NRF FOUNDATION GALA - Jan 13th
Amanda and KJ won the The Dreamers Award, described by the NRF as "determined idealists whose passion, energy and heart inspire everyone around them. They’ve taken their big dreams and sky-high goals and turned them into retail reality. They're making waves with their fresh ideas and don’t show any signs of slowing down." We were in good company with the likes of Jessica Alba (The Honest Company), Jo Malone CBE (Jo Loves), and more.
Proceeds from the Gala benefit the NRF Foundation’s initiatives including funding for student scholarships and
experiences, training to help people with barriers to employment learn important skills and find jobs, and sharing the real story of retail to promote awareness of the vast career opportunities the industry makes possible (source:NRF).
