(Press Release)
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The 24 Karat Club of the City Of New York will hold its 115th annual Grand Banquet on Jan. 14, 2017, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

While invitations to the banquet are highly sought every year, the 2017 event will be memorable as it is the last one that will be held in the historic Waldorf Astoria grand ballroom before the hotel closes for a three-year renovation project.

The 24 Karat Club Banquet has been held at the Waldorf Astoria since 1913, when the hotel was located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, today the site of the Empire State Building. The 24 Karat Club Banquet is the second-oldest event still running at the hotel. Only the Pennsylvania Society banquet, which dates back to 1899, has an older tenure in the grand ballroom.

More details, including a special entertainment announcement, are coming soon.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
