The host of NBC’s George to the Rescue, George Oliphant, and his crew headed to Farmingdale recently to help a teenage girl who has cerebral palsy and her family — with a home makeover.
The owner of Patchogue boutique Thred, Merav Shiloni, was invited along.
Shiloni surprised the 17-year-old, Cailin Stryska, with a closet full of designer outfits — all courtesy of Thred.
(Shiloni appears 14 minutes and 42 seconds into the show.)
“We really want to make Cailin feel special and feel whole,” she tells Oliphant, “what we call it is thread to toe. So she’s prepared every single day for whatever comes her way.”
“She was over the moon; it was so great,” Shiloni later told GreaterPatchogue.
She also said Oliphant was a lot of fun. “He’s really funny.”
The show aired last Saturday.
