Scott has donated more than $800,000 to Inheritance of Hope and since 2017 has served 120 families and donated over $1 million to breast cancer research.
This year, Scott continues her partnership with IOH, and according to a press release, her goal is to raise $150,000 for Inheritance of Hope on October 13 by purchasing 20% of all Kendra Scott sales – in stores and online – returns to IOH .
Money raised on Thursday will help fund IOH’s 5th Legacy Retreat in Orlando in March 2023.
In addition to shopping for Scott’s 2022 Breast Cancer Collection, families can bring their children to meet their favorite princesses. There will also be a question and answer panel with the Vice President for Texas Oncology, dr Debra Patt, MD PhD MBA. Participants will also have the opportunity to write a message of hope to a woman undergoing breast cancer treatment.
