Couples Dash Around Manhattan in Search of a Diamond & More While Raising Money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Date:9/15/2009

NEW YORK, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of couples dashed around Manhattan on Saturday in search of a $20,000 engagement ring, Hawaiian honeymoon and more as part of the "Diamond Dash: Dash for a Diamond & a Cure." The event was sponsored by Michael C. Fina and Tacori, leaders in the jewelry and bridal industry. Winners Tom Weymouth and Katherine Gordon of Astoria, NY inched out fellow dashers by mere minutes to claim the grand prize and opportunity to propose live at mad46 Rooftop Lounge at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Tom and Katherine took approximately 3 hours to complete the course, using a combination of subways, cabs, and sprinting to dash past their fellow competitors. Overcome with joy and surprise, Tom dropped to one knee and said, "Kat, I'd run anywhere with you." Ironically, this wasn't the first time the two had participated in such an event. "Kat and I love games and one of our first dates was a race around New York where we really bonded as a couple," said Tom. "When we saw the Diamond Dash advertised, we knew it was meant to be. When we actually won we just couldn't believe our luck!"

The couple was greeted by the Fina family, who presented them with a 1.52 carat Tacori diamond in a classic Tacori engagement ring setting. It fit Katherine's finger perfectly. "It has always been our belief that diamonds make a difference in everyone's lives, and I think it's safe to say this one will always remind Tom and Katherine of their dedication to one another," said Steven Fina, VP of Michael C. Fina.

Also in attendance was Michael Osso, Executive Director of the New York City Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which proceeds of the dash benefited. Dashers were encouraged to donate $100.00 to the society in lieu of a registration fee. Nearly $3,000 was raised.

Event kick-off took place at 12:00 noon at Battery Park and text messaged clues led couples
