Proceeds from Luxury Watches to Help Find A Cure for SMA


Hal Martin's Watch & Jewelry Co. helps Sophia's Cure Foundation find a cure for SMA by donating a portion of proceeds from luxury watch and jewelry sales.

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

On Monday October 29th, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Hal Martin's Watch & Jewelry store will be hosting a public Trunk Show, along with Tal Barkel of Tal's Designs, Inc., who designs beautiful one of a kind jewelry. A portion of the evenings proceeds will be donated to Sophia's Cure Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity. The show's efforts will assist in further funding for clinical research towards finding a cure for SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) while offering support to families affected by this disease by providing advocacy, awareness, education and support.

SMA is the leading genetic killer of children under the age of two. It is a terminal, degenerative disease that takes away a child's ability to walk, stand, sit, eat, breathe and even swallow. It is usually inherited as an autosomal recessive trait (a person must get the defective gene from both parents to be affected).

There is currently no treatment and no cure, but the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) selected SMA as the disease closest to treatment of more than 600 neurological disorders.

The invitation to the Trunk Show is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend this casual event. Feel free to browse the store's luxury watches, Wolf Designs watch winders, Tal's designs or just show support for Sophia's Cure Foundation. Light food and drinks will be served during the benefit.

Hal Martin's Watch and Jewelry store is one of the largest pre-owned luxury watch stores in Houston, as well as the state of Texas. With over two hundred luxury wrist watches on display, from used Rolex watches to Panerai watches to custom designed jewelry and watch winders, there is something for everyone.
