New York, NY – Jewelers of America (JA), a national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, will host “Wine, Whiskey & Washington,” a members-only event to be held on Tuesday, April 12 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Top of the Town in Arlington, VA.

The evening will highlight Jewelers of America’s legislative advocacy work and feature a presentation on this year’s presidential election by one of the top journalists covering the race. The event is being held on the eve of AGS Conclave.

“In this historic election year, with jewelry industry leaders heading to D.C., this is a unique opportunity to shine a bright light on the work that is being done to fight for jewelers,” says JA President & CEO David J. Bonaparte. “With lawmakers making decisions on sales tax fairness and other key issues that will impact jewelry businesses today and long into the future, having an influence is critical.”

In addition to the event building awareness for its advocacy work on Capitol Hill and the Jewelers of America Political Action Committee (JAPAC), the event will also feature a wine and whiskey tasting, a sit-down dinner, and a keynote presentation on the 2016 elections by a Washington insider.

“Wine, Whiskey & Washington” is sponsored by Synchrony Financial. Transportation to and from the AGS Conclave hotel, Hyatt Regency Crystal City, will be provided.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
