2016 Community Events
benefit for the Paramount Theater and WVPT Public Television
Keller & George joined the Paramount and WVPT Public Television for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in celebration of the premiere episode of Downton Abbey's sixth and final season.
In addition to donating a sterling silver and amethyst cuff bracelet to the event raffle, Keller & George put together a special display of estate jewels showcasing the styles — Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco, Exotic Influences and WWI — that the ladies of Downton Abbey might have worn during the span of the show; from 1912 just after the sinking of the Titanic through 1924.

Presented by Charlottesville's Business Women's Round Table, a part of the Charlottesville Region Chamber of Commerce.
In February, Keller & George was among the sponsors of the 2016 Quadruplicity Conference for Women at the DoubleTree Hotel; a daylong event focused on professional and personal development.
A highlight of the event is the presentation of the annual Q Award, which honors a woman who exemplifies leadership, success, community service, and who supports other women and the Chamber.
Each year, Keller & George Jewelers handcrafts a custom jewel for the honoree: an 18-karat white gold pendant in the shape of the letter Q embellished with a diamond accent designed by our store manager, Charleen Pfaff.
Congratulations to Amy-Sarah Marshall, the 2016 Q Award recipient! Amy-Sarah is founding president of the Charlottesville Pride Community Network, which advocates for LGBTQ rights in the C'ville area.

This fall, Keller & George is helping the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA celebrate its 10th anniversary as a No Kill Shelter; we think they deserve a huge round of appaws! The event features dinner, dancing to the Motown tunes of Kustom Made, live and silent auctions, and a raffle for a chance to win a $3500 Keller & George gift certificate.
