Jewelers for Children Announces 2022 JFC Day

The event is on September 24.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Jewelers for Children has announced Saturday September 24, 2022 as JFC Day. This marks the fifth annual day earmarked for the industry to come together and celebrate the success the industry has had in providing support to organizations that benefit children facing challenges in life, including life-threatening abuse and neglect and catastrophic illness.

JFC Day has grown with support from retailers across the country who run promotions in their stores to celebrate the industry’s success of helping thousands of children through the JFC charity partners. The program has grown each year with support from companies like Day’s Jewelers, Reeds Jewelers, and Fred Meyer Jewelers.

The JFC Day celebration also gets support from the JFC charities, including the National CASA/GAL Association whose staff and volunteers from their local program across the country visit jewelers to say thanks. “JFC Day is a day for a true celebration. Said Alan Zimmer, JFC board chair. For nearly 25 years the industry has supported JFC and allowed us to donate more than $60 million to help thousands of children.”

Anyone can participate in JFC Day. Suppliers, retailers and consumers can help celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of the industry. Suppliers can reach out to all of their retail customers, asking them to participate in the initiative. Retailers will be asked to reach out to their customer base to educate them about JFC and invite them to participate in whatever activity the retailer has planned for September 24. Everyone will be asked to use their social media presence to promote the day, particularly on that Saturday to encourage a nationwide, blanket of exposure for the charity.

JFC has available materials to make it easier for anyone to participate. A planning guide, including ideas on how to participate, as well as social media materials, sample emails, press releases and videos are available on the JFC website here.




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
