Dolly Outdoes Herself
Some scientists at Moderna have created a COVID vaccine that is 95% effective in preliminary analysis. Surprisingly, the Dolly Parton COVID-19 research fund was listed in the acknowledgments of the funding. She made the gift in honor of her longtime friend, Naji Abumrad, MD, professor of Surgery, to support research teams. As if it is not enough that her Imagination Library has already delivered 147,137,107 books, she continues to show why we will always love her.
Clint Black has written or co-written all of his hits, including “A Better Man,” “Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Killin’ Time,” “Loving Blind,” “Nothin’ but the Taillights,” “Summer’s Comin’,” and ”When I Said I Do.” Black has scored more than twenty #1 singles on the Billboard country charts, has won numerous ACM and CMA awards, and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1991.

Raising Alzheimer's awareness
November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month and is a cause very near and dear to Eleni Vavouris, the Executive Chef/Proprietor of EVO Originals. She lost her great-grandmother and grandmother to Alzheimers. For each bottle of EVO sold at Batch between Nov. 1-30, EVO will donate 10% of the total monthly sales to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Gift Guide Guide
What did we do before gift guides? Wander the aisles aimlessly? Waste time clicking around websites? Now that every website from Architectural Digest to Zappos has a gift guide, the hard part is wading through gift guides to find the perfect gift guide. To help, we recommend two guides that featured our gifts: Today's 15 best gifts for coffee lovers who enjoy a good cup of joe and Style Blueprints's 3 Delicious Ways to Send Love This Holiday Season. We have also reorganized our website to make it easier to find small-business made gifts by interest or by recipient or by ethos.
