Kina Denton

As you may have already heard, our lovely, patient, young, knowledgeable, meticulous, and extremely helpful Kina has suffered a stroke. The doctors say it was minor and she will be fine. However, she did have to spend a number of days in the hospital and she does not have insurance.

To help with her medical expenses, Ayla's Originals will also be holding a “Special Beading Nite Benefit” and Raffle (see below) on Thursday, December 15 from 4-8pm: Spend an evening with Kina, Ivy, Colette, Lucie and Ayla. 50% of the proceeds from all retail sales will go to help Kina pay her hospital bill.

We are also collecting monetary donations. People can make deposits at Harris Bank. Use a deposit slip, and instead of an account number, just write in "Kina M. Denton Benefit Fund." Make sure to fill in your name and address on the deposit slips! Kina wants to thank you personally.

We will also be selling "Raffle for Kina" tickets ...

... for some great prizes, including a gift certificate to Ayla’s and a free stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Evanston and so much more! If you would like to donate raffle prizes or buy raffle tickets, please let me know. Raffle tickets are $5 each or 10 for $45. The Raffle will be drawn during the December 15 party.
Prizes include:

  • $250 spending spree at Ayla’s Originals
  • Photography portrait session at Joseph Studios
  • A night’s stay & breakfast at the Hilton Garden Inn Evanston

A note from Kina:

Dear friends and extended family of Ayla's Originals:

It has been my sincere pleasure to serve you during the almost thirteen years that I have been at Ayla's Originals.

Your kind words, thoughts, prayers, gifts, and donations have brought immeasurable comfort and relief to me and my family during a very difficult time.

I am truly humbled by your outpouring of love, kindness, and generosity. I only hope that I can continue to serve you and be worthy of even a fraction of the blessings that you have bestowed upon me.

I am doing well and growing stronger each day. I hope to be back in the store by the first of December. I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful faces!

With much love,

Kina Denton
