Chapel Hills Jewelry Celebrates 25 Years
To say that Chapel Hills Jewelry is accomplished is an understatement. This local, family-owned jewelry store, a staple in its community, spoils us with beautiful diamond, gemstone, and custom-made pieces, and this year they hit a milestone.
The Tesauro family hosted their 25th Anniversary soiree on Saturday, March 29 that The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium and Maniac was honored to attend.
The scene was spectacular. The elaborate and beyond beautiful backdrop of exotic vegetation, wildlife and colorful sea creatures took a backseat to the lively crowd. Guests arrived in flocks and were each dressed to the nines in tailored suits and show-stopping dresses. Smiling faces and warm welcomes greeted guests, who were led to the red carpet to pose for photos.
Food and drinks were plentiful with an open bar and hors d’oeuvres provided by A Taste of the Wild Catering. Music played throughout the venue where people danced to sounds from DJ Rockin Rob and the Dr. Zoot band. Perhaps the main attraction was the incredibly successful silent auction, which was filled with must-have pieces including diamond jewelry and signed sports memorabilia. Many organizations and businesses donated items for the auction and spotlight vendors included Maurice Lacroix, Victor Velyan, Simon G, and Samuel Baron Clothiers.
Nearly 300 people came to celebrate Chapel Hills Jewelry and their quarter century anniversary. The evening was also about raising awareness and money for charity. Overall the event raised an astonishing $40,000 for The Brain Aneurysm Foundation, a charity near to the Tesauro family’s heart. With 25 years under their belt and a hard-working kids, Lauren and Jonathan, to take on the family business in the future, it’s safe to say that Chapel Hills Jewelry is here to stay. We couldn’t be happier about that. Stop by Chapel Hills Jewelry, located at 503 Freeport Road, and check out their website for a full list of designers and brands that they carry.
