In a special milestone marking Jewelers For Children’s (JFC) 20 years of helping children in need, artist Reena Ahluwalia is donating a spectacular original diamond painting and some limited edition prints to JFC. The 5-feet painting, The ‘Portrait of Perfection’, features a highly nuanced, hyper-realistic diamond with ultra-magnified facets. It took Reena 500-hours to complete. The painting will be auctioned at the JFC’s Facets of Hope event on June 3, in Las Vegas, NV.

“Reena has become such a big support of Jewelers for Children! Her paintings are so popular with our audiences and there is much anticipation about which of her amazing pieces will be available”, said David Rocha, executive director of JFC. “Her support has helped us reach our fundraising goals and meet our mission to help children in need.”

Giving is at the heart of all Reena Ahluwalia endeavours. Her artwork benefits Jewelers For Children (JFC) along with other beneficiaries. Each year Reena support students by providing grants, scholarships and mentor upcoming talent. Reena is a multiple award-winning jewellery designer, a coveted diamond painter and a passionate professor.

Facets of Hope gala will take place on Sunday, June 3 at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. Last year, 1,750 people attended the event. The painting will be on display during the cocktail reception starting at 6:00 p.m.  Anyone interested in presenting a reserve bid before the event can contact JFC at 212-687-2949 or info@jewelersforchildren.org.

This year’s JFC honorees include Jeffrey Cohen from Citizen Watch America and Bill Luth from Signet Jewelers, Ltd. Singer and songwriter Calum Scott will be performing at the gala, sponsored by Bulova. He was nominated for a Brit Award in the “Best Single”, which has gone platinum in five countries.

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 donated more than $ 51 million to programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect.
