Jewelers for Children will hold the 21st Annual Facets of Hope event on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the Venetian Las Vegas, in Las Vegas, NV, during the jewellery market week.   The 2019 edition will mark a return to the Venetian Las Vegas, along with the move of the JCK Show to the Sands Expo Center.  Judy Fisher, Senior Vice President of Merchandising for Reeds Jewelers and David Bonaparte, President and CEO of Jewelers of America, Inc. have agreed to serve as honourees. 

The event will celebrate the success of JFC's fund raising efforts for the year and commitments to the charity partners will be announced.   In 2018, nearly 1,650 industry guests attended during the event.   Both Fisher and Bonaparte have agreed to serve as guests of honour at the event with the responsibility of assisting JFC in raising funds to benefit children who are the victims of catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect. 

“Dave and Judy truly represent the finest of our industry, said Pamela Mortensen JFC Board Chair.  We are fortunate to have them both serving as honorees and assisting us in raising funds to help the children who need it the most. ”

The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. on the fourth level of the hotel with cocktails, followed by dinner and the program beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Anyone interested in attending or sponsoring can contact JFC at (212) 687-2949 or info@jewelersforchildren.org.  Details and participation forms are available at the JFC website, www.jewelersforchildren.org.  

Jewelers for Children was founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewellery industry with the mission of helping children in need. Since its inception, JFC has raised more than $ 55 million for programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect through our charity partners St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Make-A-Wish® America, and the National CASA Association.  JFC also provides support to Make-A-Wish® International, and the Santa-America Fund.
