We couldn't do Gems & Java without the help of our wonderful sponsors. If you were impressed by the fact that we raised more than $80,000 at our 2017 event, know that our sponsors played a key role.
A.P. Hurley Construction Ltd. has been a major sponsor of Gems & Java for several years now, and 2017 was no exception.
Owner and president Tony Hurley said his company likes to support Mothers with a Heart for Ethiopia's signature fundraiser because it raises money for such important work.
"I think it's a really good cause," Tony said.
Though he's never been to Gems & Java, Tony has sponsored the event for four years. He got involved thanks to founder Shelley Green, who told him all about the work of Mothers with a Heart for Ethiopia
"It does a lot of good for people, it helps them and their kids," he said.
Thanks to Tony and our other sponsors, Mothers with a Heart for Ethiopia is able to direct its funds to projects that impact women, children, and education in Ethiopia. Thank you so much for your contributions, A.P. Hurley!
