Lagos Raises Over $100K for Charity
Lagos has raised more than $100,000 with its limited-edition ceramic Caviar bracelet designed to support the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, the brand announced.
The funds were raised at the annual Power of Love gala put on by Keep Memory Alive (KMA), an organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by brain disorders.
“Each year we look to expand our commitment to this important cause,” said Lagos founder and creative director Steven Lagos, in a statement. “Jewelry helps build memories, and our collectible pieces act as mementos for future reflection. We’re honored to contribute to Keep Memory Alive in this way, to help support their ongoing work.”
In addition to proceeds from the bracelet, a curated selection of styles totaling more than $50,000 was featured as a part of Lagos’ contribution to the gala’s silent auction. To date, Lagos has raised over $1 million for the cause.
The 2023 limited-edition bracelet is available for purchase on lagos.com, with 100 percent of its proceeds going to Keep Memory Alive.
