Carolyn Rafaelian has Dinner with Leigh Anne and Collins Tuohy from ‘The Blindside’

While Carolyn was in Tennessee supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Memphis, she had the opportunity to dine with Leigh Anne and Collins Tuohy.  The Tuohy family was the inspiration behind the hit movie ‘The Blindside’.  Leigh Anne had fallen in love with Alex and Ani while she was shopping on Saks.com and came upon our expandable wire bangles.

Leigh Anne was getting compliments on her bangles every time she wore them, and Collins had started wearing them as well.  They both became such huge fans of Alex and Ani, they contacted us and as it turned out Carolyn had a trip already  planned to Tennessee!

They met last night for dinner and automatically hit it off!  Carolyn had said, “Meeting with Leigh Anne was so refreshing…being around a woman who is so comfortable in who she is and has no limits or boundaries around her truly inspired me.  She exemplifies the word empowerment.”

We are all fans of the Tuohy family and think they are an inspiration for all of us. All of us at Alex and Ani wish ’The Blindside’ and Sandra Bullock good luck this Sunday at the Oscars.  Check back later for pictures of Carolyn with Leigh Anne and Collins…
