Gleaming raffle prize is legacy of Beth’s fight against cystic fibrosis

Thanks to Preston Jewellers, Neal Hamilton and Corona Jewellery Company, a beautiful diamond earring and pendant set will help raise funds to fight cystic fibrosis.

The raffle is in memory of Beth Hamilton who was a tireless volunteer for Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Campbell River Chapter. She initiated a diamond raffle in 2002 as part of her effort to raise funds to find a cure for cystic fibrosis – the disease her son Michael fights everyday of his life.  To honour Beth’s commitment, her husband Neal insures the raffle continues – as Beth’s legacy. The prize this year is a gorgeous set of Canadian diamond earrings and pendant with a total weight of half carat.

Kim Stevens, manager of Prestons Jewellers said  “it is our pleasure to support this important cause – I was impressed by Beth’s efforts and want to be part of finding a solution for people with cystic fibrosis.”

Tickets are available at Preston Jewellers for $10 each.  They will also be sold at Quality Foods April 29  and 30, May 13 and 14  and June 9 and 10. The raffle is in conjunction with the Brind’Amour/ Nugent-Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Golf Classic and the draw will take place at the Dinner and Auction on Sat., June 18.   All funds raised go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Campbell River Chapter to support high quality care for people with cystic fibrosis and medical scientific research to find a cure or control for this life threatening disease.

Purchase your ticket early as there is a limited supply.
