(December 4, 2019) ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Today, New Mexico United debuted a new artist partnership, as part of their Local Artist Series of merchandise, announced earlier this year. Local jeweler Sherry Lopez, owner of ‘Lovishly’, created three different necklace designs to benefit youth soccer in New Mexico.
“As our Local Artist Series continues to grow and prosper, we are thrilled to welcome Sherry and her brand, Lovishly, to the United family,” said CEO and majority owner of New Mexico United, Peter Trevisani. “Her mission of partnering with organizations that seek to make the world a better place is inspiring and aligns with the core of our organization.”
Lopez is a New Mexico native and mother of 10 who has found her passion in creating jewelry that gives back to causes she cares about. Each jewelry piece that she creates is paired with a related non-profit. As with all of the items in the Local Artist Series, proceeds from Lopez’s New Mexico United designs will benefit the team’s High-Performance Youth Program.
“The United symbol represents a diverse group of highly energetic and passionate fans, just as much as it represents the team itself. I am honored to, in some small way, be a part of this family that has brought excitement, hope, and unity to the state of New Mexico,” said Lopez.
Lopez’s United creations will be available for purchase starting December 5, in the NM United Team Shop, 3500 Central Avenue SE, Suite 2, Albuquerque NM
