A big shout-out to the dedicated 2015 Team Coast participants who diligently raised funds, trained hard and set their alarms to awake before dawn to run and walk the “Rings of Strength” 3.6 mile early morning event preceding the long days at the busy JCK show:
Total Amount raised by Team Coast: $3,500
Total Amount raised by the Rings of Strength Event: $53,190 (as of June 4, 2015)
“Coast Diamond was honored to once again be a sponsor for JFC’s Rings of Strength,” said Jay Gilbert, CEO of Coast Diamond. “Our hearts go out to all of the children and their families who battle challenges unfamiliar to most of us, and we are humbled by their strength and tenacity to keep fighting the good fight.”
Jay Gilbert matched the first $1,700 that Team Coast raised as of the date of the event with his own contribution of $1,700. Generosity and philanthropy are evident at this Los Angeles jewelry designer’s office!
