It is a true partnership that ultimately benefits the Children of the Clariden School by ensuring a constant source of support for the many unique programs that are offered there. — Pieter Andries
Southlake, TX (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
Pieter Andries, certified gemologist and founder of Pieter Andries, Creators of Fine Jewelry based in Southlake, was honored to sponsor The Clariden School of Southlake’s annual auction on February 23rd, donating two custom-designed pendants exclusively for the event.
Andries has been a longtime supporter of The Clariden School. In March of 2011, Andries hosted a six-course fundraising dinner in the custom jewelry store’s showroom. He also donated a gemstone, acquired from premier gemstone cutter, Atelier Munsteiner, to benefit The Clariden School in May, 2012. Last July, students of The Clariden School were invited to the store for the 2nd Annual Rock Hunt, where they were given the opportunity to learn about gemology from expert jeweler, Andries himself.
The Clariden School 19th Annual Auction and Gala was held at the DFW Marriott Solana on February 23, 2013. The theme was “Together Today, Prepared for Tomorrow” with Boots and Bling attire. For this year’s auction, Andries planned to create a special, personalized birthstone pendant with a chain designed and created in 18k white gold for donation as an auction item. On the night of the event, Andries surprised the audience with an offer to make two pendants. The items raised $12,000 for The Clariden School.
"The longevity of our partnership with the Clariden School is largely due to the enthusiasm of the teachers and parent volunteers involved,” said Andries, “Together we can ensure a successful fundraising event for the school and continued success for Pieter Andries. It is a true partnership that ultimately benefits the Children of the Clariden School by ensuring a constant source of support for the many unique programs that are offered there".
The Clariden School is a unique private school serving children from age three through 12th grade. The Clariden School was established in 1986 as an AMI Montessori school. The school moved from its first location in Dallas to Southlake over 13 years ago.
