“In the last 6 years, we have raised over $90,000 for local charities here on Staten Island. We are excited to eclipse $100,000 given back to our local community. It’s a great way to not only help one lucky couple take their relationship to the next level, but also to help and support our community.”

“An engagement is something special that couples will remember for the rest of their lives. This is something they can talk about for years to come.” Cory says, “The contest is like any relationship: you have to put in a lot of effort for it to work, but in the end you learn to work together.
Plus, one lucky couple will start their lives together with a Verragio $10,000 ring.”
