Smythe & Cross was among the 23 downtown Los Altos retailers that contributed a portion of their sales Thursday to help the 100 Women Charitable Foundation.

Headed by President Khatchig Jingirian Jr., left, the Main Street jewelry store donated 10 percent of its sales to the Los Altos-based nonprofit, which provides grants and assistance to organizations working to resolve social issues critical to women. The foundation, formed in 2006, contributed more than $150,000 last year to organizations like Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence and InnVision, among others.

Other participating merchants included Adventure Toys & Teachers’ Supplies, Alys Grace, Apricot Lane, Atelier Gray, Chico’s, Cover Story, Cranberry Scoop, Davino Florist, Fina, First and Main Sports Lounge, Gitane, Gourmet Works, JB&B Jewelers, Know Knew Books, Kula Sweet, Linden Tree Books, Nature Gallery, Opa, Paperwhirl, Pendleton, Present and Therapy.
