What is Gold Party Event?

GOLD PARTY EVENT is a local fundraising company that creates donations for schools, churches and other good causes without selling anything or asking for donations. MRHS Music Foundation has partnered with Gold Party Event fundraiser to raise money for our school without anyone having to buy or donate anything.  Gold Party Event provides the opportunity to recycle gold and silver (at top dollar) and the CUSTOMER KEEPS 100%  OF THE APPRAISED VALUE!
Gold Party Event will make a donation of 10-20% to MRHS Music Foundation - their donation does not come out of your proceeds.   

How to Participate?

Step 1- Gather your old, broken or unwanted gold, silver or platinum items and RSVP (optional) to confirm your participation

** All those who RSVP will receive a special gift **  RSVP to Irene Lehmann at

Step 2- Bring your baggie of items to Jazz Cabaret. We’ll have a station in the lobby during the festivities.

Step 3- Watch as your items are appraised and weighed (free service)

Step 4- Decide if you would like to sell them, knowing that you get to KEEP ALL OF YOUR MONEY!

Step 5- To receive your cash, you have two options.  You may schedule an appointment time to cash in your items at the Gold Party Event office in Kings Contrivance where you will receive your cash on the spot OR a representative from the Music Foundation will take your appraised items to the Gold Party Events office where checks will be issued and ready to pickup (or mail) on December 18, 2014.

To date the Marriotts Ridge High School Community (staff and families) have earned over $5,000 by participating.  Gather your items and bring them in for a no obligation free appraisal…it’s well worth it.
