I love shopping. I love jewelry. And when you get to shop, while sipping champagne, and have 20 percent of the proceeds go to a charity, you can feel good about the money and time spent trying to decide which glittery pair of earrings to purchase.
Last night Alexis and I co-hosted our first Bitches Who Brunch event with Kendra Scott. It was an absolute delight to be part of—and a milestone for us. The Bitches Who Brunch team in D.C. had a great event with Kendra Scott a couple of months ago, and the Chicago team knew partnering with Kendra Scott would be the perfect way for the Bitches to give back this holiday season.
Kendra Scott, a beautiful jewelry line designed and headquartered in Austin, has a strong philanthropic focus and routinely hosts events that give back to local and national organizations. And with 37 stores and local retailers, Kendra Scott gives back quite a bit.
For this event, we partnered together with Kendra Scott to raise money for Bright Pink—a national non-profit organization that is focused on education, prevention, and early detection for women’s diseases, such as breast cancer and ovarian cancer. We love Bright Pink and were happy to support a cause that is so important for women, especially around our age; they truly help save lives!
Many of our friends and colleagues attended and shopped for themselves and others for the holiday season. By the end of the night, we had raised quite a bit of money for Bright Pink! Thank you to all of you who came out, shopped, and supported us.
For those of you who missed the party, there is still time before the holidays to pick up some sparkly gifts from Kendra Scott! So, visit Kendra Scott in the 900 North Michigan Ave Shops and get outfitted with all the bling you desire, Bitches.
