Philadelphia PA (Vocus) June 30, 2010
Dress for Success Philadelphia will hold its second annual Diamonds and Denim Summerfest on July 26, 2010 at the Water Works Restaurant and Lounge in honor of its second year of operation in the Greater Philadelphia region and to benefit its clients. The highlight of the evening will be the legendary Diamond, Denim and Destination Dig with Zales as the exclusive diamond sponsor, according to Ellen Freda, executive director for Dress for Success Philadelphia.
This year guests will have the opportunity to win denim jeans, or a hospitality related gift, such as dinner at a restaurant or a hotel stay, in addition to diamonds, in the new Diamond, Denim and Destinations Dig. For just $10 a scoop, or three scoops for $25, each guest will have the opportunity to dig in the sand box to find a numbered stone, which will correspond to the winning diamond gift. Any unclaimed diamonds will be included in the live auction, which will cap off the evening’s event. Denim and travel gifts can be won by scooping up a denim or travel token in the sand.
Guests have an additional chance to win Zales diamonds earrings through a $5 per ticket raffle. Tickets can be purchased from Dress for Success Philadelphia board members now through the evening’s event. Two winning tickets will be drawn on July 26, and each winner will receive a pair of diamond earrings from Zales. Ticket purchasers do not need to be present to win.
The evening’s summerfest begins at 5:30 p.m. and includes a silent auction, the Diamond, Denim and Destination Dig, and a live auction. Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and islands of elegant dining cuisine will be available throughout the evening.
Zales, The Hotel Palomar Philadelphia, ARAMARK, PECO, UPS, and Stradley Ronon have signed on as sponsors to date.
