Pearl necklace raffle to benefit Girl Scouts

By Staff | Sep 11, 2015

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts’ highest award the Gold Award the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s capital is raffling a beautiful 16 inch, 14-karat white gold necklace with station pearls, valued at $395. Donated by Christian Caine Jewelers of Shepherdstown, this necklace commemorates the sale by the Girl Scouts’ founder — Juliette Gordon Low — of her own wedding pearls to fund the beginnings of the Girl Scout movement in 1912.

Raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each or six for $25 through the local Girl Scout office, 304-263-8833; or at Depot Florist or Minghinis’ General Contractors in Martinsburg. They may also be purchased at the door on the day of the annual Women of Distinction luncheon, to be held this year at the Martinsburg Holiday Inn on Oct. 14. Purchaser does not need to be present at the luncheon to win the necklace. All proceeds will benefit the Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship Fund.
