Two local small businesses are teaming up with the most unique Valentine’s Day gifts in the region. Steven Singer Jewelers returns for Valentine’s with their signature 24 kt. gold-dipped roses, including a new color with Emerald City Green. Singer is open at their location at 739 Walnut with special Valentine’s Weekend hours. SliCE is also taking orders and delivering heart-shaped pizza grams now through Valentine’s Day in Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Center City, South Philly, University City and Washington Township. Together, the two have joined forces and Singer is donating part of the proceeds from Valentine’s gold-dipped rose sales to support SliCE and feed over 750 health heroes and frontline staff heart-shaped pizzas this week at both Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Pennsylvania Hospital. On Valentine’s Day itself the two will again team up and three lucky heart gram recipients will find a special gold-dipped rose with their heart-shaped pizza.
Singer’s most popular and well-known item across the city, region and country is their 24 karat gold and platinum dipped roses – Singer’s best selling and most popular products. Singer specifically selected this item to help give back as it is a signature seller that everyone has come to associate him and his company with. The roses are also a very relatable symbol we can all rally around and come together as a community. For many families, there are generations of family members who have been collecting the roses and who are passing them down to their children and grandchildren. Each rose is a one-of-a-kind and comes with a lifetime guarantee. They come in a variety of exclusive colors starting at just $59 and are available here.
Steven Singer Jewelers is donating a portion of proceeds from Valentine’s sales of his famous 24 karat gold and platinum dipped roses to thank frontline essential hospital workers and first responders – and at the same time support local, independent restaurants during a crisis for their industry. Valentines leading to Mother’s Day is one of Singers’ biggest times of year for the gold-dipped roses – and he wanted to again thank them as they continue to battle COVID 19. This is a win-win to help hospital employees and a way to help SliCE as they work hard to stay in business during the pandemic.
For Singer, the 24kt gold-dipped roses are the number of gifts for Valentine’s Day. Steven’s gold dipped roses are a real rose, dipped in real gold that lasts a lifetime. Singer is also presenting special gold 24 kt. gold-dipped roses to select employees of each hospital for their exceptional service to the community during the drop-offs. Each hospital has selected the employees to be honored.
For owner Steven Singer, this is a win-win that thanks those tirelessly working to treat Coronavirus patients, and to support local restaurants in need of a boost at a time of great crisis for the restaurant industry. For this special delivery, there is extra meaning as Singer recently underwent open heart surgery and several trips/stays in local hospitals. He wanted to bring some thanks to the employees working so hard and putting their own lives at risk. While he was in the hospital several times, he left the ICU and is recovering, but many COVID and other patients won’t this holiday.
“My heart breaks for the world! It breaks for those who have lost loved ones, those who are ill, small businesses and independent restaurants and everyone eﬀected by this ugly virus, and that is everyone,” says Steven Singer. “We want to be there to support our local community now and long-term. These hospital workers put themselves at risk each and every day, and have to deal with things that are unimaginable to the rest of us. On this unique holiday, as the world continues to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic we wanted to support them and say thanks – and let them know we are all with them.”
Singer with local restaurants has fed thousands of meals in Philadelphia, Detroit and Indianapolis to hospitals including Pennsylvania Hospital, Penn Presbyterian, Temple University Hospital, and Jeﬀerson. Restaurant partners Singer has tapped so far have included Dim Sum House by Jane G’s Rittenhouse, El Fuego, Bazbeaux Pizza, Milk Boy, Del Rossi Cheesesteaks, New Wave Cafe, Manny’s Deli, Bucharest Grill, Rybread, Sabrina’s Cafe and many others.
