TAMPA, FL – Continental Wholesale Diamonds formerly Continental Jewelry is proud to support GFWC Tampa Woman’s Club and join in the success of Fashionollia 66 as the title sponsor. The event will be held at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel on Saturday, March 29, 2014, starting at 10:00 am.

This marks the one year anniversary of the famous “sip heard round the world” by Tampa grandmother Miriam Tucker. Ms. Tucker accidentally swallowed the $5,000 diamond donated by Continental Wholesale Diamonds in her champagne flute at last year’s fundraiser. The news story was picked up worldwide and generated over one million Google search results. Ms. Tucker even appeared on the David Letterman Show in New York. In honor of Miriam’s sip, Continental Wholesale Diamonds created and presented the first champagne flute charm with a diamond in it to her.

Fashionollia 66 will benefit Bridging Freedom Restoring Stolen Childhoods. Bridging Freedom’s mission is to combat the sex-trafficking of minors bringing restoration to those rescued and victim prevention to those they reach with their message. They educate the community and work with partnering organizations to increase awareness about this horrendous issue. They are also working to build what will be Florida’s first therapeutic safe home to provide long-term, comprehensive care to these victims in a secure environment.

Fashionollia 66 will provide an exciting opportunity to support and engage with the Bridging Freedom Restoring Stolen Childhoods program, shop at local vendor tables, enjoy a gourmet lunch, and view current fashions provided by Dillard’s Department Store and modeled by local celebrities.
