We believe in giving back to the community

that has been so good to us throughout the years...


We have established scholarships

in our Dad’s memory in the business department and in our Mom's memory in the fashion and design department

at the local high school,

not for the smartest kid, but for the kid who tries the hardest...

That's all our parents ever asked of us.
