It was the perfect combination of "diamonds are a girl's best friend" and "man's best friend" when Zadok Jewelers hosted its annual holiday party benefiting the no-kill shelter Friends for Life. Key elements — Ambassadog Carrie and ambassadors for top line companies including Mikimoto, Chopard and Ippolita.
Ensuring that spirits ran high was Zadok's signature holiday drink — the Jewel-tini made with LaMarca Prosecco and Viniq Ruby.
Unique fundraising meant that Friends For Life received proceeds from the sale of gemstone cake slices. The cake was laced with semi-precious stones offering guests the chance to win a loose stone if they picked a lucky piece. The sale of raffle tickets (watches, cuff links, Houston Texans memorabilia) added to the pot. All of which Friends for Life chief Salice Shuttlesworth was grateful.
Helene and Dror Zadok welcomed guests to their family-owned emporium where they have reigned for more than 39 years. Their three sons and wives were on hand as well — Segev and Amy, Gilad and Lisa and Jonathan and Michelle.
Oohing and aahing over the multitude of dazzling gift possibilities were Allen and Anita Mattis, Gina and Greg Winslow, Lisia and Gary Hurwitz, Holly and Austin Alvis, Yasmin and John David, Lindy and Sandy Kahn, Jake Kecman and Smezma Najdanovic.
