HERO: Mark your calendars for Dec. 2-4 to take advantage of wholesale prices for exotic items from the collection of acclaimed designer Sudha Pennathur. The sale of Sudha's treasures benefits The Redwoods, a nonprofit senior residential community in Mill Valley. A Tiburon resident, Sudha frequently travels to India where she mentors a group of master craftspeople to create her distinctive jewelry and other gift items. "Every year the Sudha sale benefits the craftspeople of India as well as The Redwoods," said Barbara Solomon, executive director of The Redwoods. "We are grateful for Sudha's incredible commitment to people globally and locally." Sounds like Sudha's a Hero just about everywhere. The benefit sale is Dec. 2 to 4 at Town Center Corte Madera.
Jill Greenman, Chair of The Redwoods, formally received a $30,000 check from The House of Pennathur as a donation from the proceeds of the fund raiser on October 5th featuring Sudha’s unique collection of jewelry at Elisabeth Theriot’s estate. Sudha & Ed personally made a matching contribution that made up this figure. It was a rewarding moment for Ed Messerly, Craig Potter and Sudha who had put in innumerable hours getting ready for the sale. Many of the unique designs created for this event sold right away and the big pieces will be shown at Bergdorf Goodman on the 18th and 19th of November at a special appearance by Sudha in New York on the Seventh Floor.
