Birchbox staffer Andrew with his girlfriend Jillian.
Get ready for the cutest story ever: our community associate Andrew and his girlfriend, Jillian, might be getting engaged on live TV today! The couple is participating in the Michael C. Fina Dash for a Diamond and a Cure, a scavenger hunt and race where contestants can win a $20,000 diamond engagement ring, and also help raise awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Andrew and Jillian are racing around Manhattan this morning, chasing after a Tacori ring plus a slew of other wedding-related prizes. We’ve got our fingers crossed for them! Check back on Monday to find out if they won. How’s that for a heartwarming story to kick off your weekend?
Update: After chasing 20 clues around all of manhattan in 5 cabs, sadly Andrew and Jillian did not win the diamond engagement ring. They did come in 4th out of 70 teams and got an excellent workout running around the city all day!
