“Why are there dogs in that jewelry store?”
It was a question heard more than once from passersby on Nov. 10 outside the Kendra Scott store at Baybrook Mall in Friendswood.
The answer: A Life to Live’s adoptable pets were the guests of honor at another Kendra Gives Back party to benefit our organization.
Many of those people who wondered who that doggy in the window was decided to find out. And after they checked out several of our foster animals, some also decided to purchase jewelry.
With Kendra Scott donating 20% of sales from 6 to 8 p.m. to A Life to Live, we received $682 in proceeds. Another $80 came our way from a raffle, which saw one lucky ticket buyer receive a designer piece of jewelry courtesy of Kendra Scott and $100 in gift cards courtesy of Microsoft.
Among those who stopped by during the pleasant fall evening was a newly engaged couple who came by to pick up her ring. When she spotted a sweet doggie face that she also fell in love with, she convinced her future husband that they should adopt.
While no other animals were taken home that night, they all received plenty of love from customers and Kendra Scott staff.
This marked the fifth time we have held a fundraising event in conjunction with Kendra Scott, which is one of our corporate partners. As always, we thank them for the opportunity to educate others about our mission and help us to continue saving the lives of homeless dogs and cats.
A Life to Live holds fundraising events throughout the year to support our various programs and services. Check our calendar to learn about upcoming events.
