Sep 13th, 2018

FAIRLAWN — ACCESS Inc., a homeless shelter for women and children, will host its third annual fundraiser, The Jewelry Box, presented by Fred Martin Superstore, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Akron-Fairlawn, located at 3150 W. Market St. Event officials said more than 20,000 pieces of donated jewelry cleaned by Signet Jewelers will be available for $5 per piece. A Happy Hour Sale follows from 6 to 8 p.m., with jewelry sold for $1 a piece, and presented with local fashion and beauty bloggers offering styling advice and tips, a DJ, specialty drink and desserts.

Tickets are $25 and available at under “Events.”

Also, a VIP party on Nov. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. will includes wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres, as well as live music. The cost is $75, with tickets available at the above website.

Shoppers from a past event are shown above.

Event officials said all proceeds will benefit ACCESS and its community commitment to provide a holistic, safe and supportive environment to women and children in its shelter.

“It’s an absolutely unforgettable day and our Jewelry Box shoppers know that every time a piece of jewelry is worn from this event, that it’s not just a necklace or a bracelet. It’s a symbol of gratitude, empowerment and the commitment we all share to serve families in need in our community,” said Lynn Budnick, executive director of ACCESS.

To participate in the event, contact Stephanie Zelasko at 330-376-0997, ext. 208, or visit the website.
