Albuquerque, NM, September 29, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Relios, America’s largest manufacturer of authentic American-made designer jewelry – based right here in New Mexico - is stepping up to lend support in the fight against Breast Cancer. The company is donating a designer necklace, pendant and earring ensemble for auction at this year’s 7th Annual LLGA/Comcast Rally for the Cure event in Santa Fe. The handcrafted pieces of genuine Pink Rhodochrosite and Sterling Silver are part of a Relios signature jewelry collection called “Desert Blush”.
“The color pink signifies breast cancer support, so this ensemble is a perfect representation of what this event is all about”, says Carolyn Pollack Relios Designer and Vice-President. “We’re (Relios) proud to be contributing to an effort that helps people whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. This is something we feel very strongly about.”
Generous community support for this tournament over the past six years has helped raise nearly 90-thousand dollars for Susan G. Komen for the Cure - the world’s largest grassroots movement of breast cancer survivors and activists. This year’s event, scheduled for October 6th at the Hilton of Santa Fe, also includes food and live entertainment, and then wraps up with the charity golf tournament at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe on Sunday, October 7th.
“We’re thrilled that Relios is part of this year’s event”, says Holly Spellman, Co-Chair for the “Ladies of the Links Golf Association” (LLGA)/Comcast Rally for the Cure. “The jewelry is a beautiful addition to our collection of auction items, and we’re so grateful for their generous support”.
In addition to assisting with this year’s LLGA/Comcast Rally for the Cure event, Relios is also sponsoring a number of other Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Support events around the world:
• Relios jewelry donation to QVC London’s annual Breast Cancer Care event – Breast Cancer Fashion Show Fundraiser, broadcast live October 3rd
• Carolyn Pollack co-captains one of many 3-day Breast Cancer Walks taking place throughout U.S. to raise awareness and funds for research October 5th – 7th
