North Carolina Jewelers Association Raises 10K for Victory Junction

The NCJA held their ROCK SOLID educational event, along with the SJO Jewelry Show, at the beautiful Ballantyne Resort in Charlotte, NC Feb 25-27.

Stores throughout the southeast were welcomed to experience jewelry shopping, education, fun and friendship.

A two part education seminar was attended by enthusiastic jewelers Sunday morning. It was led by the best, Kate Peterson (Performance Concepts) and Terry Chandler (Diamond Council of America).

The NCJA held a fun Live Auction Event Sunday night to raise money for Victory Junction! A Richard Petty Family camp created for kids who have disabilities. The auction was led by Mr. Petty’s private auctioneer.

Everyone had fun outbidding one another for Petty memorabilia, as well as, dozens of beautiful donations. Even our esteemed sales reps, Steve Summerlin, Tom Schlotman and Dennis Williams donated a dinner and fun evening at Rays on the River in Atlanta. The lucky winner will join them at the next Atlanta Jewelry Show.

After all was said and done, over $10K was raised for the Kids!

Mr. Petty was thrilled to accept the check at a presentation held at his Petty Garage on April 15. Board members Oz Hefner and Heather Lewis attended.
