Sponsorship opportunities include event specific sponsorship, as well as participant swag sponsorships that will cover all four events. All the details on sponsorships as well as details on each of the four events can be found at www.ringsofstrength.org.

“The Rings of Strength events make is possible for everyone to be involved in Jewelers for Children and support kids in need, said Debra Puzio, JFC board chair. Anybody can sign up and create their own fundraising page and help make a difference.”

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.

Jewelers for Children was founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need. Since its inception, JFC has donated nearly $57 million to programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect through our charity partners St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Make-A-Wish America, and the National CASA Association. JFC also provides support to Make-A-Wish International, and the Santa-America Fund.

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.”
