Who: You, your family & friends
What: Spring Bling… A Diva Thing shopping event
Where: Downtown West Bend
When: April 27, 2017 12 pm — 9 pm
Why: Proceeds go to CHIX 4 a Cause
Jeanne Renick, owner of Savoring Thyme, is one of three business owners who founded the Diva Group in downtown West Bend in 2008. Because the owners couldn’t be part of an association that promotes events encouraging people to shop downtown, Jeanne motivated six or seven other business owners to form their own organization for the same purpose. Shoppers enjoy riding the trolley downtown to the 21 shops and 6 restaurants participating in the event.
Jeanne’s shop was previously located near the residence of Jillian Clark, CEO/Visionary Founder of CHIX 4 a Cause, Ltd. Throughout the years, Jeanne and Jillian have had many conversations about how so many people are affected by cancer and how CHIX provides Gifts of Love to cancer patients in the local community. Because many of the Diva Group’s customers are women, and the Group loves giving back to the community, Jeanne encouraged the Group to host a spring shopping/dining event and donate all proceeds to a nonprofit organization of their choice. Naturally, Savoring Thyme chose CHIX 4 a Cause.
Jeanne shared that the best part of Spring Bling… A Diva Thing is witnessing the shoppers having fun and creating a positive environment. Coming together for a common cause and entering to win door prizes always results in memorable experiences. Plus, with the extended amount of daylight, customers linger downtown longer and add to the festivities.
This year, Savoring Thyme is selling rings and umbrellas that say “Ringing in the Rain” and “Blinging in the Rain” to raise awareness of CHIX 4 a Cause. Be sure you shop at Savoring Thyme and other stores and restaurants participating in Spring Bling… A Diva Thing to help make an even greater impact for CHIX 4 a Cause!
