On Tuesday, March 21, Jenni Kayne celebrated the opening of its newest store in Palo Alto’s Stanford Shopping Center. The private shopping event, which included light bites and cocktails, also served as a benefit for Beyond Type 1. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the evening—as well as additional sales through Sunday, March 26—were donated to the Menlo Park-based nonprofit, which aims to bridge the gap from diagnosis to cure. An exclusive dinner for about two dozen guests followed at downtown hot spot Bird Dog. Among the notable attendees were Juliet de Baubigny and Sarah Lucas, co-founders of Beyond Type 1; Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo; and Instagram’s Charles Porch.
