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 total weight diamond ring, valued at $1,200, which will be used for a drawing in support of the United Way’s Annual Campaign. The ring is currently on display at DuFore’s.
“We appreciate DuFore’s support of our campaign with this very generous donation,” said Melanie Trexler, executive director of the United Way. “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 ring drawing are only $1 and are available at DuFore’s Jewelers, 94 W. Second St., Oswego; your local United Way office in the HSBC bank building, 1 S. First St., Fulton; and during United Way’s Stone Soup Luncheon being held Nov. 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The ring will be on display during DuFore’s Holiday Open House to be held, Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Nov. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The drawing will be held at 11 a.m. on Dec. 24 at DuFore’s.
Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
