We’re getting ready for the second annual Diamonds and Dancing event!

Our second annual Diamonds and Dancing event is coming right up. It will be held on October 19th at 6:30 pm at the Chateau Elan. This year’s theme is Havana Nights, so wear white linens or a brightly colored dress and top off the ensemble with a fedora!

What is Diamonds and Dancing?

Diamonds and Dancing is a dinner and silent auction to benefit the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter. The proceeds from the event, which will feature a raffle courtesy of our friends at Tara Fine Jewelry, will help us further our mission of helping homeless children and their mothers, as well as young women aging out of the foster system at 18.

At Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, we provide mothers with the support they need to create a life plan to help them get back on their feet. We also provide a place of refuge for these mothers and their children. We strive to both take care of the kids by providing for their physical, educational, and emotional needs and help the moms by providing resources to help them create action plans.

We couldn’t do what we do without the help and support we receive from the community – and the attendees of events like Diamonds and Dancing. We’re so grateful to everyone who lends a hand to our cause!

Tickets for Diamonds and Dancing.

You can get tickets for the event here. They are $125 each or $1,200 for a table of ten.

We would love to see you at the event. We’ll be in out finest fedoras and white linens!

The Tara Fine Jewelry Raffle.

The fun doesn’t stop with the dinner and dancing!

Our very generous friends at Tara Fine Jewelry have donated a pair of gorgeous Forevermark diamond earrings, valued at $11,000 for a raffle. Someone will be leaving the event as the owner of these lovely diamond earrings! Raffle tickets are $100 each, and you can purchase them here. Please note that you must be present at the event to claim the earrings.

(And a big thank you to Tara Fine Jewelry for the donation!)
