Giving back to the community is at the heart of everything we do at David Gardner’s.

One of our greatest joys is partnering with community organizations to raise money. Each piece is thoughtfully selected to meet the needs of the organization. We get really excited when organizations strategically take our donation and multiply the potential through lots of hard work on their part. THAT motivates us to give big!

Several months ago, our hearts were touched by Ethan Fisher’s story and Kidz 1st Fund, the Fisher’s foundation that is passionate about finding a cure for their son & the many families affected by Fanconi Anemia. On October 18, we raised money for Kidz 1st Fund and raised hope for Ethan. It was a festive evening of fundraising, an evening full of memories we will cherish.

About Kidz 1st Fund:

Kidz1stFund was established by Jimbo Fisher and Candi Fisher to fund the fight against Fanconi anemia, a rare blood disorder that affects their son, Ethan. When they were told that Ethan had Fanconi anemia, their lives immediately changed. They wanted to know everything they could about the disease, but soon found that there wasn’t much information available and that having a rare disease also meant that research funding was rare.. That’s when they knew they had to do something that would not only help their son, but also help the many others affected by Fanconi anemia. Over the past seven years, Kidz1stFund has raised 7.5 million dollars for research, encouraged people to join the National Bone Marrow Registry so that patients with FA and over 70 other diseases will be able to find their life saving match and has continues to raise awareness for the disease in the hopes of finding a cure.

Julia and David were honored to co-host a 50th Anniversary kickoff party for Texas A&M’s Mays Business School with Brandon Coleman, a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board and co-chair of Marketing and Communications, and Carri Baker, a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board. The college is celebrating with “Roadshow” kickoff events across the United States preceding the much anticipated 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend September 6-7.

About Mays Business School:

The Texas A&M College of Business Administration was formed in 1968, and John E. Pearson was named dean. It was not until 2002 that the college was renamed Mays Business School. Over the years, Mays has gathered many prestigious accolades and awards such as being accredited by AACSB-International, the premier accrediting agency and service organization for business schools. It was also recently named one of the Forbes Top 20 Best Business Schools and is growing exponentially in innovation and modernization.

Mays Business School has a worldwide network of more than 62,000 former students that are a close-knit and supportive community of past, present, and future Aggies. David, class of ‘78 Mays graduate, is excited to celebrate the milestone. “You know, it’s cool because I am a graduate of the first decade. To achieve what it’s achieved is amazing and something we can be proud of, but to achieve this in only half a century is beyond description.” David said. Among the attendees of the Roadshow event were members of the Dean’s Advisory Board, several outstanding alumni, and Mays’ department heads, to name a few. Three generations of leadership were also present that evening, making it an incredibly special event. David said about the leadership of Mays, “I think the leadership of the school has enhanced the value of my degree every year that I’ve been out. They increase the value of wearing that ring with every progression they make.

The 15th Annual Surviving and Thriving Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon hosted by Pink Alliance once again embodied the spirit of resilience and hope of breast cancer survivors. The crowd of more than 800 listened to featured speaker and Good Morning America Host Amy Robach speak of her personal journey with the disease. Julia and David Gardner were honored to be asked to donate a special piece for the raffle once again.

Stemming from Robach’s book entitled “Better: How I Let Go of Control, Held on to Hope, and Found Joy in my Darkest Hour,” the Gardners designed a version of David’s “Faith Hope and Love” bracelet naming it the “Hold on to Hope” bracelet. A gold link “Hold on to Hope” bracelet was made especially for and gifted to Amy Robach and the winner of the 2017 Surviving and Thriving raffle. This year’s raffle alone raised a whopping $34,000 which will go directly to fund breast cancer research efforts.

While another “Hold on to Hope” bracelet will not be made, the David Gardner designed Faith Hope and Love bracelet is available to be seen in-store.
