Designer David Yurman recently brought his Fall Collection to Alson jewelers, Woodmere, Ohio, in a trunk show featuring three new lines. The designer was on hand for a private reception to greet clients, celebrate the new Alson store, and recognize local philanthropists with the David Yurman Humanitarian Award.
Jackie Fisher and Stacie Halpern were honored for their work with “Preston’s H.O.P.E.” (Helping Others Play and Enjoy), a nonprofit organization dedicated to building a $2 million, fully handicapped-accessible park in Beachwood, Ohio—the first such park in the state. Named for Preston Fisher, who was diagnosed at 10 months of age with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the park will be financed through the Preston Fund, created by Ken and Jackie Fisher.
The designer presented the women with Yurman Thoroughbred watches. Alson raised $10,000 for the charity by selling raffle tickets for pieces from Yurman’s Sky Ice Collection, and Yurman drew the winning ticket during the trunk show.
The David and Sybil Yurman Humanitarian and Arts Foundation has recognized celebrities such as Steven Spielberg and Sir Elton John as well as outstanding local individuals—in partnership with retailers—for service to their communities.
