20TH ANNUAL FACETS OF HOPE
On Sunday June 3, 2018 Jewelers for Children held the 20th annual Facets of Hope event. We honored Jeffrey Cohen of Citizen Watch America and Bill Luth of Signet Jewelers, Ltd. The occasion was marked by visits from Abby Richins who spoke at the 2004 Facets of Hope event and Pamela Hiesler who spoke at the 2006 event. Both shared updates on their lives today. The crowd also saw a video from Paige Armstrong Omartian, who appeared at the 2005 event where she sang a single from her album she produced as part of her wish.
During the event it was announced that JFC would be donating $ 1.95 million to the charity partners in the year ahead, bringing the cumulative total since 1999 to $ 55.5 million.
Details for the 2019 event will be posted later this year.
