May 8thwas a special evening for Roman & Sophie Shor, owners of Roman Jewelers. They were recognized by the Hunterdon County YMCA for their service to the community at a lavish, warm and friendly event at Fiddler’s Elbow in Bedminster, NJ. And there was even a surprise guest….
According to the YMCA, Roman and Sophie were chosen as honorees for their impressive history of outstanding community involvement. The theme for the Annual Recognition Dinner was “Build a Campfire, Build a Memory,” with the goal of the dinner to raise funds for the YMCA’s financial assistance program…and raise they did. The evening raised funds in excess of $100,000, and Roman & Sophie were congratulated by NJ Congressman Leonard Lance. According to Mrs. Shor it was the best surprise of the night. She says, “When Mr. Lance handed us the congressional recognition award, it was one of the best moments of my life. Only 30 years ago, Roman and I came to America from Russia without a penny and now, recognition from a congressman in the country we love and thank for all of our success.”
All of us at Roman Jewelers know that success for Roman & Sophie did not come without a ton of hard work and dedication. Thank you, Roman & Sophie!!! You set the bar high and the community respects you immensely, your employees love you and the jewelry industry is truly lucky to have you as mentors and examples of the best in the industry.
