2010 Fundraiser – Auction


Inaugural Jewels for Cures Fundraiser Raises Over €37,000

Jewels for Cures is a fundraising program to raise funds for the Cancer Clinical Research Trust and other Cancer Research Projects in Ireland.

The original fundraising program aimed to raise funds from the sale or auction of unwanted quality jewellery, gold, pieces of broken jewellery, fine art and antique or classic furniture. The fundraiser accepted donations from the public.

Members of the public became involved in a number of ways to support this ongoing event. People donated their old quality jewels, gold, diamonds, precious stones, fine art, antique or classic furniture. These items were auctioned in December 2010 and raised over. The purpose of these sales is to raise funds for the research trust. The first auction took place in the Westbury Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday 8th December.

People can donate high quality broken gold jewellery such as single earrings, single cufflinks, broken chains or other 9 or 18 carat jewellery; which will then be smelted and sold.

Donations of any size can be made on our donation page.

Finally, those who would like to get involved can organise a fundraising tea party in their workplace or in their own home.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated directly to the Cancer Clinical Research Trust and other Cancer Research projects, to assist them in finding cures for a wide range of cancers that afflict people in Ireland.
