Flexpower celebrates its launch at luxury store McMullen
Flexpower’s Rasheen Smith and Sherri McMullen hosted a cocktail party in support of Eat. Learn. Play.
We celebrated our launch at the Oakland luxury hotspot McMullen with an event co-hosted by founder Sherri McMullen and Flexpower founder Rasheen Smith. The event supported the local organization Eat. Learn. Play. which was founded by Steph and Ayesha Curry to unlock the potential of every child by fighting to end childhood hunger, ensuring students have access to a quality education, and providing safe places for all children to play and be active.
“Everything we do at Flexpower is around the idea of feeling good, and helping those around us feel good,” said Rasheen Smith, founder of Flexpower. “The opportunity to celebrate our launch with Sherri McMullen and her team is particularly special for me as a resident of this community for over 20 years now. Sherri is a phenomenal visionary. She is consistently at the forefront of fashion and all-things trending. I am proud to be a partner while also supporting our friends at Eat. Learn. Play.”
Guests at the event were treated to hand and neck massages with Flexpower Soothe, the company’s arnica-based soothing and scent free pain relief lotion, as well as “feel good” treats including samples of the company’s botanical-based products.
"Flexpower has remained a dedicated supporter of our continued efforts to create and provide access and equitable opportunities for kids to play." said Chris Helfrich, CEO of Eat. Learn. Play. "Their alignment with our mission has been tremendous."
