CCRI is first community college
to have Alex and Ani charm bangle

May 8, 2014

The CCRI Alex and Ani bangle. Proceeds from the sale of the Alex and Ani CCRI bangle will support Alumni Association scholarships and book awards.

In honor of the Community College of Rhode Island's 50th year, the CCRI Alumni Association has partnered with Alex and Ani to create the first-ever community college signature patented expandable wire charm bangle in the country.

Proceeds from the sale of the CCRI charm bangles, which feature the college's seal and are available in gold and silver, will provide financial assistance for students through Alumni Association scholarships and book awards.

Bangles are available exclusively at the CCRI Bookstore locations on all four main campuses in Warwick, Providence, Lincoln and Newport and will be available online on the Bookstore website.

The partnership was a first; Alex and Ani Affinity Sales Manager Colleen Fugere said the company had yet to work with a community college. "CCRI is a Rhode Island institution, and what better way to test the community college market than with someone in our backyard?" said Fugere.

Alumni Association President Louis J. Saccoccio '68 said the funds raised by the sale of the bangles will help many students as they pursue their dreams of higher education.

"Our scholarship and book award recipients tell us how instrumental that extra assistance is to completing their education at CCRI," he said. "One single mother noted that it was hard for her to even find an extra $5 to buy a new notebook, so every donation absolutely helps. Purchasing an Alex and Ani bangle is a wonderful way for alumni and friends of the college to support student success while also receiving a beautiful piece of jewelry to wear."
