RACE TO ERASE MS KICKS OFF MAY AS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS AWARENESS MONTH WITH A FUNDRAISER AT KITSON BOUTIQUE
SATURDAY, MAY 1, 2010
WHAT: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Survivor and advocate Nancy Davis will kick off May’s MS Awareness month with a party at the Kitson Melrose Boutique with the help of a newly formed Junior Committee devoted to the cause.
Inspired by Nancy’s dedication to finding a cure, and with the early desire to make a difference, a group of Los Angeles high school students have formed a Junior Committee to raise funds and awareness for Race to Erase MS and the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. The junior committee, including Paris Sanders (Marlborough ’14), Owen Thiele (Crossroads ’14), Katie Kaplan (Marlborough ’14) and Caroline Catherine Bell (Harvard-Westlake ’14), has been involved in all the planning details and will host the event, inviting nearly 300 of their friends, LA community members and supporters of Nancy Davis out to participate. Committee member and student Owen Thiele will be performing at the event which will include a raffle and the sale of many “orange” items to benefit the cause, with orange being the vibrant color chosen to represent hope in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.
Throughout the month of May, Kitson will sell a variety of orange products in their stores including Peace & Love by Nancy Davis products, Celebrity Designed T-Shirts and Jewelry, Donni Charm scarf, Simon G jewelry and more, with 100% of the sales going to benefit the foundation. In addition, Kitson will donate 1% of all Kitson store sales for the month of May to the Nancy Davis Foundation in their Race to Erase MS.
