DOWNTOWN JEWELRY STORE ONCE AGAIN AIMS TO ‘KICKBACK TO THE COMMUNITY’, URGES SHOPPERS TO GET IN THE GAME

Written by Matt Davis on August 14, 2019. Posted in News/Weather

A jewelry store in downtown Rome aims to ‘kick back’ the proceeds from an auction of fine jewelry to local charities and is in search of some team players from around the community to get in the game.

Ford, Gittings and Kane’s annual ‘Kickback to the Community’ begins today and continues through Saturday, August 24th at 2 pm.  The funds raised in the 2019 silent auction of fine jewelry will benefit Mission IS Possible, Brighter Birthdays and the Free Clinic of Rome.  Bid cards may be obtained at a cost of $10 each from the store, located at 312 Broad Street, and from those three non-profits.  Proceeds from the sale of bid cards will go directly to the charity of the bidders’ choice. This year’s beneficiaries will also receive 10 percent of the proceeds from each item sold in the auction.  Those who participate in the auction have the option to ‘buy it now’ if they hope to avert a risk of not being the highest bidder on a particular item. 

Jan Ferguson, spokeswoman for Ford, Gittings and Kane, says that ‘Kickback to the Community’ has taken place every August for more than a decade. It is the store’s way of extending care and concern to the community. 

Renee Blackburn, Director of the Free Clinic, asserts that she is ‘amazed’ by the supportive nature of Rome and Floyd County residents, as evidenced by “Kickback”. 

The three main beneficiaries of ‘Kickback to the Community’ for 2019 were chosen by customers of the jewelry store.  Shoppers may ‘write in’ a charity of their choice if they want their donation to go to an organization other than those three non-profits. 

Those with questions about the auction are directed to call Ford, Gittings and Kane at (706) 291-8811.
