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.
