A night of great food, stunning jewelry, and most importantly a night of awareness describes the fundraiser that Allison Elizabeth Designs held on June 3 at Mumon Restaurant in Garden City, benefiting the ELIJA School for Autism in Levittown.
Individuals who came to support both Allison Elizabeth Designs and The ELIJA School for Autism had the opportunity to purchase the beautiful handcrafted jewelry that designer Allison Becker created. A portion of her proceeds went to benefit the ELIJA School for Autism.
Becker travels around the world finding the perfect precious stones to create one-of-a-kind jewelry. From Russia to the west, when you purchase a piece of Allison Elizabeth’s wearable art, you know that it is unique and spectacular. If you would like to look at the portion of Allison Elizabeth designs please visit www.allisonelizabethdesigns.com or visit the new Flirt boutique, located in Hewlett, where there are some exclusive designs.
In addition to the jewelry fundraiser, a designer handbag silent auction was held that night, with all proceeds going to the ELIJA School. Generous donors were asked to sift through their closet and donate a gently used designer handbag. Some of the donations included Prada, Coach, Gucci, Tumi, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and more. In addition, people who bought a piece of jewelry from Allison Elizabeth or made a bid were entered to win a $50 Mumon gift card and a Bestyville handbag.
The proceeds raised that night go to help fund the ELIJA School and to maintain a one-to-one ratio between students and teachers. Striving to meet every one of their goals, they need money to fund the magnificent programs that help children and adults with Autism.
