One lucky bidder was able to combine their love for South Sea Pearls and charitable donation when Tenenbaum Classic Jewelers donated a multi-strand pearl necklace and pearl and diamond studs to UNICEF'S Audrey Hepburn Society Ball. The event took place in Houston last week, and honored Barbara Bush for her continued work with the organization.
CultureMap Houston says: "Mrs. Bush [was] presented with the Margaret Alkek Williams Humanitarian Award for her longstanding commitment to furthering education and literacy, and for the tremendous impact she has made on the lives of countless children and their parents."
The former First Lady selected the earrings for auction herself, and was photographed in both. And autographed copy of the photo was presented to the winner along with the beautiful jewels.
Congratulations to Mrs. Bush for her recognition for all her charitable work. We hope the award didn't make her inneligable to particpate in the auction!
