Auction items, meetings events charityAt a benefit held by the International Special Events Society for the Search Foundation, a nonprofit that helps event planners in times of need, Jewels of Ocean created a game out of the fundraising effort. A British Royal Guard watched over a lock box of "crown jewels" (a gem worth $1,000), and for $20 each, guests could purchase keys, one of which opened the box.
