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.

The in-person event in Las Vegas will be held on Thursday August 26, at 5:30 a.m. Participants will assemble outside of the Venetian Resort Hotel and run or walk a 5K. Biking activity in beautiful Red Rock Canyon is also available for anyone interested.

The AGS Conclave edition will be held on Sunday September 12, at the Sheraton Dallas Downtown, the host hotel for Conclave. Participants will assemble at 6:30 a.m. and run or walk a 5K and follow that with an event filled, opening day at Conclave.

“Rings of Strength is one of our largest and most popular events” said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. “We weren’t able to hold in-person events last year and it’s exciting to bring them back to two locations this year. The virtual event held last year proved very popular and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it as an option for those who may not be attending market week in Las Vegas or have other commitments at that time. This year presents an opportunity that fits into everyone’s schedule.”

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.”
