Jewelers for Children celebrates 12 years and announces $3 million to be donated to children’s charities

On June 6, 2010, Jewelers for Children (JFC), the industry’s charity, held the 12th Annual Facets of Hope event in Las Vegas during the JCK Show.  The charity announced intentions to donate $3 million to charity partners in the year ahead.

“In a challenging economic environment, it’s gratifying to see so many step up with so much to support Jewelers for Children,” said Edward Bridge, JFC board chair.  The organization recognized Ed Hrabak, senior vice president and general merchandise manager at Sterling, Inc., and Jonathan Goldman, CEO of Frederick Goldman, Inc., and the first board chair for Jewelers for Children starting in 1999.  The evening also included the first JFC Children’s Humanitarian Awards presented to former model Kathy Ireland and actress Jaime Pressly for their support of causes to benefit children in need.
