LACONIA – Sawyers Jewelry has donated a piece of finely-crafted 14 karat jewelry to be auctioned off at the New Hampshire Humane Society's annual signature fundraising event, Paws for a Cause Auction, which will take place Aug. 11, at Church Landing in Meredith.
"We're very excited about this year's Auction, it's always a wonderful evening with great supporters of the New Hampshire Humane Society," said Marylee Gorham, executive director of New Hampshire Humane Society. "Local businesses such as Sawyers Jewelry see the need and benefit to having the New Hampshire Humane Society in the community, and make substantial donations to assist the animals; of which we are very grateful."
Robert Sawyer, owner of Sawyers Jewelry, said, "We are proud to support non-profits like the New Hampshire Humane Society and on behalf of the staff of Sawyers Jewelry and our four legged friends, Joey, Pippin, and Daisy, we are pleased to be able help."
The piece is a Denny Wong designed, 14k white and yellow gold "Eagle in an Egg" pendant, featuring diamond eyes on the baby eagle and displays gracefully from an 18 inch, yellow gold wheat chain with a retail value of $1,495. If you'd like to view the necklace before bidding at the Paws for a Cause auction, visit Sawyers Jewelry. Main Street Laconia, or see pictures online at nhhumane.org or sawyersjewelry.com.
