(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The third annual JFC Day will be held on Saturday September 26, 2020. JFC Day is a day 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 brain child of Steven Vardi, a JFC board member who helped develop the concept along with JFC’s Marketing Committee.

During the inaugural JFC Day in 2018, retailers across the country ran promotions in their stores to celebrate the industry’s success of helping thousands of children through the JFC charity partners. For 2020, Wells Fargo in support of the American Gem Society, has already stepped up as the first sponsor.

The JFC charity partners rally their local supporters to visit jewelers and thank them for their support. “The pandemic has presented a host of issues not only for the jewelry industry, but for all of our charity partners as well. Said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. JFC Day presents a unique opportunity for all of us to come together and recognize that issues like childhood illness and abuse and neglect are still occurring and children remain a priority.”

Anyone can participate in JFC Day. Suppliers, retailers and consumers can help us recognize the accomplishment of raising nearly $ 57 million to support kids. 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 26. 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 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

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.
