LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LuxeYard, Inc., (OTCQB: LUXR), the fast-growing boutique luxury flash sale site, today announced its sponsorship of It's All About the Kids, a SoCal-based non-profit organization committed to the advancement of children through the joining of music and the arts, by hosting a Summer of Style Kickoff Party in the company's Los Angeles showroom (8884 Venice Boulevard) on June 19, from 7-10 p.m.
The 30,000-square-foot showroom will feature a number of Pop Up Shops from LuxeYard vendors including Todd Parr Original Artwork, IceLink Jewelry, Elko Weaver Photography, Jaxon Home, The Giving Keys, Cadee Wilder, Flat Bonnie, Anne Foster Designs and Kyle Chan Design. Partygoers will have the chance to enter a drawing to win thousands of dollars in luxury goods that have been donated by LuxeYard brands. All proceeds from the drawing will benefit It's All About the Kids' programs.
"This is LuxeYard's first official sponsorship of a non-profit organization," said LuxeYard CMO Joshua Thompson. "We're hoping to continue to work with It's All About the Kids and base future sponsorship opportunities on the success of this event.
"LuxeYard is headquartered in Los Angeles, and more specifically in Culver City, an area known for its arts and entertainment influence," added Thompson. "We made the decision to make the event public to include as many people from the community as we could. We want people to know that LuxeYard is part of the community and is committed to giving back to it."
The event, co-produced by Sylvia Medellin of re-Invent Productions, will be hosted by LuxeYard's newest Trendsetters Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon, whose celebrity clients include Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and Julianne Hough. Cocktails will be provided by Diabolo and ONEHOPE Wines. Hors d'oeuvres also will be served.
"The mission of It's All About the Kids made them an obvious choice for us," said LuxeYard Creative Director Kelli McDonald. "They are committed to helping young people succeed in arts and education, which closely parallels our own work giving new designers the ability to showcase their designs and products on our site, providing them a great opportunity to grow their brands among our members."
