The evening included a special appearance by Make-A-Wish recipient, Jayden.

JFC also announced donations of more than $1 million that will go to six nonprofit partners. Some of these partners have been grantees of JFC for 25 years and received more than $14 million dollars each since JFC began. This brings JFC’s total giving for the past 26 years to $62 million.

A highlight of the night was Emcee Nick Di Nieri interviewing 11-year-old Jayden, who last year had his wish to become an actor come to life. Jayden reminded the audience that sometimes we all have bad days, but we have good days too, and that is what his wish day was. JFC funds 15 wishes a year.

The event was made possible by 27 underwriters, jewelry industry donors who donated $35,000 or more.

Next year’s event will take place on June 8 in Las Vegas, and more info can be found at the JFC website, Options for all different levels of donations are available, including tribute ads and tickets to the event.
