The Surry Animal Rescue
organization posted a page on Facebook asking for ideas to raise funds for animal rescue. A consultant for Lia Sophia jewelry in Mount Airy, North Carolina, saw the ad and gave the winning suggestion of a Jewelry Party, according to Mt. Airy News.
"I'm just an animal lover," Brittany Inman, the consultant for Lia Sophia,comma who first saw the Facebook ad, told the news source.
The Jewelry Party was held at the Surrey Bank and Trust and featured pieces between $30 and $60, ranging from gold and silver necklaces and rings to bracelets and earrings.
“She is donating her proceeds that she would make at the party to Surry Animal Rescue. There are very many needy animals out there, especially with the economy. People are not able to care for their animals for whatever reason," Rhodonna Chadwell, an employee at the bank as well as a rescue volunteer, told the news source.
The Surry Animal Rescue was founded in 2001 by Linda Mooney, the organization's president, who has worked in the animal rescue field for more than 20 years, according to the group's website.
