The Pearl Club
Made locally. Made naturally. Made with love.
DOSALAS is partnering with Koko’s Candles, a female-owned business operated by Janeen Kokodynski in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Janeen started Koko’s Candles after losing her one-month-old son Mathew to a congenital heart defect in 2005. Since then, Janeen has been working tirelessly with the Children’s Heart Foundation to fundraise + create awareness. Koko’s Candles was born in 2017, combining her love of candle-making with her efforts at the nonprofit.
Each Koko’s Candle contains a small hammered pewter heart at the bottom, revealed once the candle has burned out completely. The heart is imperfectly shaped to represent Mathew’s heart + it was originally passed out during his funeral. Once the candle is burned out, you can place the slightly misshapen pewter heart in your pocket or purse as a reminder that you’re loved.
A CANDLELIT WATERFRONT
DOSALAS is proud to partner with Koko’s Candles — you can find them throughout the DOSALAS dining room, lighting the waterfront. If you’d like to support Janeen’s mission, please purchase a candle from the link below. All the proceeds go straight to Koko’s Candles + a portion of the profits from each candle is donated to the Children’s Heart Foundation.
Casual wear for a cause.
You can purchase shirts made + designed by Edgar Castro, Jorge’s younger brother + the CEO + Founder of a lifestyle brand called The Watchers Apparel.
The Watchers Apparel brings shirts, t-shirts + apparel that bridge the gap between high-fashion + streetwear, providing accessible + casual apparel to compliment an active lifestyle marked by hard work + fitness. Edgar’s shirts are for those who want to stay at the top of their game, whether that involves start-up businesses, fitness, or other passions.
SHOP AT EDGAR'S ETSY STORE
Edgar started selling t-shirts on Etsy when he was suddenly diagnosed with stage 2B testicular cancer. Unable to be in a regular work setting, Edgar decided to sell his own designs in the form of t-shirts to pay his medical bills instead of asking his family for help. He believes anyone willing to work hard + keep faith is being “watched over,” + that belief led him to the name “The Watchers.”
Golden Water Bottles
Help change lives.
The Castro family’s roots go back to Guadalajara in Mexico. That’s where Jorge’s parents, Jose + Maria Castro, first started their careers as restaurateurs. That’s where Jorge first discovered his love of the restaurant business. And that’s where most of the flavors + dishes at DOSALAS originated. The Castro family’s deep-rooted culture + humble beginnings in Guadalajara have led them to give back to the city that made them.
For every golden water bottle purchased, DOSALAS donates 50% of the proceeds to a charity in Guadalajara. We thank you for supporting our endeavors.
Let’s make a difference together!
