Max’s 10th Birthday Party: Supporting LifeSource

Max’s at The Shops at Excelsior & Grand is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the “Max’s 10th Birthday Party” on Friday, May 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The party is free and open to the public. Renowned jewelry designer Vicente Agor will be at the event for a trunk showing of his collections and to launch his first-ever Bridal collection that he was inspired to create following his own wedding last year.

Vincente is also a double-transplant recipient who spent the first 20 years of his career as a marketing executive in the investment banking industry. When he experienced the devastating health crisis that resulted in his having a kidney and pancreas transplant, he completely changed the course of his life. He calls the transition “Life 2.0” in reference to his second chance at life which inspired him to follow his passion, marking the beginning of his jewelry business.

In honor of Vicente, Max’s donates a portion of the sale of his work throughout the year to two local organizations – LifeSource and the University of Minnesota Transplant Assistance Fund.
