Mother Daughter Derby Day Chari-TEA to Raise Funds for Local Children’s Hospital

(SAVANNAH, GA) Matilda Jane Clothing is pleased to announce the inaugural Derby Day Mother Daughter Chari-TEA to be held on Saturday, May 2 at the Savannah Golf Club. Drinks and refreshments will be served from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets are $25, with proceeds benefiting The Next Generation. Keeping in the tradition of Derby Day, guests are invited to wear their favorite hats.

The Next Generation is a volunteer organization founded to benefit The Children’s Hospital at Memorial University Medical Center. The Next Generation’s mission is to foster a positive healthcare experience for children and to further educate parents on children’s healthcare matters through fundraising, volunteer service and educational outreach.

“I wanted to invite mothers and grandmothers and little girls to join me and my daughters for tea,” said Robyn Shirley, Matilda Jane Clothing’s Independent Trunk Keeper and a Team Leader for the Southeast, “I love meeting other families in town and I feel like opening up Matilda Jane’s trunk is the perfect way to honor all Mothers.”

During the Chari-TEA, a trunk full of clothes and fun hats will be available for guests to dress up in and take snapshots at a Matilda Jane photo area. Professional photos will also be available the next day. To purchase a ticket, contact Cecilia Russo at 912.665.0005 or info@crussomarketing.com.

Matilda Jane Clothing (MJC) was founded by Denise DeMarchis in 2006 as a kitchen table startup that has quickly grown into a national children’s clothing business. Available in girls and adult sizes with designs that are youthful, playful and expressive, the brand’s whimsical approach to texture, pattern and color results in designs that capture the spirit and imagination of childhood. MJC sales are made directly though a Trunk Keeper, a representative who gets to know her customers personally. The exclusive sale of clothing by Trunk Keepers is a direct selling model allowing business opportunities for entrepreneurial women driven by creativity and relationship building.
