Isabel Bloom signing event Saturday, March 23 for Family Resources


The Isabel Bloom Signing Event will be held Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Isabel Bloom Showroom, 1505 River Drive in Moline. The limited edition sculpture, "Unconditional Love," depicting a young girl hugging a puppy will be sold and signed at the event by designer Donna Young. Only 200 sculptures are made in the limited edition, in which the puppy's collar is painted purple, the color of domestic violence.

The cost of the limited edition sculpture is $42, with 50% of all sales going to Family Resources programs to combat domestic violence and to provide shelter, food, clothing, relocation and other services to women and children who escape abusive homes. Isabel Bloom will also donate 5% of all showroom sales to Family Resources on the day of the Signing Event.

While the weathered bronze/purple collar sculptures are limited editions, a weathered bronze non-colored collar will be available for sale through Isabel Bloom for $40. Isabel Bloom will also donate a portion of those proceeds to Family Resources.

The Isabel Bloom Signing Event is the first of three events associated with the DOVE Women's Golf Tournament, which will be held this year on Friday, June 7. The tournament also raises funds for Family Resources. DOVE stands for Domestic Violence Ended. The third event is Fill-the-Truck, scheduled this year on Saturday, June 22. Trucks donated by Lujacks will be parked at every HyVee store in the Quad Cities and Muscatine, collecting donated items for the Domestic Violence Shelters in the two communities.

"Unconditional Love" sculptures may be purchased online on Family Resources' website at www.famres.org and picked up at the Signing Event, or they may be purchased at the event. Golfers may also go to the website to register for the DOVE Women's Golf Tournament.
