GK, with the support of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, donated the first in a line of couture gymnastics leotards to the Pink Invitational outreach gymnastics meet on February 24 – 26, 2012 for a fundraising opportunity. The couture leotard was raffled off with proceeds benefiting Unite for HER, a non-profit organization dedicated to breast cancer awareness programs for women. The one-of-a-kind gymnastics leotard carries an approximate retail value of $5,000 and is part of GK’s 2012–2013 Couture Collection.
Raffle tickets were sold at the Pink Invitational meet and online raising over $4,300 for Unite for HER. One proud grandfather of an athlete participating in the meet bought 10 tickets for his granddaughter. That lucky athlete was Bryn Kanagy, a level 4 gymnast from Centre Elite Gymnastics in State College, PA. On Friday, April 20, 2012, Kelly Christman, Sr. Marketing Manager for GK Gymnastics, hand delivered the one-of-a-kind leotard to Miss Kanagy during her gymnastics practice at Centre Elite. The stunning leotard was put on display at the gym and after much ooh-ing and ahh-ing, was presented to Miss Kanagy who, after posing for some pictures, promptly tried on her couture creation right over her workout leo - turning the mat at Centre Elite into an instant runway.
GK is proud to have been a part of another successful Pink Invitational. Save the date for next year's event - February 22-24, 2013!
