Charmed by Charity for Lund

Posted in Adoption, Donor Spotlight, Events tagged , , , , , at 3:16 pm by Lund

There were ladybugs, mermaids, blue crystals and energy punch at a recent party hosted by Wanda Audette, Director of Adoption and Barbara Rachelson, Executive Director but it wasn’t a practice for Halloween.  It was a Charmed By Charity event for Lund at Alex and Ani in Burlington.  The whimsical charm bracelets, popular with celebrities such as Sandra Bullock, Paul McCartney and our very own Wanda, are a signature item of the company.  Alex and Ani is a nationwide chain of jewelry stores founded by Carolyn Rafaelian based on the principle that everyone has a positive message to share with the world and that jewelry can be a beautiful and effective way to do this.  Carolyn is also passionately dedicated to helping local organizations in the communities where her stores are located and so the Charmed by Charity concept was born. 

During the party for Lund, 15% of the profits of jewelry sold went to Lund.  This amounted to about $400.  This money will go directly into our programs to help women and children thrive.  “I am grateful to the folks at our local Alex and Ani store for their support and help in hosting an event for Lund and very grateful to all who came out that night to shop and raise money for Lund,”  says Barbara.  “It was a fun evening and an enjoyable way for folks to come out and raise money for Lund while buying products made in America.”

Barbara, Wanda, guests and Alex and Ani staff members enjoy the festivities.
