The Kendra Scott Gives Back Party benefiting Rainbow Days was held at Kendra Scott in Preston Center and guests enjoyed light refreshments while enjoying shopping the new Kendra Scott Winter Collection.
Guests who shopped that evening had 20% of their purchase price donated back to Rainbow Days. Over 50 individuals attended the fun and festive event including the Founder and CEO of Rainbow Days, Cathey Brown. The successful event raised over $1,000 in donations to benefit 11,000 children in the Dallas area that Rainbow Days serves.
