Hot Diamonds in search of inspirational people for new calendar

Hot Diamonds, the sterling silver and diamond jewelry brand, is looking for 12 inspirational men and women to honor in their 2006 Hot Dates fundraising calendar to be sold on college campuses nationwide this fall.

The brand is running an online competition through May 1, to find people who are bold, sexy, artistic, passionate, courageous, strong, stunning, outspoken, thoughtful, or tenacious. Such people may include a mentor, teacher, confidant, supporter, and survivor.

The calendar contain milestones of inspiration-dates when great events occurred, such as world records and important speeches. It will be available at college campus-based organizations to use as a fundraiser for any cause.

Twelve winners will be flown to Las Vegas in June for a photo shoot and an invitation-only reception. Three days in Vegas, cash, jewelry and other prizes will be given to those selected to be on the calendar.
