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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
