Gems & Java is our largest fundraising event of the year. It provides funds for projects that empower women and promote education.
How does it work?
Throughout the year, we receive donations of gently used purses, jewelry and fashion scarves for this event. Guests are invited to enjoy coffee and delicious desserts while listening to the latest updates from Mothers with a Heart for Ethiopia. Each attendee chooses a complimentary purse, scarf or piece of jewelry. Guests are invited to purchase additional pieces for a donation (suggestion of no less than $5 per piece). Guests are also invited to bid on silent auction items, including many high-end pieces kindly donated by our friends and sponsors.
