Azzur Group Announces “Scientees,” A Charity-Based Science T-shirt Company

Willow Grove, PA, Oct. 02, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Azzur Group, a leading private equity firm, announces its new charity-based venture Scientees. All profits from the science-themed graphic t-shirt company will go to support the Spread the Magic Foundation, a non-profit corporation that performs magic in hospital settings to raise money for pediatric cancer patients.

“Our goal is to support organizations that work to improve the lives of others,” says Mark O’Donnell, Managing Partner of Azzur Group. “Scientees is based on a combination of Azzur Group’s core principles which include to put others first, have the courage to take action, take personal responsibility and, most importantly, to have fun.”

The Scientees t-shirts feature humorous catch phrases and a variety of pharmaceutical and life sciences graphic prints, including a paramecium, volvox and amoeba. They are available in small, medium, large, x-large, and 2x-large sizes. The tees are printed on 100% combed and ringspun cotton and cotton/poly blend knits in a unisex fit for men and women.

All of the proceeds from Scientees are used to support the Spread the Magic Foundation. The organization helps lift the spirits of children with cancer who are hospital-bound through magic and illusionist performances.

“Magic gives people hope. It allows people to believe that they can make the impossible possible, especially for young children battling cancer,” says Chad Juros, international magician and founder of Spread the Magic Foundation. “I am very thankful to partner with Scientees in raising money for the Spread the Magic Foundation.”

Juros, a leukemia survivor, learned his magic craft through hours of practice between his treatments and surgery from his father. Chad Juros recently appeared on ABC’s morning television show, Good Morning America (GMA), for his work performing magic at hospitals across the country and raising money for pediatric cancer patients.
