UNC Charlotte and boutique jeweler Kendra Scott are partnering for a fundraising event to benefit the Ellis Reed Parlier Scholarship.
Scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 3, the fundraiser will be at Kendra Scott’s SouthPark location. Shoppers whose In-store purchases total $100 or more will receive a free gift, while supplies last.
Parlier was one of two students who died in a campus shooting April 30, 2019, that also injured four students. His mother and sister collaborated with Kendra Scott to create jewelry, which will be available for purchase during the event.
In-store fundraiser attendees can participate in a raffle; prizes will include a package with four passes to the 49er Tailgate Village and tickets for a football game this season.
Supporters who are unable to attend the Aug. 3 event can order online at kendrascott.com; use the code GIVEBACK-NINER at checkout on purchases made from Monday, Aug. 1, through Sunday, Aug. 14, to benefit the Ellis Reed Parlier Scholarship.
