Jeanette Korab Supports Suicide and Crisis Center at Cork


Local jewelry designer and artist Jeanette Korab set up a pop-up shop at Cork Premier Wine Bar to support the Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas (SCC).  Guests got the chance to purchase Korab's stunning jewelry and original artwork and a portion of the sales benefited the cause.

The event was hosted by two of the most dedicated and stylish women in Dallas: Lisa Petty and Yvonne Crum.  Lisa is the editor of DFW Style Daily and Yvonne is a long-time supporter of the SCC.  Their tireless support for philanthropy efforts in Dallas is inspirational.

“Now more than ever, the mission of the Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas is front of mind for us all,” said Petty.

Recent statistics provided by the SCC reveal the serious problem of suicide, particularly for young people.  In the United States, there are approximately 12 youth suicides each day.  Specifically in Texas, suicide is the second leading cause of death for teens ages 15 to 19.  The center works with schools in the Dallas metroplex to provide mental health screenings that identify those suffering in silence. 


Lisa and Yvonne believe that fashion is a helpful avenue to promote suicide prevention.  Both agree that this message is particularly necessary to facilitate important conversations and remove the stigma associated with suicide.  Fashion events in Dallas draw large crowds, especially when a charity is involved.  Crum said, “It’s an unbeatable force with the spotlight on awareness, which I believe is the key to saving lives.”

Guests admired Korab’s jewelry, which was displayed according to color, in the bar’s intimate party area.  Korab, explained that each piece of jewelry is made of natural gemstones, pearls and gold.  Guest Rosanne Hart, publicist and owner of The Hart Agency (and my fashion PR professor), fell in love with a black crystal and red jade ring.  She ended up purchasing it because it's a perfect complement to her signature style.  Rosanne said, “I was thrilled to see how successful she has become.  Her jewelry and art are exquisite!”  


Fellow designer and business owner Chelsea Britt Stumo of clothing line RubyBritt assisted Korab in creating displays and answering guests’ questions during the event.  Stumo said she was honored to be a part of the event for such an important cause alongside Petty, Crum and Korab.

The Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas helps those impacted by suicide through support groups.  The center also organizes youth groups to raise awareness for the issue.  In conjunction with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the SCC answers calls in the Dallas metroplex with a 24/7 crisis line run by trained counselors and volunteers.
Both Korab and Cork Premier Wine Bar owner Stephanie Rennells contributed a portion of the evening's sales to the cause.
