With enthusiastic help from its Facebook fans, Torin Bales Fine Jewelry donated $1,000 to the Dorothy O'Connor Pet Adoption Center during its annual Love Moment contest. Three lucky Facebook fans also were chosen to win a $500 shopping spree at the jewelry store.
When Torin Bales Jewelry asked its Facebook fans to post holiday photos of their favorite pets, it received hundreds of pet photos from all walks of life, including dogs, cats, cows, horses and even two goats. The jewelry store pledged a $5 donation to the adoption center for each posted photo and chose three of its Facebook fans to receive a $500 Christmas shopping spree.
"The hundreds of photos people shared with us was a celebration of pets and just how important they can be to our families," said Torin Bales, owner of Torin Bales Fine Jewelry in Victoria. "We're proud to be a member of this community, and we want to thank all our Facebook fans for their help and show of support of our donation" to the center.
