At Beaudet Jewelry we believe that to truly be a member of the community means that we must do our part to make this a better place to live and thrive for everyone. As part of our commitment to the community we have been longtime supporters of the Eugene Symphony Association, with Georgiann having served on the board of directors for many years. We have directed much of our effort and charitable giving to the arts, believing that they are even more critical as schools cut art programs. Programs that help children and the disadvantaged also are very important to us. We annually donate custom-designed jewelry as a major prize for the Eugene Rotary Duck Race, which raises funds used in the battle against child abuse.
