On Saturday July 14, 2012, the 4th annual Race for the Race was a huge success! Teams of two raced around Downtown and midtown Sacramento solving riddles and clues in hopes of winning nine unique rings. These amazing prizes were provided by Rogers Jewelry Company.
I had the opportunity to interview Kim Molesworth, who selected the rings from Rogers Jewelry Company for this year’s Race for the Ring winners. Kim has worked at Rogers Jewelry Company since 1985. Kim said, “ This year we are trying something new. We are offering the grand prize team their choice of 9 different rings with a value of $4,200 to $5,500. They can select a ring to suit their lifestyle choosing from beautiful engagement rings, anniversary bands or gemstone rings.

I asked Kim what she thought about the new ring choice for the winners, and she said, “I think there are some beautiful selections to choose from.... and with the option of choosing from 9 rings, the winner should be very happy with their prize!!!”
As the event drew closer, the excitement built in Sacramento, for participants, sponsors and volunteers. Kim was equally intrigued to see how the event would turn out. “This is my first year that I’m personally attending the event so I’m pretty excited to be part of it,” shared Kim.
“Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services is such a worthy cause and we’re happy to continue with the Race for the Ring event to benefit their programs this year. After the event, we hope that everyone is inspired to join us and support Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services now and throughout the year."
Kim and others from Rogers Jewelry Company were pleased with the great turnout of over 300 individuals and the first place team was thrilled with their prize. Click here to see great photos from the day.
