We have a great new event coming up that will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The event will be held at our Glittering Conscience store location on May 3, 2011 starting at 6pm and going on until the sun comes up! (Or until everyone remembers they have work the next day and decides it’s time to head home). Complimentary light fare and wine will be served and 10% of proceeds for the evening will go to the Foundation.
Normally R&C and Glittering Conscience have held charitable shopping events to support impoverished communities and people in Africa, specifically Sierra Leone, so you might be wondering what lead us to team up with the MJF Foundation. It was actually chosen by Jennifer Goodman of GothamGear- a new vendor to Glittering Conscience, and her event co-host, Susan Bilotta. The funny thing is, two members of the Ruff&Cut team- including Founder, Wade Watson –have had experiences with Parkinson’s affecting a family member. So, although this was an aberrant choice of charity, it still manages to hold a place in our hearts.
We hope that those in the NYC area will stop by Wednesday, May 3rd starting at 6pm for this special shopping soiree. All of Ruff&Cut’s current and readily available collections will be there for you to gaze upon and try on in-person, as well as R&C’s other all-color brand, Klido. GC also carries Arm Candy by Nahui Ollin, NaturevsFuture, c5 Company, and many other great eco-conscious brands and products.
Here are some images from our past grand opening event back in December:
