June 2nd was a day to remember for some of our graduates and staff members. Six of our HALO youth from both Kansas City and Jefferson City were the special guests of Tiffany & Co. on the Country Club Plaza in a private Breakfast at Tiffany's event.
On this exciting morning, our girls were served breakfast hors d’oeuvres and orange juice while trying on some of the most beautiful jewelry. Nothing was off limits for them to try on, so they wore everything including bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, and more! The staff at Tiffany's also gave us a history lesson on the iconic Tiffany brand, and taught us everything we wanted to know about diamonds. Along with the brand, the team focused on how importance the idea of celebration is to them in the company. This store actually reached out to us for the opportunity to celebrate our girls, make them feel special, and give them this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity and welcoming spirits. At the end of the event, each graduated was presented with a little blue bag of gifts and an orchid.
Tiffany & Co. is known for helping people around the world celebrate monumental occasions, and we are so grateful to them for taking the time to celebrate our graduates and their accomplishments. Thank you, Tiffany's and store manager Julia, for helping our girls see themselves the way we see them. We will never forget this day!
