On Thursday, March 7, 2019, Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan will hold its annual Business Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Live Auction Fundraiser.
Les Gold, president and founder of American Jewelry & Loan, is proud to participate as celebrity auctioneer for the live auction portion of the event.
The live auction event is a fundraiser for JA, who the Golds have partnered with to promote entrepreneurship and business skills in young people via The Gold Bank. The Gold Bank is a source for low-interest small business loans for students involved in the JA Company program, which teaches entrepreneurship to high school students. In order to receive a loan from The Gold Bank, students must present their business idea to a panel of business leaders, including the Golds.
This year’s induction ceremony and live auction will be held at beautiful Lovett Hall at The Henry Ford museum. The JA Business Hall of Fame honors business leaders in Southeastern Michigan who exemplify what JA hopes to teach and inspire in young people.
