Southlake, TX (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
A longtime support of Metroport Meals on Wheels (MMOW), a grassroots organization that serves as an advocate for elderly or chronically ill individuals through home-delivered meals and other support services, Pieter Andries Fine Jewelry was a sponsor of the organization’s 20th Annual Golf Tournament June 13 at Trophy Club Country Club. In addition to sponsoring the pre-tournament Tee-Off Dinner and two hole-in-one contests during the tournament, the Southlake fine jewelry store donated a custom-designed pendant for the fundraising auction held June 12 at Marriott Solana.
Designed and created by Pieter Andries especially for the 2011 Tee-Off Dinner and Auction, the “Circle of Friends” pendant is made in 14K yellow and white gold with 49 brilliant cut diamonds with a total weight of 1.07CT. Andries also added special touches to the design which include a commemorate engraving around the outer edge of the pendent, and a decorative white gold “bowl” in the center, to serve as a subtle reminder of the precious gift the wearer has given to MMOW. A yellow gold chain was added to complete the look which can be worn with or without the pendant. The one-of-a-kind creation is valued at $7500.00.
“Metroport Meals on Wheels does so many amazing things to help seniors in Northeast Tarrant County that I felt it only appropriate to create an equally amazing piece of jewelry to commemorate its efforts,” says Andries, a certified gemologist and president of the Southlake-based custom jewelry store. “We are honored to contribute an item that will help the organization raise money for its much needed programs.”
Metroport Meals On Wheels, Inc. is a nonprofit organization which organizes volunteers to deliver hot lunches to homes of individuals who are elderly, frail, chronically ill or homebound. Although most program participants receive meals on an on-going basis, MMOW helps during periods when someone needs temporary or short-term assistance.
