Once again, the highlight of the evening will be the raffle drawing of a beautifully hand-crafted ring designed by Hononegah students in the jewelry design class taught by Jennifer Decker and assisted by Kevin Mueller and his staff at the Gem Shop in Rockton who donated the materials and helped the students complete this dazzling project! This year’s design is a 14k Rose Gold Vintage-Inspired Ring showcasing a 0.75ct Oval Imperial Topaz with a Diamond Halo. This ring has a retail value of $1100. The monies raised from this annual raffle go to fund a scholarship in memory of Jan Modersohn who was the village clerk from 1991-2009 and a true advocate for the area youth. Tickets for this raffle, which are 6 for $20, can be purchased at the Gem Shop or on our website below. This raffle is open to the public.
