Kendra Scott is known for hosting all types of sip-and-shop parties that support North Texas nonprofits. While enjoying adult beverages and chatting, the guests have the opportunity to buy goodies with a portion of the purchases going to the charity du jour.
Last May the Kendra Scott team stepped out of their jewelry boutiques and headed to Children’s Health Dallas with “more than 130 jewelry via their Kendra Cares Mobile Color Bar program and Mother’s Day gift baskets” for the young patients and their moms.
One of the first patients to experience the Kendra Care Mobile Color Bar was 16-year-old Diweni, who had just been diagnosed with cancer that day. The unexpected gifts made the day a little less daunting for the daughter and mother. While some might have thought it to be a piece of jewelry, others might have considered it as a medal for a young warrior in the battle against cancer.
Over the next four months, Diweni underwent her treatments at Children’s Health. It was in September that she and her mom once again participated in Kendra Cares Mobile Color Bar along with 50 other patients and their “plus one” (aka mom).
But battle against pediatric cancer requires more than providing a little dazzle for a child and Kendra Scott knows it and is once again stepping up to help provide the funds. On Monday, April 30, from 5 to 8 p.m. The West Village location will host the 2nd Annual Kendra Gives Back Shopping Event with 20% of the proceeds benefiting the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Health.
With Mother’s Day, graduations and weddings just around the corner, why not get it all done on Monday? And while you’re at it, pick something up for yourself. You deserve it.
