Bennett’s Donates $500 to Kiwanis

Allison and Melanie Bennett presented a $500 check Tuesday to Kiwanis President Don Casperson for Kiwanis programs that benefit children. Bennett’s Fine Jewelry and Gifts created a December fundraiser during its Holiday Open House in which for three days the store sold cake slices for $5. Hidden under the icing of each cake slice was a gemstone. Customers didn’t know if they would get a diamond, a ruby or another fine gemstone. Allison Bennett told the Los Alamos Daily Post that this annual event is very popular with customers. The first year of the gemstone cake promotion, Bennett’s raised $515. The proceeds last year were donated to Self Help, Inc. Photo by Karen Kendall/
