On the evening of Friday, June 17, 2011, Bering’s and Rolls-Royce of Houston sponsored anelegant and entertaining event featuring Lord Wedgwood of Barlaston. Lord Wedgwood, whowas visiting Houston for the first time from the United Kingdom, is a direct descendent of JosiahWedgwood, the founder of the famous Wedgwood china and ceramics company. The eventkicked off the premiere of the Wedgwood and Waterford “An Artful Life” collection and Bering’s was kind enough to donate 20% of the proceeds from Wedgwood and Waterford sales that evening to the Junior League of Houston.
The evening was a huge success as over fifty League members attended one of the first fun group meetings of the new League year. Many members purchased beautiful Wedgwood pieces for themselves and for gifts. Because of their fabulous shopping and Bering’s amazing generosity, the Junior League raised $1,149.83 to support our community efforts.
