Evelyn & Arthur recently hosted an in-store sales event for customers with a percentage of proceeds going to support the mission of the Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation. The one-day event, which took place on January 29th, gave shoppers the chance to try-on the popular Lisette L Montreal Pant favored by celebrities like Oprah and Kathie Lee Gifford. In addition to Evelyn & Arthur’s donation, for every pair of Lisette L Montreal pants that were tried on, Lisette L Montreal donated $1 to the nonprofit organization.
“We are honored to support the important work of the Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation,” said Adrianne Weissman, president of Evelyn & Arthur. Weissman recently presented a check for $8,300 to Ellen Svitek to help further the nonprofit’s mission.
The Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation directs and supports scholarships and grants to schools and universities to promote the exploration, study, use, and enjoyment of the outdoors and wilderness. Programs supported include Outward Bound and National Outdoor Leadership School. Kate Svitek tragically lost her life in an Oregon snowboarding accident at age 22. Kate spent her life helping people better understand, appreciate and protect the natural world.
“The generous support of companies like Evelyn & Arthur is what makes our work possible,” said Ellen Svitek. “We look forward to funding more projects and programs dedicated to preserving, maintaining, or improving the environment as we continue to honor Kate’s legacy.”
Evelyn & Arthur, a staple in Palm Beach County for more than 33 years, is not only known for their fashions but also for supporting nonprofit organizations in all of its store locations. Continued Weissman about their efforts, “We believe strongly in supporting organizations helping to make an impact in the lives of others.”
The Kate Svitek Memorial Foundation Try On event took place at Evelyn & Arthur’s Palm Beach Gardens location, 10937 Military Trail, in the Garden Square Shoppes, just west of Interstate 95 at the corner of PGA Blvd. The store is open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m. For more information call (561) 630-6345 or visit www.evelynandarthur.com.
