A local woman is combining jewelry, the Emmy Awards, and the United Way for a fundraiser.
On Monday night Michelene Sheppard will be hosting an Emmy party at the Best Western in Bridgeport.
The party will feature Park Lane Jewelry, food, drinks, and an Emmy watching party.
Everyone who attends the party will receive a piece of Park Lane Jewelry.
“We're going to watch the Emmys together and they will pay per vote to say what their favorite shows are and we'll see what the people's choice was compared to how the Emmys play out. What we'll do is draw from the people that happen to choose the one that won the award, and that's how we'll start distributing jewelry,” explained Sheppard, who is a fashion director for Park Lane Jewelry.
Sheppard said anyone who comes to the party will leave with a piece of jewelry.
Park Lane is featured on E! Online's Red Carpet and also on Dancing with the Stars.
The event will start at 7 p.m. Monday evening, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the United Way.
