(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – On Sept. 29, Jewelers for Children will celebrate the first annual JFC Day. The day will be a way for all supporters of JFC and for potential new ones to celebrate the success of the industry’s support for children in need and raise visibility and funds for the charity. JFC Day is the brainchild of Steven Vardi, a JFC board member who helped develop the concept along with JFC’s Marketing Committee.

“We’ll be asking all of our current supporters to focus their efforts on JFC Day, helping us to educate consumers about the good the industry is doing, and we’ll also look for companies to run some type of fundraising activity on that Saturday as a nationwide effort for children in need,” said Vardi.

Those on the supply side of the industry will be asked to reach out to all of their retail customers, asking them to participate in the initiative. Many will be offering partnership programs for the day. 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 Sept. 29. Everyone will be asked to use their social media presence to promote the day, particularly on that Saturday to encourage nationwide, blanket of exposure for the charity.

JFC will be providing participants with materials to promote the day, as well as ideas on how they can participate. Support will include trade ads, sample social media, customer communications and in-store signage.

“It’s exciting that as we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we launch JFC Day,” said Pamela Mortensen, JFC board chair. “This will become an annual campaign to raise the visibility of JFC and the amazing work that the jewelry industry is doing by supporting the charity. Tens of thousands of children have benefited from the good we do and we need to share that message with the consumer.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
