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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
