Bring in any gold or silver jewelry that you would like to sell – old, broken, tangled, single earrings, etc. and receive cash. It’s a great way to earn holiday money! The jewelry will be weighed and processed by professionals. An offer will be made to you and you can accept and get cash or you can reject and keep your jewelry. No strings attached. As a bonus for the school, Wilton Elementary will receive 12% of the amount of gold sold. The average person at the first Gold Rush Fundraiser walked away with several hundred dollars cash! Don’t miss this opportunity to sell your old, unwanted, broken jewelry and earn cash while helping our school! Contact Kim Panciera at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
