The 14 karat yellow gold ring with a ½ carat brilliant cut diamond and 12 baguette diamonds valued at $2,500 was generously donated by DuFore Jewelers in Oswego. The local business has been an active supporter of the United Way for many years, with the Christmas Eve raffle drawing a longstanding tradition many locals look forward to.
United Way Resource Development Director Stacey Morse said this year’s raffle generated a record high in ticket sales, raising more than $3,300 to support the United Way’s Annual Campaign.
“We cannot thank DuFore Jewelers enough for continuing to support the United Way’s mission of ending hunger, building successful youth, and ensuring wellness throughout Oswego County,” said Morse. “This partnership is truly a shining example of what can be accomplished when we live united.”
