Kerry Washington has been all over the place lately. Her fashion is always impeccable and her heart is always in the right place, which is why she flew out to Las Vegas this past weekend to present Efraim Grinberg, the Movado Group Chairman and CEO, with the Facets of Hope Award.
“It is an honor to present this evening’s award to Efraim Grinberg,” stated Kerry Washington. “I commend Efraim for his enduring support of Jewelers for Children and for selflessly donating his time, energy and resources to benefit the children who are served by this important charity.”
This important organization was founded in 1999 by the US jewelry industry to help children in need. The annual gala traditionally culminates with the JFC’s fundraising efforts for the year and honors prominent industry leaders. To date, JFC has raised more than $43 million.
“We are so grateful to honor Efraim Grinberg, Chairman and CEO of Movado Group at tonight’s gala celebration, said Peter Engel, Board Chairman, Jewelers for Children. “Efraim has been an active participant in JFC since 2002 and was responsible for helping to raise funds to benefit children who are the victims of catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect. He has served on the JFC Executive Committee as Vice President of Marketing, Treasurer and on the Fundraising Committee since the charity’s inception in 1999. Through his extraordinary commitment, Efraim has made a significant impact on the organization’s mission to fund programs that support countless children in need.”
JFC strives to involve industry partners to promote good works through charity partners – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Make-A-Wish America®, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA Association. JFC also provides support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation International and the Santa-America Fund. This nationwide success is due to the continuing generosity of jewelry trade organizations, jewelry and watch manufacturing companies, jewelry retail stores, individual jewelry professionals, and jewelry consumers.
