Supporting Women’s Heart Health in Style

Friday, June 01, 2012 | COLUMNS: Around Town, Campaigns

Here at Pür, we never miss a chance to support for our favorite cause: women’s heart health. Which is why we’re super excited for Go Red For Women®’s annual luncheon here in Atlanta on June 5th. As the no. 1 killer of American women, heart disease affects us all and has personally touched each of us here at Pür.

With red as the theme (it is Go Red after all), everyone is rocking their finest scarlets, crimsons and roses. We can’t wait to show off our new, flame red GLINT clutch, packed with a few of our Pür Purpose favorites.
