OSWEGO, NY – The United Way of Greater Oswego County and DuFore’s for Diamonds will be making one lucky person’s Christmas extra special this year.
DuFore’s has donated a half-carat diamond solitaire pendant, valued at $1,500, which will be used for a drawing in support of the United Way’s Annual Campaign.
The pendant is currently on display at DuFore’s.
“We appreciate DuFore’s support of our campaign with this very generous donation,” said executive director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County, Melanie Trexler. “It’s wonderful to see small businesses come forward and show their concern for the community by helping their local United Way. The support that we receive from community minded businesses such as DuFore’s Jewelers plays an important part in allowing us to meet our goals and continue to offer financial support to the many member agency programs that mean so much to so many in our county.”
Tickets for the diamond pendant drawing are only $1 and are available at DuFore’s Jewelers, 94 W. Second St. or at the United Way office in the HSBC bank building, 1 S. First St., Fulton.
Dufore’s will hold a holiday open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 13 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 14.
The drawing will be held at 11 a.m. on Dec. 24 at DuFore’s.
