Lobortas Classic Jewelry House's charitable activities in Canada stem from the summer auction in Leamington, which left a pleasant feeling that Charity is Luxurious! These words were taken as a slogan of the next auction, which was held in Windsor in conjunction with the charitable organization W.E.Care for Kids, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of caring for children, Mandi Quiring, and numerous sponsors.
House "Lobortas" was glad to become one of the main sponsors of this evening. Guests were given the chance not only to immerse themselves in Jewelry Art and enjoy a wide collection of unique items, but also the opportunity to become the owner of one of the 3 items that were donated as lots. Among them are a Children’s Silver Spoon, an Angel Pendant and men's cufflinks with original Ukrainian ornaments.
Together we managed to raise over 40,000 Canadian dollars in support of local children's health care.
The atmosphere of the location - the old mansion Willstead Manor gave the event the luxury and sophistication familiar to the Lobortas House.
The event was covered by several local newspapers and magazines: WINDSOR News W.E. | Care For Kids 25th anniversary charity gala showcases world renowned jeweller.
We were delighted to visit Saint Michael's Parish again. Father Tom welcomed the House team and also showed how wonderfully the gift blessed by him during last visit fits into the interior and atmosphere of the Temple.
