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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
