Alex and Ani Fundraiser to benefit the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Everyone loves Alex and Ani jewelry. So, please join us for a very special fundraiser to benefit the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF). Charmed by Charity is an event being held at Alex and Ani, 327 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. 15% of all sales will go directly to VBF. You need not be present to participate in this fundraiser (please see details below).


This event is being organized for the second year in a row by sisters Tara Frazier and Kristin Krikorian. Tara’s 3 year old son, Alec has a vascular birthmark called a port wine stain. Last year’s event was a lot of fun and a huge success!


IF YOU LIVE OUT OF STATE OR ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND, you can call the store in Saratoga, NY as early as Sunday, March 16th to HOLD your item(s) but you must call the store back on Wednesday before 9:00 PM EST to provide your credit card information to purchase your item(s). Also, all of the Charity by Design items can be purchased but the credit will not go towards our fundraiser. The Saratoga store phone number is 518-871-1638. If you have any questions, please call the store or the event hostess, Tara Frazier at 518-892-9154. You MUST mention the VBF fundraiser in order for VBF to receive the 15% on your order.




  • VBF will ONLY receive 15% of the sales on merchandise that is in stock (excluding Charity by Design items) at the Saratoga store – online orders will not benefit VBF. When you call the Saratoga store, please ask if the item you are interested in is in stock.


  • In stock merchandise purchased via the telephone can be shipped to your home for $7.00. If you chose to “opt out” of having to sign for your delivered package, the shipping cost will be $5.00. To opt out of signing for your package you must tell them when you call to place your order.


  • All orders called in prior to the 19th will not be processed until the 19th. The store will hold the order and your credit card information until the night of the event so that VBF can receive the 15%.


To view Alex and Ani merchandise, please visit their website at WWW.ALEXANDANI.COM. PLEASE DO NOT ORDER THROUGH THIS WEBSITE as VBF will not receive the 15%.


Again, please remember to mention the VBF fundraiser so that VBF can benefit from your purchase!
