Just over a decade ago, Kendra Scott launched her jewelry collection with only $500. Today, her brand is a multimillion-dollar global sensation being represented in major retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales plus 1,000+ specialty boutiques worldwide. The Kendra Scott flagship and design studio headquarters is located in Austin, Texas where each new piece is meticulously designed and crafted. The Kendra Scott brand has become a household fashion name to women around the world and even famous celebrities like Sofia Vergara, Eva Longoria, Hilary Duff and Brooklyn Decker love her unique and bold designs.
Even as her brand continues to grow, the company’s founding philosophies of “Family, Fashion & Philanthropy” still hold true. As philanthropy continues to be a driving force for this fashion-forward company, we were thrilled when we were asked to be a part of her latest store grand opening at the Streets of Southpoint in Durham, NC. Kendra Scott teamed up with the Susan G Komen foundation for an afternoon of fun, food, and entertainment.
We wanted to share a few of our favorite pictures with you from this lovely afternoon. To see the entire gallery, click here to visit us on Pinterest.
The Susan G. Komen organization is a global movement that is dedicated to ending breast cancer. Back in 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan Komen, that she would do everything she could to stop breast cancer forever. In 1982 the Susan G. Komen organization was formed. With a strong grass-roots effort, what began as a shoebox full of potential donor names and $200, has grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for breast cancer research and more.
Since 1990, the efforts of the Susan G. Komen foundation have helped reduce death rates from breast cancer by 34 percent as well as improve five-year relative survival rates for early stage cancers from 74 to 99 percent. To date, the foundation has invested more than $2.6 billion in research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries worldwide.
One of the reasons that this organization is so special is that the Susan G. Komen foundation is the ONLY group that addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts like research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives to make the biggest impact against breast cancer.
Throughout this beautiful store, guests were treated with custom made cookies from a local bakery to celebrate the fundraiser.
We also developed a signature cocktail made from fresh peaches, strawberries, and raspberries mixed with champagne. It was a hit on such a warm afternoon.
The menu for the day was light and fun. We served guests a fancy tray of imported and domestic cheeses garnished with fresh fruit and paired with gourmet crackers. Not pictured was pimento cheese as well as cucumber finger sandwiches.
