COLUMBUS, Neb. -- Boutiques; a specialized type of retail for a niche market with specialized products and more personal customer service. But who would have thought you would find one at a hospital? 

“We have been working with Boutique 29eleven for three years now,” said Angie Ramaekers, Director of Volunteer and Guest Services. “This is our fifth Boutique29eleven Fundraiser Event and we enjoy having them.”

Boutique 29eleven set up shop on Monday at the Columbus Community Hospital. They offered a wide variety of women's clothing and accessories for all of the doctors, nurses and staff. 

“We love it, this is the fifth time now,” said Carrie Kaban, boutique co-owner. “We love being a part of the Columbus Community Hospital. They have been gracious and kind to invite us back. Now we get to see people we see every time. We’ve gotten to know a lot of the shoppers and staff and we just love to bring our boutique, show our beautiful clothing but also contribute to a great cause.”

But this isn’t just your average Boutique shop, in fact it is for something much bigger. 

“This event is a fundraiser where we have a vendor that comes in and this time it is Boutique 29eleven,” Ramaekers said. “They are a Nebraska-based company.”

Most of the proceeds will be donated to the Oncology Nurse Navigation Program, a program that walks in support of cancer patients. 

“A percentage of the sales comes back here to the hospital that we use to purchase medical equipment or supplies," Ramaekers said.

For Boutique 29eleven, it goes beyond just selling merchandise, but giving back to the community. 

“Everybody is touched by cancer in some way throughout the course of their life whether it’s personally or knowing someone,” Ramaekers said. We are just really grateful that we can support people who are going through a really scary time.” 

The connections made keeps them coming back.

“I always tell people that if we just wanted to make money selling clothing we would just be an online boutique," said Tiffany Curry, co-owner. “We want to give back and we want people to come into the stores and have a good experience shopping with us. It’s a face to face interaction that you don’t get very much of in today’s world.”

The boutique supports local medicine and Nebraska communities.
