People can buy jewelry in plenty of places in Newport. But there is no place in Lincoln County like a BeJeweled sale, which will be celebrating its 10 year run of up-cycled jewelry sales on March 11 from 9 am – 3 pm, at the Embarcadero Resort, 1000 SE Bay Blvd., Newport.
To conduct their annual BeJeweled fundraiser, Food Share of Lincoln County needs your jewelry donations. All types of jewelry, in any condition, are now being accepted and all donations are tax deductible. A team of dedicated volunteers will sort through the jewelry and prepare the items for auction. Organizers say that this is the perfect time of the year to go through jewelry boxes, closets or trinket bowls to find a new home for jewelry no longer needed or worn, and at the same time contribute to a good cause and take a tax deduction.
Your once loved treasure can become someone else’s great find.
Your donation of a bracelet, necklace or ring can help feed a family for a week. The entire county benefits from the work done by Food Share of Lincoln County. Sale funds purchase food for needy families, seniors and individuals in Lincoln County through a network of partner agencies like pantries, meal sites, backpack programs, senior outreach and youth programs.
