Supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Vintage Couture, Inc. helped raise money and awareness for the JDRF in their Walk to Cure Diabetes event on Saturday, September 24.  In this extended portion of a Texas summer, we were lucky to arrive bright and early to a beautiful morning with a cool breeze.  It was a perfect day for a 5K!!

Hundreds of people showed up to participate and enjoy the weather.  Music was blasting while people danced in the midst of vendors, games, bounce houses and train rides.  When the time came, a horn was blown and the masses took off at an explosive and exciting pace.  Many took their time, chatting and laughing along the way.  T-shirts showed off members of groups created in support for specific diabetic children and friends.  We, of course, wore our Vintage Couture shirts proudly!!

Head designer Jessica Wiswall, her three diabetic children and diabetic husband, Vintage Couture Operations Manager Karen Landis and her two daughters, Designer and Production Manager Yvette Day, and Junior Designer Monica Li met at Granite Park in Frisco, Texas.  Together team Vintage Couture raised $1,425.00!

Thanks to those who helped and supported us.  Now it’s back to work to ensure great designs for 2012!!
