(PRESS RELEASE) WILLIAMSVILLE, NY — The 104th Indy 500 is set to run on Sunday, August 23 and Rembrandt Charms is sponsoring team DragonSpeed USA, car 81, piloted by driver Ben Hanley.

“We are excited to continue our NTT IndyCar sponsorship with the DragonSpeed team for the Indy 500, arguably one of the greatest auto races in the World. In 2019, we witnessed DragonSpeed, one of the smallest teams in the NTT IndyCar paddock, disrupt the series and the iconic race by sending the factory McLaren team packing during qualifying. Despite operating on a budget less than McLaren’s hospitality budget for the event, DragonSpeed proved to be competitive until they suffered a mechanical failure during the race,” states Eric Lux, vice president, Rembrandt Charms. “This team’s hard work and dedication has led them to remarkable achievements over the years, and we look forward to cheering them on this month.”

During the event’s long history, the race has only been canceled six times, all during World Wars I and II. This year’s race is unprecedented as there will be no fans allowed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway due to COVID-19 restrictions. Nevertheless, excitement is running high among race fans as they prepare to watch the event live on national television.

“Even though things are a little different this year, Rembrandt Charms continues to adapt and one way we have adapted is by significantly increasing our consumer advertising to bring more charm collectors to our retail jewelers,” states Jeanne Dunkle, Vice President of Marketing, Rembrandt Charms. “Our NTT IndyCar sponsorship is a great boost to our consumer advertising, getting our name out in front of millions and broadening our consumer base. This will ultimately lead to increased business for our retailers.”

Rembrandt Charms has a long-standing relationship with Team DragonSpeed, including two consecutive years of sponsorship during the 2019 and 2020 NTT IndyCar racing seasons. Eric Lux, VP, Rembrandt Charms, raced to victory with DragonSpeed team principal, Elton Julian, to win the 2011 IMSA LMPC Championship. In 2015, Eric raced with the team again, helping Mercedes-Benz secure its first Championship in North America.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
