Mountz Jewelers hid 35 gifts valued from $35 to $100 in Cumberland and Dauphin Counties and offered hints as to the location of the prizes on their Facebook page (facebook.com/mountzjewelerspage).

For each person who found a gift and tagged Mountz Jewelers on Facebook or Instagram, Mountz Jewelers pledged to make a $20 donation to the United Way. At the completion of the contest, all 35 gifts were found and a total of 32 Mountz fans posted their prizes to Mountz Jewelers’ social media channels totaling a $640 donation to the United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County.
