(RICHMOND, Va.) - Last month, VCU Massey Cancer Center held it’s annual Women & Wellness program at the historic Jefferson Hotel. With over 1000 supporters attending the sold-out breakfast and lunch programs, the event raised over $180,000 for the Cancer Center, including $14,500 raised by the first Jewels for a Cure Raffle.
The raffle featured a dozen pieces of fine jewelry and watches. Each piece – valued at $1,500 – was donated by a different Richmond area jeweler: Adolf Jewelers, Carreras Ltd., Charles Schwarzschild, Inc., Cheryl Fornash Jewelers, Cowardin’s Jewelers, Davis Jewelry, Dransfield Jewelers, Jack Kreuter Jewelers, Fink’s Jewelers, MacLaren Jewelers, Schwarzschild Jewelers and Victoria Charles Jewellery.
Word is that the Jewels for a Cure Raffle was so well received that it will become an annual part of the Women & Wellness event.
