About Kenzie Kids
For over 25 years, Kenzie Kids has offered Boston area families a unique selection of fine clothing, shoes, and gifts for young children. It’s a one-of-a kind store, owned by Estelle Colgan, who believes that children benefit when they learn how to select clothing styles that are appropriate for their age, family budget, and the occasions they attend. Known for carrying a wide assortment from baby’s first swaddle wraps to glamorous special occasion dresses, Kenzie Kids is a store filled with brands that aren’t seen everywhere.
About K Girl
Kgirl was launched three years ago in response to requests from older girls who wanted to shop in a space without “baby clothing.” Kgirl gives tweens and teens a shop of their own. It offers a sophisticated environment where the merchandise mix is both casual and dressy and the selection is hip, distinct, and wearable. While moms are shopping for their girls, they also find things for themselves! Kgirl buyers pay close attention to what’s trending; they represent lines that are “of-the-moment” while maintaining a selection of special timeless pieces that can be worn for years.
About St. Jude
Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
