JFC Names Facets of Hope Honorees

Jewelers For Children, the industry charity formerly known as Jewelers Charity Fund for Children, will honor David and Sybil Yurman, founders of David Yurman of New York City and Sue E. Gove, executive vice president and COO of Zale Corp. of Dallas, TX, at its 7th Annual Facets of Hope Dinner in Las Vegas at The Bellagio on June 5, 2005.

The Yurmans and Gove agreed to serve as next year's guests of honor, which brings the responsibiltiy of helping JFC raise funds to benefit children affected by catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect. They join a list of industry leaders who have been recognized by the charity since 1999. More than $3.8 million was contributed to JFC's recipient charities during the 2004 dinner that honored Edward A. Dayoob of Fred Meyer Jewelers Inc. and Susan M. Jacques of Borsheim's Fine Jewelry & Gifts.

"Jewelers For Children is grateful to David, Sybil and Sue for their acceptance of this honor," said JFC Chairman Terry Burman, of Sterling Jewelers Inc. "Recognizing that their time is one of their most precious resources, we are indeed pleased that they will be joining our incredibly dedicated fundraising committee to strive for another record-breaking year for the industryıs charity," said Burman. "We are also very fortunate that Arthur E. Reiner [Finlay Fine Jewelry Corp.] will once again serve as vice president of fundraising to lead the Facets of Hope campaign."
