(PRESS RELEASE) The annual Jewelers for Children Rings of Strength will be held on Thursday, May 31, at Mandalay Bay Resort Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The event includes options for a 5K walk or run, a challenging bike ride in the scenic foothills of Red Rock Valley, or a less strenuous street level bike ride. Sponsors are lining up for this year’s event and participants can now register to participate. The event, now in its sixth year, has generated nearly $300,000 to help children in need.

Once again, JCK Events is the major event sponsor; Ashi Diamonds, Freeman and CMAC have also signed on.

The event will kick off at 5:30 a.m. to avoid the heat of the day. Rest stops along the route will ensure that everyone stays hydrated and energized to help raise funds for children in need.

Participants can visit www.ringsofstrength.org to sign up. During sign-up you create your own unique fundraising page and URL which can be forwarded to all of your friends and acquaintances to encourage them to sponsor your participation. Participants can sign up as individuals or build a team page with friends to create even more excitement. All funds raised will benefit the Jewelers for Children charity partners.

The event was named for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patients Maggie and Odie. When Maggie spoke at the Facets of Hope event in 2012, she shared the story of how she gave Odie a ring with the word Strength engraved in it as they fought their shared battle with cancer. Each participant receives a silver ring like Maggie’s to commemorate their participation in the event, courtesy of Ashi Diamonds.

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.
