Jewelry Party Fundraiser to benefit the Bangor Humane Society

Amanda Coburn of Riverside Jewelry Designs and Anne Reigstad of Ymir Glass Design are hosting a Jewelry Party Fundraiser to benefit the Bangor Humane Society on Friday, October 22nd from 6-8pm. The fundraiser will be held at the Jewelry Artisans of Maine Cooperative Store, 586C Main Road North in Hampden. The store will donate 20% of all sales to the Bangor Humane Society that evening.

The Jewelry Artisans of Maine Coop Store features handcrafted, unique jewelry; it is owned and run by four female local artisans and has nine local consignors as well. The selection of jewelry includes dichroic glass, copper and silver metalsmithed pieces, beading, water casting, local stones and gemstones set in silver, etched copper, and lots more.

Coburn says, "In tough economic times, non-profits such as the Bangor Humane Society are overlooked and suffer financially. I have dogs and cats, and one of each came from the Humane Society. I wouldn't trade them for the world, and I'm so glad they had such caring individuals at the Bangor Humane Society to take care of them when they were in need."


Bangor Humane Society's adoption and service fees only account for 39% of their $825,000 annual operating budget. Almost all the rest – 56%, or $462,000 needs to come from public supporters and fundraisers each year. Start your Christmas shopping early, and help support a wonderful local cause.
