Out & About: CASA of Westmoreland Sabika jewelry party
Combining two things that women tend to love — jewelry and children, not necessarily in that order — CASA of Westmoreland hosted a Sabika jewelry party on April 22 in the Westmoreland County Courthouse in Greensburg.
The Westmoreland County Children's Bureau opened its conference room to CASA for the afternoon shopping-and-snacking affair, held in conjunction with Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Half of proceeds went to CASA's mission of providing assistance to children in the family court system due to abuse and/or neglect.
A portion of sales from a special daisy necklace was split by CASA Child Law Services of West Virginia.
Designed by Alexandra Mayr-Gracik, the Little Hearts Sabika Daisy Necklace features a Swarovski crystal surrounded by Pacific opals.
Sabika founder and CEO Karin Mayr of St. Clair, Allegheny County, was on hand to share that helping children is dear to her heart because she is a survivor of childhood abuse.
CASA Executive Director Mandy Zalichand director of development Sherrie Dunlap welcomed guests, while Sabika reps Jennifer Schlieper and Courtney Gumpf helped the ladies find the right piece to accent a special outfit.
Seen: Molly Robb Shimko, Jennifer Reeger, Megan Bilik DeFazio, Shirley Favero, Amanda Knorr, Michelle Bianco, Rachel Sementuh, Gina Davis, Sharon Casario, Rosemary Spoljarick, Adele Cannell and Beth Teacher.
