The Club’s traditional pre-party receptions and cocktail party were packed as guests moved between individual members’ hosted suites and the club’s pre-party in the Grand Ballroom Foyer of the Hilton.

Then, as is tradition, the dinner opened with the singing of “The Star Spangled Banner,” performed by the West Point Cadets, and an invocation by the Rev. Elizabeth Junod of West Side Presbyterian Church, Ridgewood, NJ. Club President Lawrence Pettinelli welcomed guests.

The O’Jays, sponsored by Bulova Timepieces, a Citizen Watch America brand, were a particularly appropriate entertainment choice for the Club, which deeply values friendship and tradition. Founders Eddie Levert and Walter Williams have been friends and partners since childhood. “We still appreciate our friendship, dedication to each other and the group, and our love for good music,” said Williams.

“The evening was spectacular,” said Club Banquet Chair Myriam Gumuchian. “Guests went straight from the high-energy performance to a high-energy Dance Party Bash. The floor was packed till well after midnight, and everyone loved the many opportunities to network throughout the evening.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
