The Diamonds Do Good Awards Gala will take place on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 6:30pm in the Four Seasons Ballroom in Las Vegas.
Bringing together a unique mix of the international diamond jewelry industry, government officials, dignitaries, tastemakers, and celebrities from fashion and entertainment, the 2016 Diamonds Do Good Awards Gala will honor industry leaders and companies that have made an outstanding contribution to improve the quality of life of people in diamond communities throughout the world.
This event will celebrate and highlight inspirational stories and the people who have made a positive difference in their communities, both locally and globally. Award categories will represent a broad cross section of the industry, as well as companies, trendsetters and influencers.
The proceeds of the 2016 Diamonds Do Good Awards Gala will benefit the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s mission of providing education scholarships for youth from global diamond communities while continuing our consumer driven goal of communicating the ways diamonds do good!
D.E.F’s own ‘diamonds do good’ story is seen in the growth of young scholars from each of D.E.F.’s program recipients: the African Leadership Academy (ALA), the Botswana Top Achievers Program, Veerayatan’s Colleges of Pharmacy, Engineering & Business Administration Diamond Development Initiative’s Mobile School Program and the Flaviana Matata Foundation.
