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

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fundraising organization. In 2010, St. Jude was ranked the most trusted charity in the nation in a public survey conducted by Harris Interactive, a highly respected international polling and research firm. St. Jude was also named the nation’s top children’s cancer hospital in the 2010-11 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings published by U.S. News & World Report. For more information, visit www.stjude.org.
