Worthmore Jewelers raises $2,879 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta at Made in America Bash

On Saturday, June 28, local jewelry store Worthmore Jewelers and internationally acclaimed watch and leather goods brand Shinola teamed up to host the Made in America Bash — an all-day public entertainment and shopping event held at Worthmore’s Midtown location. All proceeds from raffle ticket purchases, as well as 10 percent of all other sales made that day, amounted to a donation of $2,879 that was presented to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.

The Made in America Bash featured the largest selection of Shinola watches outside of their flagship store in Detroit, complimentary leather embossing for all Shinola purchases, raffle prizes worth up to $550, a food truck, complementary drinks, music, and face painting.

The event’s success is no surprise as it received nods from Scoutmob, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, CBS Better Mornings Atlanta, AXS.com, and other local media outlets.

Worthmore Jewelers founder and owner, Harris Botnick, said Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta was the perfect beneficiary fit for the Made in America Bash.

“As a small local retailer, we at Worthmore rely on the idea of shopping locally and investing in one’s own community — and even as an international brand, Shinola promotes these same values by keeping all manufacturing jobs in their home city of Detroit to help the local economy. Ultimately, this is the same idea surrounding the Boys & Girls Clubs,” asserts Botnick. “They actually do some of the most important community investment work by investing in the children of metro Atlanta.”
