K2 Adventures Foundation - BVLGARI Event

By Myra Richman

On Saturday, May 15, 2010, Bulgari and K2 Adventures Foundation held its 1st Annual Fashion Event and Luncheon at the Silverleaf Country Club in north Scottsdale, celebrating the first anniversary of Bulgari's boutique at Fashion Square, Scottsdale. 

The cocktail reception and silent auction were held on the patio terrace, followed by a luncheon, fashion show featuring Bulgari jewelry and accessories and a live auction.  The fashion show featured dramatic models in black dresses wearing jewelry and accessories by Bulgari, walking through the audience and posing on black pedestals.

Proceeds from the luncheon event will benefit Hacienda Healthcare, Whispering Hope Ranch Foundation, Arizona Humane Society and Mwereni Integrated School for the Blind in Africa.  A video presentation showcased each nonprofit, detailing the mission of each.
