Dear collectors and friends,
Two years ago today, Betty passed away following an unexpected diagnosis of terminal cancer. Since then, we've enjoyed continuing the Portland Ornament tradition with you and your families. Especially during the Christmas season, we remember how much Betty loved her clients and collectors, and how much joy you brought during the holidays.
Today, we're offering a 1990 Portland Ornament from Betty's personal collection to raise money for the James & Betty Gimarelli Memorial Scholarship Fund. The ornament, numbered #4,854 of the 5,000 limited edition, will be offered through a sealed-bid auction with a minimum bid of $100. The 1990 ornament is very hard to find given how few were produced, and this is one of only a few that we have as a family. This ornament is signed by Betty on the back.
All proceeds of this auction will be donated in full to the James & Betty Gimarelli Memorial Scholarship Fund.
We hope that you'll consider offering a bid for this great collectible, and help us reach our goal of endowing this scholarship in Betty and Jim's memory.
