Winston's Wish

To say I'm lucky at my job is a MAJOR understatement. I've met some of the most interesting people, learned so much about the city of Columbia, SC and what it has to offer and even more about the state of South Carolina. Among the most special opportunities I've had at Pink Sorbet was being a (very small) part of Winston's Wish.

Winston's Wish is a very special support organization for those with autism and their families. I didn't know anything about Winston's Wish until I got to Columbia, and even more specifically until I worked at Pink Sorbet.

This year the store has paired up with Winston's Wish AND Lilly to create the coolest, "most awesome" (that's one of our favorite phrases in the store) scarves that you've ever seen with some of the proceeds going to Winston's Wish:
Not only can you see the store and children playing throughout scenes in the scarf, but you get to see Winston himself too:
Famous for his bowties, he's featured prominently in the scarf:
Can you spot him? Look towards the top in the middle! You'll see him smilin' away in his darling seersucker suit and bowtie!
Here's even more of the story to go along with the special scarf!

I am SO excited to even have the chance to be associated with this awesome foundation, cause, and store. It has truly opened my eyes and I couldn't wait to share it with y'all!!

My brother has autism and my family always participates in the Special Olympics, autism awareness is a cause near and dear to my heart. Is there a way you could purchase the scarf in DC?
