The turnout was fantastic, and attendees had a wonderful time, while supporting a great cause. Honored guests sipped champagne while browsing an eclectic collection of exquisite estate jewelry, vivid gemstones, pave set pendants and diamond-by-the-yard jewelry pieces, shopping side by side with the Cole Sisters.

As the evening progressed, Raymond Lee Jewelers took a moment to unveil the Nat King Cole Generation Hope Signature Pendant, designed for the NKC Generation Hope Foundation. The Diamond Horn Signature Pendant was greatly appreciated and adored by the Cole Twins, in addition to many of the evening’s guests.

This inspiring design pays a great deal of honor and homage to the talented, musical legend of the great Nat King Cole. The diamond embedded sculpted classic horn pendant was designed by Richard Resnik, our Professional Custom Jewelry Designer at Raymond Lee Jewelers.

In addition to covering this Fundraiser Event for the Nat King Cole Generation Hope Foundation, I was also the liaison between the Cole sisters and Raymond Lee Jewelers President, Jeff Josephson. 

I worked directly with Richard, the in-house designer, to develop a signature pendant in support of the event, which turned out to be a smashing success. 

Celebrity sightings were had. Raymond Lee Jewelers was featured in the Sun Sentinel for the “noteworthy” celebration. Over $50,000 was raised for Generation Hope to keep music in the classroom. 

The Event helped to establish a positive presence in the community for Raymond Lee Jewelers, in addition to sparking word of mouth endorsements from attendees and garnering high engagement and interaction from the RLJ online networks.
