HAMPTON, Va. (August 15, 2018) — Hampton University and Goodman & Sons have teamed up to offer two exclusive Hampton University Pandora charms.
The two select charms contain a picture of either the Emancipation Oak or the Memorial Chapel, with both donning the Hampton University logo. Each charm is hand-finished sterling silver jewelry and costs $85. Fifteen percent of the proceeds benefit the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI).
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Goodman & Sons Jewelry who boast honesty, integrity, and excellence, all qualities that Hampton University strives to live by as well,” said Hampton University President, Dr. William R. Harvey. “We also want to offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you to Goodman & Sons for helping give back to HUPTI. Together we can ease human misery and save many lives.”
Mr. Stuart Goodman from Goodman & Sons Jewelers received treatment from HUPTI for prostate cancer in 2016. Receiving treatments there, he jumped on the Pandora and HU partnership to bring this once-in-a-lifetime jewelry to Hampton University. "Goodman & Sons has had a long standing relationship with Dr. Harvey, his family, and the university,” said Mr. Goodman, owner of Goodman & Sons Jewelers. “When Pandora presented us with this opportunity, there was no doubt in our minds who we wanted to support. After my prostate cancer diagnosis in June of 2016 and my subsequent treatment at the Proton Therapy Institute, I was determined to support this life-saving research and share my experience with as many people as possible.”
The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute utilizes proton therapy, delivering effective, focused radiation treatment for a multitude of cancer types. Proton radiation is noninvasive and only lasts about a minute for each session, allowing many patients to continue leading their regular lives with few challenges.
“We are excited about this partnership between Hampton University and Goodman & Sons Jewelers,” said Doretha Spells, Hampton University’s Vice President for Business Affairs and Treasurer. “Hampton University has a long term relationship with Goodman & Sons Jewelers and we are appreciative of this opportunity and their continued support of Hampton University and the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute.”
The Hampton University Pandora charms are now available for purchase and are only available at Goodman & Sons Jewelry. Call 757-838-2328 to order yours today.
