(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children will hold the 22nd edition of its Annual Facets of Hope event on Thursday, June 4, at the Venetian Las Vegas during the jewelry market week. The event shifts to Thursday evening in connection with the change in the date pattern for the 2020 events.

During the event Gina Drosos, chief executive officer of Signet Jewelers Ltd., and Mercedes Abramo, president and chief executive officer of Cartier North America, will be honored and the charity will announce the success of their fundraising efforts for the year.

In 2019, more than 1,200 industry friends attended the event and it was announced that $ 1.3 million would be donated to the JFC charity partners bringing the cumulative total since 1999 to nearly $ 57 million.

“We are so fortunate to have Gina and Mercedes serving as honorees for the 2020 edition of our Facets of Hope event. said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. Along with them and hearing from some of the young heroes the industry has helped, the evening will be a “not-to-miss” event.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
