Borsheims Awards Salvation Army Bell Ringer with $5k Diamond Ring

(PRESS RELEASE) OMAHA, NE – A Council Bluffs, IA, woman has her young son to thank for her new $5,000 diamond ring. Eleven-year-old Adam McKinney asked his mom to ring bells with him for The Salvation Army this holiday season. After a four-hour bell ringing shift at a Council Bluffs Hy-Vee, mom Jennifer McKinney was automatically entered in Borsheims Big Ring contest. Monday, Jennifer was announced as the winner of a 14k white gold round diamond ring that retails for $4,950.

The Borsheims Big Ring contest is in its fourth year. The contest, in partnership with The Salvation Army, has successfully helped increase the number of bell ringers in Omaha and the surrounding communities during The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. All bell ringers who fulfilled at least one 2-hour shift during the holiday season were entered into the contest.

Borsheims President and CEO Karen Goracke and Major Adam Moore from The Salvation Army presented the ring to McKinney and her son in front of a crowd of cheering Borsheims employees and customers. In addition to running the Big Ring contest, Borsheims also encourages its employees to sign up for bell ringing shifts across the city and supports The Salavation Army year-round.

McKinney says she already has a diamond ring but plans to keep this one and wear it on another finger. And, she noted, it was a perfect fit! A photo of McKinney and her son talking with the media after receiving the ring is attached.

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.”
