(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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
