May 31, 2013, Washington, D.C.  – The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation will join Jewelers for Children (JFC) and Legacy Charity Partners to commemorate the jewelry industry’s charitable efforts on behalf of children throughout the year.

Jewelers for Children’s 15th annual Facets of Hope dinner will be held on Sunday, June 2, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
JFC, a charitable organization comprised of businesses and individuals in the jewelry and watch industries, has contributed more than $8.5 million to the Foundation’s programmatic and research work since 1999.

For more than a decade, JFC has supported children and families around the world through major contributions to pediatric-focused initiatives. By investing more than $40 million in organizations like the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, JFC ensures that children affected by illness, abuse, or neglect have the opportunity to lead healthy and happy lives.

The Foundation is proud to continue this longstanding relationship with JFC, which has helped advance the cause of eliminating HIV and AIDS in children around the world.
