Bottega Veneta in Palm Desert presented a $1,000 check on Nov. 18 to “Behind A Miracle” (BAM), which spearheads financial assistance in the Coachella Valley for cancer screenings, treatment, and research,
Store Manager Abby Blaseck and her sales staff won the $1,000 from a sales contest held for all Bottega Veneta retail stores. The staff decided to pass the gift on to the founder of BAM, Selby Durham, who received the check in the Palm Desert store with several BAM board members present.
The gift will be added to the money raised during the two week November shopping period with The Shops on El Paseo. During this period, 10 percent of all sales are given to the charity. Those fundraising efforts culminated at the Nov. 21 Bighorn BAM event on El Paseo.
