J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been the Official Jewelry Sponsor with an onsite presence at the event since its inception in 2007.
On Friday evening, the festivities kick-off with the DuPont Registry Live Hangar Party, presented by Ulysse Nardin, at Atlantic Aviation at the Boca Raton Airport.

The highest bidder will be able to wrap their finger in a piece of jewelry that resembles a pair of dazzling angel’s wings.
“It’s easy for -- and essential to – us to contribute to a cause as worthy as the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County,” said Jim Dunn. “We want to help every child reach their full potential, regardless of their circumstances in life. The most disadvantaged individuals are the ones who need us the most, and are among the most deserving. I feel blessed to be able to continue the tradition of giving back I learned from my mother as a young boy.”
J.R. Dunn Jewelers will also be displaying unique items from the collections of the world’s top designers at the resort Saturday and Sunday, including cutting-edge designs from Britain’s Stephen Webster and accessories for men in the artistic and exclusive knives from American designer William Henry. A portion of the weekend’s sales will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County.
The main event on Sunday at the resort, presented by Impala, will feature an expert panel of judges and some of the finest automobiles and motorcycles ever built!
