Marianne Miller “On Cloud Nine” Upon Winning Endless Spirit Award

Orange resident, Marianne Miller was shocked and surprised at Tuesday afternoon’s Cinco de Mayo celebration at Cellini Design Jewelers, 464 Boston Post Road, when she was named the winner of the Endless Spirit Award, presented by Jesper Nielsen, founder and CEO of Endless Jewelry.

The Endless Spirit Award is presented to one woman in the Orange community who deserves to be recognized, but is often left out of the spotlight.

Miller was nominated by several people on Cellini’s Facebook page and won the title. She received a certificate and gifts including a very special Endless Jewelry bracelet handpicked by Nielsen himself.

The bracelet is a purple cord — coincidentally, her favorite color — decorated with a beautiful diamond encrusted bangle, which is one of only 300 in the world, and not available for sale anywhere. Miller was still breathless 90 minutes after the presentation. “I can’t believe this,” she told Orange Live. “I’m on cloud nine.”

Guests at the jewelry store were treated to a smorgasbord of Mexican favorites and margaritas.

Women browsed the vast selection of spring fashion jewelry, including the new JLo line of Endless Jewelry, and obviously liked what they saw. The bracelets were selling very well until closing time.

YOU CAN STILL WIN

Cellini Design Jewelry used the occasion as a fundraiser for the Orange Lions Club Charities. They sold tickets for $5 each for a chance to win one of five Endless bracelets (valued at $100 each). All money from ticket sales and 5% of all sales on Tuesday will be donated to the Lions.

Instead of drawing the winning tickets on Cinco de Mayo, Cellini’s is giving everyone a chance to get in on the raffle — a great Mother’s Day gift — by extending the ticket sales until Friday at 5:55 p.m. the drawing will take place at 6 p.m. and the winners will be listed on Cellini’s Facebook page.

Photos: ‘Twas A Great Day For An Easter Egg Hunt

IMG_8106As any Orange resident knows, the Orange Lions club has been hosting the annual Easter Egg Hunt for local children for several decades.

Although the early morning (5:30 a.m.) saw some rain showers, Event Chairman Nick Bencivengo and a couple of other Lions walked the fairgrounds a few hours later and decided to have the hunt outdoors instead of in the High Plains Gym because the ground was dry enough to give the kids ample traction when they ran out to search for chocolate treats.

Folks started arriving well before the first egg was tossed on the grass and waited in line to meet the Easter Bunny.

Employees from Home Depot offered a craft table and there also was free face painting.

Parents of the littlest participants showed wonderful restraint as they guided their little ones around the search area, but didn’t help pick any up. Great Job Parents!

The Lions served up coffee and popcorn under the pavilion and children who were lucky enough to find an egg with a star on it were able to cash them in for a prize.

One little girl named Angelina approached me after she was done with her hunt and offered me a couple of chocolate eggs.
“I have plenty,” she told me.

This is just one of the ways the Orange Lions serve the community. The event is free and everyone goes home happy.
