Jewelers for Children (JFC) has announced the Super Store Makeover Contest where one lucky retail jeweler will win a store makeover valued at more than $100,000!
All jewelers will need to do is raise funds for JFC through December 31. Participating jewelers will create their own fundraising progress page at http://www.firstgiving.com/jfcevent/super-store-makeover, where they can record the donations they receive and their customers can make donations. The winner will be determined by a point system. Each time a retailer recruits a donor, they will get 10 points. They will also get one point for every $500 raised.
“We wanted a system that was fair and equitable to all independent retailers, regardless of their size,” said Debra Puzio, Vice President of Special Programs for JFC. “Everyone knows it takes the same amount of effort to recruit a donor, whether they give $10,000 or $100. By having a point system, we make sure that the work required to recruit a donor is rewarded, as well as the amount raised being recognized.”
The contest was the brain child of JFC board member Eric Zuckerman of Pac Team Group. Pac Team is the title sponsor for the contest along with other leading companies in the industry who are donating products and services, including Grid/3 International, ARMS, USA, Majilite & Partners, StarLuxe Branding, Lansa Americas, Rio Grande, Imtech Graphics, Global Logistics, Jaboa Enterprises, and the CSI Group.
The contest is open to any independent retailer who is interested in getting involved in Jewelers for Children and would like a chance to win a store makeover. The winner will be announced in January of 2017 and the makeover will begin on a date negotiated with the winner and the sponsors.
