Levinson Jewelers kicked off its 25th year in business with an anniversary event on Feb. 22, 2008, at its Plantation, Fla., store. More than 150 guests joined Levinson Jewelers co-owners Mark and Robin Levinson for the celebration, including Master Watchmaker Franck Muller; Dan and Claire Marino; Dancing With the Stars celebrity Jason Taylor; Sam Madison, cornerback for the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants; and radio personality John “Footy” Kross.
A live auction featured items such as a one-of-a-kind, #13 Franck Muller watch designed for Dan Marino, hand-signed by Muller and designated Piece Unique; an original Dan Marino painting by Patti Morse; and a package including a Romero Britto Wine and FoodFestival poster signed by Dan Marino and Romero Britto, three signed bottles of Marino Estate Wine, and the Opening Doors bracelet designed by Levinson Jewelers. Guests also previewed a showcase of timepieces, including collections from Franck Muller, who flew in from Switzerland.
The auction raised nearly $100,000 for the Dan Marino Foundation.
Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler, attorneys at law, sponsored the evening, and guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of The Capital Grille.
