It’s set for June 3.

Jewelers for Children will hold the 20th Anniversary Facets of Hope event on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The first Facets of Hope event was held in Las Vegas on June 6, 1999, at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Jeffrey Cohen of Citizen Watch America and Bill Luth of Signet Jewelers Ltd. have agreed to serve as honorees for the special anniversary celebration.

The event will celebrate the success of JFC’s fundraising efforts for the year and commitments to the charity partners will be announced, along with celebrating the success of the charity over the years. Updates on some of the children JFC has helped in the past 20 years will be provided showing where they are today and how their lives have changed. In 2017, nearly 1,750 industry guests attended during the Las Vegas market events. Both Cohen and Luth have agreed to serve as guests of honor at the event with the responsibility of assisting JFC in raising funds to benefit children who are the victims of catastrophic illness or life-threatening abuse and neglect.

“What an accomplishment and what a special celebration this Facets of Hope will be for Jewelers for Children,” said Pamela Mortensen, JFC Board chair. “Jeffrey and Bill are the perfect honorees for us as we mark this important milestone for the industry and the support of children in need.”

The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the South Seas Ballroom on the third level of the hotel with cocktails, followed by dinner and the program beginning at 7:30 p.m. Anyone interested in attending or sponsoring can contact JFC at (212) 687-2949 or [email protected] Details and participation forms are available at the JFC website, www.jewelersforchildren.org. Following dinner, attendees can enjoy an after-party which will include dessert and drink options, all sponsored by Hallmark.

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.
