Scottsdale-chartered Grand Canyon Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution held its annual Sweetheart Auction and hosted a program by Alfredo J. Molina, internationally recognized Valley jeweler, at its Feb. 7 chapter meeting at Chaparral Suites in Scottsdale.

Alfredo J. Molina is chairman and CEO of Molina Fine Jewelers and Black, Starr and Frost, America’s first jeweler since 1810.

Mr. Molina illuminated the development of American cities and sponsorship of the country’s inventors, including Thomas Edison, by venerable American jewelers of the 19th and 20th centuries.

In addition, Mr. Molina has donated his time and resources to more than 300 charities, personifying DAR’s goal to celebrate America through volunteerism in our local communities.
