least $240, and the purse will have a $75 Rippe’s gift certificate in it, Rippe said.

Rippe’s is featured in the 2009–2010 Images Danville and Pittsylvania County magazine published by the Chamber of Commerce: “‘When you talk about the center of your city, and believe as that goes so goes the rest of the city, then you need to make downtown important,’ says Ben Rippe, the third-generation owner of Rippe’s, a clothing store that has been a downtown landmark for more than a century.” Read more...
