The Survivor Mitzvah Project, an urgent humanitarian effort aiding Holocaust survivors in desperate need, is hosting a special event in Beverly Hills on September 25.
A STAR SHINES FOR SURVIVORS is an afternoon of luxury jewelry, compassionate celebrities, sweets and libations.
Most importantly, it launches the “Survivor Bracelet,” an exclusive, limited edition unisex bracelet created by luxury jewelry designer Dominique Cohen.
“Designing this special piece was a labor of love,” says Cohen. “We are thrilled that the funds raised will help sustain and save the lives of Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe.”
The Survivor Bracelet symbolizes the ideal of harmonious coexistence between all peoples. Two diamond accents represent the triumph of good over evil through the power of compassion. The name of a survivor will be engraved on each bracelet as a symbol of universal connectivity. No two bracelets will have the same name.
CNN Hero Zane Buzby, SMP’s founder, explains “These men and women, now in their 80’s and 90’s, are ill, isolated, and lack the means to buy food, medicine, heat and shelter. They are in urgent need. We thank Dominique and all those who generously give to The Survivor Mitzvah Project so that we can write a more hopeful final chapter to the Holocaust, one of kindness and compassion.”
Fashion meets Philanthropy as celebrities and influencers join forces to benefit elderly and impoverished Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe. From 1pm – 5pm on Sunday, September 25, the public is invited to enjoy an afternoon of Ms. Cohen’s handcrafted, one-of-a-kind work in an atmosphere of philanthropic compassion. A star-studded host committee including Mayim Bialik, Valerie Harper, Frances Fisher, Elliott Gould, “Million Dollar Listing’s” Josh Flagg, and television personality Shaun Robinson support A STAR SHINES FOR SURVIVORS initiative.
