A breast cancer survivor solicits the help of Robbins Brothers and rock musician Donavon Frankenreiter to help make her son's engagement dream come true.

I’ve always known that I wanted my proposal to be special but never dreamed of anything like this. Everyone was so helpful and made me feel comfortable and heroic.

Last Thursday, October 28, Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Ring Store hosted a cocktail party for recently engaged couples in the heart of Tinsletown at the new W Hollywood hotel. The evening was complete with champagne, appetizers, a Robbins Brothers Diamond Spa to clean guests’ engagement rings and showcase the latest bridal and fashion jewelry, and a special performance by pro surfer and “Lovely Day” musician Donavon Frankenreiter.

The highlight of the night was when Kyle White 26, an events production manager from Chatsworth, CA, surprised his girlfriend of three years Juliet Arpaia 21, with a marriage proposal onstage just before Donavon’s performance. Kyle told Juliet they won free VIP tickets to the concert. Donavon pretended that Kyle won a free surf lesson and asked him to come on stage with his guest to accept the prize. That’s when Kyle dropped to bended knee to ask Juliet to spend forever with him. She said ‘yes’ and the audience applauded with great enthusiasm and joyful tears.

Another touching layer to this love story is the heartfelt relationship between Kyle and his mother, Valerie Kane, who has struggled with stage 3 breast cancer for the past year. After receiving a letter from Valerie asking for their support, Robbins Brothers graciously donated an engagement ring to the young couple. Both Valerie and Juliet’s mom, Angelica, knew about the surprise and were in attendance to celebrate with their newly-engaged offspring.

“Robbins Brothers exceeded my expectations and I’ll forever be grateful,” said Valerie. “At the least I was hoping to get a discount on a ring since Kyle & Juliet have been taking care of me over the past year and needed some financial help.”

“The whole night was magical and I’m still in shock,” said Kyle. “I’ve always known that I wanted my proposal to be special but never dreamed of anything like this. Everyone was so helpful and made me feel comfortable and heroic. Special thanks to Donavon and Robbins Brothers for everything! Juliet and I can’t stop smiling about it.”
