Outlast Teams Up With "Menopause the Musical"


Outlast Technologies and Menopause the Musical

Form Partnership During Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month


September 9, 2008 - Outlast Technologies, the pioneer in phase change technology for bedding and sleepwear, and Menopause The Musical Out Loud Tour: Breaking the Silence of Ovarian Cancer, announce the launch of a new partnership for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.


In honor of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month this September, Outlast Technologies and Menopause The Musical Out Loud Tour are teaming up to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. For the month of September, Outlast will be donating a percentage of sales to ovarian cancer research. Bedding products made with Outlast technology are uniquely engineered to help mitigate symptoms associated with menopause, reducing the severity of hot flashes and night sweats for a better night's sleep.


"We're excited to team up with 'Menopause The Musical'", says Guy Eckert, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Outlast. This partnership gives us a chance to do something positive for the community, while giving women the opportunity to experience the unique performance of Outlast bedding products. By 2015, half of the women in the US will be experiencing symptoms associated with menopause and Outlast is the only fabric technology able to provide them with a solution.


Joanne Grant, Vice President of Production for TOC Productions, Inc. commented, "'Menopause The Musical' encourages a healthy dialogue about issues of aging and women's health and provides a unique opportunity to raise awareness with female audiences. We really do hope to break the silence on the issues of ovarian cancer, and we're excited that Outlast will be supporting those efforts."



Products with Outlast's temperature regulating technology help reduce the severity of hot flashes and night sweats, for a better night's sleep. In bedding and sleepwear, Outlast products are designed to balance a sleeper's skin temperature, allowing her to remain comfortable during the night. Unlike traditional fabric and insulation that trap heat, products with patented Outlast Thermocules actually absorb excess body heat when one becomes too warm. This technology has been incorporated into a variety of sleeping products such as mattresses, mattress pads, pillows and sleepwear from well-known brands like Select Comfort, HoMedics, Sealy, Restonic, and Dillard's. All products made with Outlast  technology are recommended for women suffering from hot flashes and night sweats or anyone with sleep disturbances.



Since March 2001, the hilarious show Menopause The Musical has entertained and inspired women worldwide. The work of writer Jeanie Linders, Menopause The Musical is a 90-minute production which includes 25 re-lyricized tunes from the '60s and '70s and culminates with a salute to women who are going through The Change. Menopause The Musical Out Loud Tour: Breaking the Silence of Ovarian Cancer! joyfully and hilariously parodies over two dozen of the classic "baby boomer" songs of the '60s and '70s, among them, "I Heard It Through the Grapevine, You No Longer See 39" and the disco-flavored "Stayin' Awake Stayin' Awake"


Presented by the Jeanie C. Linders Fund, the 2008-2009 season of Menopause The Musical Out Loud Tour kicks off in Greenville, SC, on September 5, 2008, to raise funds for awareness and education for national and local Ovarian Cancer support groups.
