Foothill fundraiser showcases jewelry collection

The Foothill Commission has scheduled the “Foothill Is a Gem Fundraiser” 4-6 p.m. May 31 in the Campus Center Dining Room at Foothill College, 12345 S. El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills.

The jewelry showcased at the event includes earrings, hair combs, mixed-media amulets and necklaces.

Many of the featured pieces are from the collection of Foothill College President Judy C. Miner, who owns a gallery of couture costume items from the New York-based Lunch at The Ritz and San Francisco-based artist Masha Archer. Miner will be on hand at 5 p.m. to share stories behind some of the pieces from her collection.

The event will also feature custom and vintage jewelry designed by local artists, including Jade Candy by Belinda Chung of BK Collections, Karen Beswick, Cindy Greene, Barbara Bernstein, Wesley Brando, Cindy Worthington-Levy and Tuareg Jewelry. All artisans will donate a percentage of their sales to Foothill’s nonprofit Stretch to Kindergarten program and Family Engagement Institute (FEI). FEI provides educational opportunities for underserved families with children.

A $20 tax-deductible donation is requested. Parking for the event is free. Lots 1 and 2-A provide access to the Campus Center.

The all-volunteer Foothill Commission supports students, programs and services at the college. Local residents are invited to join the commission, which operates under the auspices of the Foothill-De Anza Foundation.
