Here at Confer's Jewelers we LOVE our community, and so we LOVE to support our community. One of the ways we try to support our community is by donating to various local, and sometimes not so local, charities and needs. All through the year you, our clients and friends, present us with opportunities to get involved by either attending an event or donating to incredible causes. Below you will find a list of some of the charities and events that we have taken part in. We hope that maybe we will see you there or that you will be the big winner of one of our donations :)!!
This is just a small selection of some of the charitable opportunies available, we hope to keep this list up to date as new opportunities arise.
