(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children has announced that it will be holding a virtual edition of its popular Rings of Strength event during the upcoming virtual JCK Show Aug. 11-14. Participants will be able to sign up and raise funds to help children in need, while connecting through activity. JFC is working with Charity Footprints, the leading virtual platform for non-profits.

During the four-day event, participants can choose any activity, anywhere they are, and be part of the whole. They can run or walk the traditional 5K or ride their bikes any distance they choose. They’ll also be able to walk their dog, mow the lawn, take a morning stroll; anything! The option to link wearable trackers and smart watches to the site will allow for all activity to be counted towards the goal of 6 million steps over the four day event.

No minimum level of activity is required. Folks can do whatever they’re comfortable with for as long as they choose. Everyone will have the ability to invite their friends, families and co-workers to support their efforts and sponsor their activities to help kids who need it the most.

“Rings of Strength is one of our largest and most popular events” said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. “While we’re not able to gather together in person this year, we’ll be able to connect through activity wherever we are, doing whatever makes us happy. The new site allows for all participants to share their activity and progress, including photos, with everyone else. A virtual event also exponentially expands the potential participants as anyone can now join in without having to attend a singular event in one location. With four days in which to participate, the event can fit into everyone’s schedule.”

Anyone interested in participating can visit www.ringsofstrength.org and sign up. All participants will be asked to link their activities during the virtual JCK Show Aug. 11-14.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
