A Sparkling Affair







Join in the fun while supporting the project!

  • Spectacular Grand Prize! Play and win a one-carat diamond from Riddle's Jewelry (must be present to play and win).

  • Door Prizes. A minimum of 20 jewelry items (valued at $40-$120 each) handcrafted by Debbie Hagen and Jennifer Kohls will be given away.

  • Puttin' for the Ritz. Who says you can't golf in Mayville in the middle of winter? We'll be setting up a putting green that will be open for a limited time during our Sparkling Affair. We haven't made it easy, but we think you will have a good shot at sinking a putt. Buy one try for $10 or three tries for $20 to win yourself or someone you love a $500 shopping spree gift certificate from Riddle's Jewelry. And don't worry if you don't sink it, we have a special consolation drawing for another $500 shopping spree from Riddle's.

  • Silent Auction. Every attendee of the Sparkling Affair will have the opportunity to bid on some of the most beautiful jewelry items handcrafted by Jennifer Kohls and Debbie Hagen. View specially made pieces and bid on them by silent auction. You may take home a beautiful piece for yourself or someone special in your life. 

  • Entertainment. Featuring special music for a special evening.

  • Refreshments. Enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.
