Troy, MI--It was a busy September day. Hurricane Irma had hammered the Caribbean and a good deal of Florida. Centurion South Beach's venue was damaged by the storm. Children all over the Caribbean were already facing dangerous conditions, damage and devastation to their lives.
A call and an email comes in from Randy Cole, CEO of Diamond Vault of Troy. He wants to help. He is ready to donate a Fendi Watch and two Faber Castel Pens to a raffle we can run in South Beach to raise money for the victims, but even without our show venue, we agree to do the charitable effort 100% online. Randy suggests Samaritan's Purse, a charity with a lot of support systems in the Caribbean. We agree to contact David Rocha, executive director of Jewelers for Children, who immediately agrees Samaritan's Purse is a great cause.
Donate Money, Items.
Centurion decides to add two round trip tickets up to $500 to Randy's Raffle Prizes for travel to and from Centurion 2018 in Scottsdale.
