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 ladies’ diamond ring valued at $1,200, which will be used for a drawing in support of the United Way’s Annual Campaign. The diamond ring is currently on display at DuFore’s.
“We appreciate DuFore’s support of our campaign with this very generous donation,” said 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. Their generosity is excellent example of the theme of this year’s annual campaign, it is our community, and its personal.”
Tickets for the diamond ring drawing are only $1 each or six for $5 and are available at DuFore’s Jewelers, 94 W. Second St., in Oswego, your local United Way office in the Community Bank building, 1 S. First St., in Fulton, and during United Way’s Stone Soup Luncheon being held November 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Parish Center, West First Street in Oswego.
The drawing will be held at 11 a.m. on December 24 at DuFore’s.
Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
