An artist trunk show was held in May at Bella Vita in Collierville to benefit The MED Foundation. Stephanie Singley, owner of the boutique on Houston Levee Road, donated a portion of the proceeds to The MED to help the life-saving work that is performed at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center. The event was a roaring success, open to those interested in impacting The MED by purchasing original, local art.
Stephanie wanted to give back to the hospital that helped restore her mother’s life after a very serious equestrian accident.
“As Mom recovered, we were continually amazed at how well she was cared for at The MED,” Stephanie said. “The staff is so friendly, knowledgeable and understanding. They do this every day, so they understand what you are going through as a loved one of someone who is ill.”
Stephanie’s harrowing experience encouraged her to champion The MED’s cause. “At my two stores, Bella Vita and Itty Bitty Bella in Collierville, we have always been eager to give back to the community,” Stephanie explains. “My heart is connected to The MED now, and I want to impact The MED the way it has impacted me.”
