Albert's Diamond Jewelers' Support in Battle Against National Multiple Sclerosis Society Highlighted by Annual Auction


Every time we talk with the team at Albert's Diamond Jewelers, we love to get an update on their continued dedication to supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, for which they were inducted into the Hall of Fame for their contributions to the battle against M.S.

Albert's big fundraiser every year is their M.S. Auction, held at the Indiana Welcome Center. This year's auction will take place on Saturday, October 1st from 12pm-6pm At this, event community members and business owners donate anything that they can to the auction to raise money for M.S. research. Albert's is currently seeking donations and baskets to be auctioned off to support research on M.S.

Josh Halpern, President of Albert's Diamond Jewelers, explained the history of the auction and why their family has an intense passion for giving back.

“I think this might be the 14th year that we’ve done this auction. We had a woman that used to work for us who was an auctioneer. She knew my mom had M.S. and she said, ‘you should do an auction and I’ll be your auctioneer,” Josh explained.

“That is how it started,” agreed long time Albert’s Diamond Jewelers owner, Fred Halpern. “Right now we’re in the Hall of Fame for raising money for M.S. and the community has taken the cause to heart. We get baskets and baskets of donations.”

The donations don’t only come from the community. Fred notes that about 500 businesses that Albert’s work with in a diamond industry also donate to the cause. There are also many local sponsors that support the event as well. Each year the auction has been increasingly successful.

“We’ve recently crossed the $1 million threshold for the total to date that we’ve been able to donate and our next goal is $2 Million,” Josh stated.
