This year’s donations to come from exhibitors of the JCK shows
JCK has announced its Swiss Watch by JCK and the new LUXURY Watch will sponsor Time for Kids, the annual watch giveaway that takes place during the Jewelers for Children (JFC) Facets of Hope event in Las Vegas. The event, which is to be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino on June 5, will give each attendee a chance to win one of an array of watches—all donated from partcipants of the Swiss Watch and LUXURY Watch shows.
“The Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope is an integral part of the activities during the JCK market week in Las Vegas,” said JCK Events senior vice president Yancy Weinrich. “Our exhibitors have been very generous over the years supporting the Time for Kids activity. It only makes sense that a watch giveaway be sponsored by the largest U.S. watch show, held during the largest U.S. jewelry show.”
This year will mark the 17th time that watch exhibitors have supported Time for Kids. This year’s watches will be on display throughout the Facets of Hope event; their sponsors will receive recognition on signage and during the event’s program.
“What a perfect way to build on our past success and reach a milestone with the support of the prestigious Swiss Watch and LUXURY Watch events by JCK,” said JFC executive director David Rocha.
Swiss Watch by JCK is an appointment-only event featuring premier Swiss timepiece brands held in upscale, private suites at Mandalay Bay. The event runs June 3–6. For more information, visit swisswatch.jckonline.com.
New for 2016, LUXURY Watch will begin on June 2 by invitation only and will be open to all badge holders June 3–5. Its ballroom setting will showcase fine timepiece brands. For an exhibitor list and more information, visit this page.
