May 5, Chappaqua: For a special pre-Mother’s Day event, ICD Contemporary Jewelry hosted and showcased the jewelry of two fine designers, Tovi Farber & Kokku, and also earmarked a portion of the evening’s sales for a generous donation to My Sister’s Place.
Visitors stopping in could catch up with Chappaqua’s very own Helen Williams. Helen, along with Denise Williams, are both active members of the Hudson Valley Chapter of Links, an international women’s community service organization that supports My Sister’s Place, a confidential domestic violence shelter.
My Sister’s Place Director of Development Karly Savino added that she is always looking for ways to spread awareness about why the organization, which is over 40 years old, is so important.
“We support them for helping women who are vulnerable,” added Denise. “We are very interested in their Healthy Relationships program which is focused on young people dating; sometimes domestic violence starts with a young girl’s boyfriend. They go into schools and educate.”
