Kiwkw Offical Pendant of Pride House Vancouver
June 4, 2015 – (Vancouver, BC) Pride House Vancouver reveals the official pendant for the pavilion to help commemorate the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. “Kwikw” eagle with soccer ball created by Olympic medal designer Corrine Hunt, and master jeweler, Sandra Bars. The Kiwkw, silver necklace, features an eagle and an equal sign on one side and a soccer ball on the other.
Proceeds of the sale of this limited edition, collectors’ item benefit Equal Play FC, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive changes for girls and women on and off the field using the excitement of the FIFA Women’s World Cup as a catalyst.
The eagle is the ruler of the sky and has the ability to transform itself. It represents power and prestige. Corrine Hunt, designer of the pendant, went on to explain, “I support this campaign because soccer is good for everybody and equality, inclusion, and soccer is even better.”
Carrie Serwetnyk, former Canadian Women’s soccer national team player, first woman inductee in the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame and now the executive director at Equal Play FC, said, “We are honoured that Pride House Vancouver has chosen the Kwikw as the official pendant for this historical pavilion. Pride House continues to create visibility for gender and sexual minorities in sports. The Kwikw and the symbolism that Corrine Hunt has been able to create echoes this important message in rising up to be strong, confident and authentic both on and off the field.
Kwikw is available online at equalplayfc.com starting at $59.99 plus taxes and shipping and handling. A limited 14-kart gold edition is also available starting at $280. Limited quantities of the pendents will also be available at Pride House Vancouver June 26 – July 5th, 2015.
