(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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
