May 31, 2012, Washington, D.C.  – The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation will join Jewelers for Children (JFC) and other charities to commemorate the jewelry industry’s charitable efforts on behalf of children throughout the year.

Jewelers for Children’s 14th annual Facets of Hope dinner will be held on Sunday, June 3, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

JFC, a charitable organization comprised of businesses and individuals in the jewelry and watch industries, has contributed more than $8.1 million to the Foundation’s programmatic and research work since 1999.
