(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The second annual JFC Day will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28. JFC Day is a day for all supporters of JFC and for potential new ones to celebrate the success of the industry’s support for children in need and raise visibility and funds for the charity. JFC Day is the brainchild of Steven Vardi, a JFC board member who helped develop the concept along with JFC’s Marketing Committee.

During the inaugural JFC Day in 2018, retailers across the country ran promotions in their stores to celebrate the industry’s success of helping thousands of children through the JFC charity partners. Participating companies included Reeds Jewelers, Day’s Jewelers, Tiny Jewel Box, Richline Group and Howard’s Jewelry Center.

The JFC charity partners rallied their local supporters to visit jewelers and thank them for their support. In an effort spear-headed by the National CASA/GAL Association, the four partners worked to produce a thank you card and script for their supporters to use.

Anyone can participate in JFC Day. Suppliers, retailers and consumers can help us recognize the accomplishment of raising nearly $57 million to support kids. Suppliers can reach out to all of their retail customers, asking them to participate in the initiative. Retailers will be asked to reach out to their customer base to educate them about JFC and invite them to participate in whatever activity the retailer has planned for September 28. Everyone will be asked to use their social media presence to promote the day, particularly on that Saturday to encourage nationwide, blanket of exposure for the charity.

JFC will be providing participants with materials to make it easy to promote the day, as well as ideas on how they can participate. Support will include trade ads, sample social media, customer communications, and in-store signage. The JFC website has suggested ideas on programs that can be run along with collateral material that can be downloaded and customized.

Companies interested in participating in JFC Day can sign up on the JFC website at www.jewelersforchildren.org or contact JFC at 212-687-2949, or [email protected].

Wilkerson Testimonials

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
