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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
