On March 24th 2013, premier shopping location KIN Los Angeles held a charity fundraiser “The Love of Fashion” at their store on Sunset Blvd. to raise awareness for the Lupus Foundation of America. Former America’s Next Top Model contestant and Lupus Foundation of America spokesperson Mercedes Yvette, owner of Rockin Models Grace Lazenby, and KIN Los Angeles founder Darrel Adams joined forces to put on this amazing event to create funds to help find a cure for Lupus.
Guests enjoyed a night of shopping, cocktails, and giving back! Attendees participated in a live auction with all proceeds donated to the foundation. KINLosAngeles.com shoppers can continue to give back by entering discount code “lupus” at checkout for 10% off their purchase.
KIN Los Angeles Founder, Darrel Adams had this to say about the event: “I recently found out that lupus effects 1.5 million Americans, 90% of which are women. Our goal is to get KIN involved with the LFA foundation and assist them with fund raising and public awareness efforts. The KIN staff is excited to be hosting a great event with a wonderful organization.”
What a great charity to get involved with, I am always one for giving back and I love companies that stand behind charities that truly make a difference. Living with a rare disease can be hard, but it makes it easier knowing there are people, and companies such as KIN Los Angeles ready to support those living with a disease like lupus.
