Darlene Verheyen, aka, Hollywood's nickname came about from her style - can we be surprised? She walked into her granddaughter, Caroline's, junior high basketball game wearing a bedazzled shirt and pants. Caroline's teammates coined the name Hollywood, and it has stuck ever since.
Hollywood is the mom of six kids, seventeen grandkids, and nine great-grandkids.
We thought she needed a little debut into Springfield style. Julia Evans, the creator and maker of Jule's Jewels teamed up with Holllywood to make this collection to transition us into fall.
In honor of her late husband, Richard Verheyen, a portion of the proceeds of the Hollywood Collection will go to Honor Flight of the Ozarks, a not-for-profit organization created solely to honor America’s Veterans for their many sacrifices.
