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 info@jewelersforchildren.org. 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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
