Tickets for the November celebration are on sale now.
The association’s event will be held Nov. 2 at The Pool Lounge in New York City from 6:30 – 10:30 p.m.
WJA said the gala will highlight its 40-year commitment to professional mentorship, networking, and education in the jewelry and watch industry.
“Our fundraiser is truly a milestone event. For 40 years, WJA has uplifted thousands of women in our industry and provided education and training to the next generation of jewelry and watch professionals,” said Susan Chandler, WJA President and chief merchandising officer for Citizen Watch America.
“The funds raised in honor of our anniversary celebration will help support our mentorship and leadership development programs, and enable us to award more impactful grants and scholarships for many years to come.”
At the event, guests will enter the Seagram Building via a red carpet. Hors d’oeuvres, gourmet dinner stations, and desserts will be available along with signature cocktails, spirits, champagne, and wine, said WJA.
The cocktail-style reception will allow for networking and opportunities to meet with WJA’s founding members and scholarship recipients. Musical guests and special performances are also on the docket for the evening.
