Marketplace at The Abbey, a European lifestyle boutique offering custom furniture and florals and one-of-a-kind home decor and accessories, teamed up with Cardinals Wives for Wishes and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Missouri to produce "Boots and Bling" on June 11 at Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, 1855 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The event helped raise funds that are needed to grant wishes to local children battling life-threatening medical conditions. The Abbey staff consulted on design for the event and loaned pieces from its store that fit the theme. This is the third year in a row that The Abbey, located at 10090 Manchester Road in Glendale, has contributed to this cause.
"It is something we look forward to all year. We love bringing in design elements to really make an event special, and being able to do this for such a wonderful cause is indescribable," said Abbey founder Laura Wilson.
The event raised more than $110,000 for Make-A-Wish Missouri.
