Happy Holidays!

Every year at the GRC we have a great holiday party, celebrating Hanukkah for those of us who are Jewish and Christmas for those of us who are not.  Gary makes latkes, gifts are exchanged via secret santa, and lots and lots of food is consumed.  It's always a fun time at the end of the year.

Pearl Grant Richmans 50th Anniversary Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Charity Event

It's great to be able to use our work to do good in multiple ways - here's a photo of Nancy Richman with her daughter who is a Lymphoma survivor.  They recently auctioned off a number of items, including a GRC menorah we donated, raising $2500 for the cause!

A Custom Tzedakah Box for Jewish Center of Princeton

Gary recently held a Hiddur Mitzvah event at the Jewish Center of Princeton.  In addition to the event, Gary presented to the center a tzedakah box that was commissioned to kick off the center's 60th anniversary.  A nice article about the event can be read here in the New Jersey Jewish News.

After presenting the box it was brought back to the studio along with glass sheets that the Hiddur Mitzvah participants worked together to make.  These were fired in the kilns and incorporated into the box.  This piece is designed in a way that it incorporates six separate boxes into one - each having a glass plaque showing what the money collected in that box will be used for.  It's a unique design and turned out rather spectacularly as shown by the photos below:

Holiday Shipping Deal

Here's a great deal for our stores who have some last minute Hanukkah orders - Free standard shipping on any order over $200 all this week!  The free drop ship offer may be over, but we hope as many people like this special as much as they liked the last one.  We've been working hard to keep the shelves full at this time of year and we still have work ready to ship out at a moment's notice!  It's not too late to get your orders in so you can have your shelves stocked for all those people who are putting their gift buying off until the last minute of the eighth night.

Brandeis Women 2009

A little over a year ago we had a group here as a fundraiser for Brandeis Women.  They had so much fun that they came back! Paying their group a fee to participate, Gary matched that donation in the form of a discount as the women bought sculpture and created custom glass.  If your organization would be interested in a similar event please don't hesitate to contact us!
