I had the great honor of accompanying Rona K of Rona K Corp to the Facets of Hope Dinner honoring the 10th anniversary of Jewelers for Children Organization at the Venetian Hotel during the annual JCK Jewelry Show. This dinner was hosted by two honorees (Allen Brill – Rolex Watch USA and Peter Engel – Fred Meyer Jewelers). Both gave amazing speeches about how this industry has such heart and gives back to the children in need. The speeches left many teary-eyed, as special guests, young children, who JFC had helped with financial support, came to the stage to share their special, unique story of survival, only because of St Jude’s Hospital and the monies given by this room full of Jewelers with a heart.
Jewelers For Children was founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need. Since its inception, JFC has donated nearly $28 million to programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse, or neglect through charity partners St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and the National CASA Association. This nationwide success is due to the continuing generosity of jewelry trade organizations, jewelry and watch manufacturing companies, jewelry retail stores, individual jewelry professionals, and jewelry consumers. JFC also provides support to the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, the Jason Program, the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, Autism Speaks and the Santa-America Fund.
What shined through at this event was not only the number of attendees (2,500 in all), but each and every company represented here had donated thousands of dollars to children in need without hesitation. The cost for this gala event was $500 per person to attend, with the entire amount going to the charities that JFC supports.
During the annual JCK Jewelry show, Rona K has introduced a new line of kids, the long anticipated “The Cuddles” kids. This is a must for any Mom, or Grandma’s Charm Bracelet. Be sure to stop by and visit our showroom, where you will be able to view the collection, now available in Sterling Silver, Gold-Plate or 14K Yellow or 14K White Gold. For those that know “The Kids”, this addition gives your “Kids” so much personality, charm, and dimension!
Rona created a very special lapel pin with the JFC logo and the “`10 Years” represented on the kids clothing and donated this lapel pin to each attendant of the gala event. Rona also donates her very special “The Kids” 14K Gold Kid Charms to the kids at St Jude’s Hospital to give to their Mom’s as gifts.
Raffle tickets were sold during the evening for $20/ticket, with the entire amount donated to the charities that JFC supports. Many companies donated prizes to be raffled at the end of the evening, ranging from Rolex Watches, Phillip Stein Diamond Studded Watches, Special Limited VW Bug Car, a 7 day Caribbean Princess Cruise, Tour of Yankee Stadium, and many others fabulous items. I was fortunate enough to be one of the winners (I won the Diamond Studded Philip Stein Watch)
