JP Jewelers and the Oswego Community Youth Orchestra will make someone’s Christmas a lot brighter this year.
On December 21 a drawing will be held for a three-stone diamond necklace in white gold.
The necklace contains 1/4CT TW diamonds and retails for $349.
Each chance to win is $5 a ticket and the winner will be notified four days before Christmas.
The necklace is on display at JP Jewelers and tickets are available at JP and other local businesses.
JP Jewelers heard about the Christmas OCYO Breakfast Buffet Benefit on December 21 and not only offered this beautiful diamond necklace to raffle but also a check to offset some of the advertising costs incurred.
“James and Kevin of JP Jewelers have been a great blessing to this event and OCYO,” said Mike Callahan, PR director for OCYO. “I have seen their tremendous support for the local community and kind spirits with several groups and organizations. We can’t thank them enough for making this supersized Breakfast Buffet Benefit with Santa a real event.

The group has traditionally consisted of high school students, but middle school students are considered based on ability.
