Mother’s Day Idea: Brenda Novak Silk Scarf For The Cure of Diabetes

April 19, 2011 • Accessories


In honor of Mother's Day, Hayden-Harnett has created a limited-edition silk summer scarf using an excerpt from New York Times bestselling author, philanthropist and mother of five Brenda Novak’s upcoming novel "INSIDE."

The scarf (which measures about 40" X 40") will be sold on during the month of May (Gilt $60.00 sale price/retail price $120.00) with 100% of the profits going toward the charity, Brenda Novak For The Cure of Diabetes. This organization, founded by Brenda, has raised over a million dollars for diabetes research in recent years. The author's youngest son suffers from the disease so this charity is clearly near and dear to her heart. Buyers of the scarf will also receive an autographed copy of Brenda Novak’s upcoming beach read, INSIDE, just in-time for Memorial Day as their FREE gift with purchase.

Additionally, Brenda's annual online auction for diabetes research starts May 1st. So far they have raised $1 million for research. This year they are hoping to set a new record (last year's was $303,000). Up for bid are items such as tickets to Celine Dion in Vegas with a meet and greet, an $8500 tanzanite and diamond ring, an invitation for four to the taping of the hit TV show, "The Big Bang Theory", the chance to meet and have lunch with famous authors, and so many opportunities for aspiring writers it isn't that are too numerous to list here.
