Donna Ward added, “I am so excited about this very special, fun event and honored to be a part of it. Daphne Shoe Boutique, Claire Flowers Designs, Pamela Denham & Associates, and Stokley Garden Express, partnering together to support the goals of my foundation, Hope 4110, is something for which I am very grateful.”
Missouri-based owner/designer Claire Flowers will also be on site showcasing the debut of The Donna & The Hope shoes, a special design collaboration by Donna Ward & Claire Flowers, an element recently added to her brand in support of breast cancer awareness.
“Since 2017, my company, Claire Flowers, has donated every October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), to an organization that helps women with breast cancer. The first year we added special hot pink heel caps to the design of our shoes. A percentage of all net sales of these special shoes with the pink heel caps was donated to The Siteman Cancer Research Center in St. Louis, MO,” Flowers said. “After this first project, the requests poured in to continue with this hot pink heel cap design. It is now an official pink tip signature design element of the Brand and it has been trademarked. Claire Flowers has maintained our commitment to supporting this important cause. We are excited to partner with Daphne’s Shoe Boutique, Donna Ward and Pamela Denham & Associates to support Donna’s Hope 4110 Foundation and her book, ‘Unexpected Hope’ at this special event.”
Daphne’s Shoe Boutique is located at 818 Manci Avenue in downtown Daphne, Al. For more information, contact Daphne’s Shoe Boutique at (251) 525-8755.
