Jewelry Shop Steps Up to Give Back

Jewelry Shop Steps Up to Give BackMarch 15, 2011 (New Orleans, LA)—Spring is for giving. This is the position that Wellington & Company, a locally-owned fine jewelry boutique in the French Quarter, has taken this season. The small business has committed substantial gifts, totaling more than $13,000, to three upcoming high-profile fundraising events in April.

Charitable giving is central to the store’s mission of creating a community of sincerity and generosity.

“We have so many wonderful non-profits in town,” says Brandy Baechle Whisnant, the Vice President and Co-Owner of Wellington, “and in this challenged economy, so many organizations are suffering because donors are cutting back. It’s so important to us to make up the difference and fill the gap.”

Brandy is no stranger to charitable giving. An avid volunteer and member of numerous philanthropic boards, Brandy is the President-Elect of the Junior League of New Orleans as well as a longtime board member of STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading). She has spearheaded all of the store’s philanthropic efforts and represents the company in community endeavors.

Wellington & Co. will contribute the exclusive raffle item for the Children's Hospital Sugarplum Ball fundraiser held Friday, April 1 at the New Orleans Fair Grounds. Wellington will also donate the raffle item for the Preservation Resource Center’s 34th annual Julia Jump, held Friday, April 8, at the Roosevelt New Orleans in addition to contributing to the Louise S. McGehee School’s Spring Fundraiser.

Located at 505 Royal Street in New Orleans, Wellington & Co. carries a unique collection of antique, estate, vintage and contemporary fine jewelry, with a particular emphasis on diamond engagement rings.
