After Tallying up All the Donations, AGTA GemFair™ Attendees Donated Over $4,000 to Special Olympics Arizona!

A big thank you goes out to Picup Media for supplying their GemLightboxes and GemLoupes, and to all of our incredible attendees that donated to support the Special Olympics Arizona Raffle at the AGTA GemFair™ Tucson. We are happy to announce that we raised over $4,000 and are so thankful for everything that Special Olympics Arizona does!

AGTA has sponsored a charitable event for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics Arizona for many years. But with the pandemic forcing us to cancel all social gatherings, we were not able to hold an event for 2022. 

In lieu of the 5k, we worked together with Picup Media to put together a raffle to continue our support of the Special Olympics Arizona.

Here are the winners of the raffle:

  • Joshua Nassi, 100% Natural, Ltd.
  • Danielle Barber, Suna Bros.
  • Mark Lassater, The Clam Shell
  • Pini Pinchasi, Harpaz Gem, Inc. dba Tamir
  • Tali Nay, GIA

Can’t wait to see you all in Tucson next year for the Scotty Woodward Classic 5k!
