Van Dell Jewelers Puts Local Sparkle in Wellington Toy Drive
Wellington, FL (November 30, 2013) – The Wellington Courtyard Shops second annual ‘Keeping it Local’ Toy Drive, in partnership with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, has extra seasonal sparkle, thanks to Alexander Van Dell and Van Dell Jewelers and Designers volunteering as the drive’s local toy drop-off site at 13860 Wellington Trace.
“The drive is all about ‘bringing a smile to a Wellington child’ during this special season. This is a local business. We are a local family. We have room in our hearts and our store to welcome toy donations. And who knows? Maybe Jack will bring a pony for under the tree,” the jeweler joked, referring to Jack Van Dell, whose proposal for a Palm Beach Horse Park expanding Wellington’s role as a top venue to include Western and American Quarter Horse competition, will be considered by the Wellington Village Council in early December.
So it could be a busy month for this Wellington family. But Alexander Van Dell is going to focus on dazzling his Courtyard Shops guests on Wednesday, December 11, when a special Keeping it Local shopping day will see a portion of all sales made at these participating Wellington businesses — Kontiki Wine & Raw Bar, Lindburger’s, Sam Jon’s Salon, TCBY Yoghurt, Tijuana Flats and Van Dell Jewelers – benefit the drive.
“There’s a lot of wonderful things happening in Wellington, thanks to a lot of wonderful people, including first and foremost, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office,” said Van Dell.
