The press release below announces Cash4Gold and MC Hammer’s efforts to jumpstart Feed the Children’s Breakfast2Live Campaign. This is great news, and the latest in a long line of charitable efforts by the company and the iconic MC Hammer.
Here is a copy of the press release announcing the Feed the Children partnership:
Cash4Gold and MC Hammer launch Feed The Children’s Breakfast2Live campaign
SHEFFIELD, 9 December 2009: Leading mail-in gold buyer Cash4Gold and MC Hammer, three-time Grammy award winner, today announced the launch of Breakfast2Live, a Feed The Children (UK) campaign. The Breakfast2Live campaign calls on groups and individuals around the UK to hold breakfasts to raise money for the charity’s life-saving projects in developing countries and UK breakfast clubs.
Cash4Gold secured £10,000 for the charity by donating the money through the the Big Give website, whose sponsoring Reed Organisation matched pound-for-pound Cash4Gold’s pledge at the maximum contribution level of £5,000.
Brian Main, Charity Chief Executive of Feed The Children, said: “We thank Cash4Goldfor its extremely generous contribution and are deeply appreciative of the company’s—and MC Hammer’s—proven and long-standing commitment to the critical work that we do. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we are asking people to take time out for just one meal to think about the thousands of children who need our help in this country and abroad. In the week commencing Monday, February 22nd we’d like people to run or join a breakfast event that will raise money for Feed The Children (UK). ”
MC Hammer, three-time Grammy award-winner and celebrity endorser of Cash4Gold, said: “We’re delighted to support Feed the Children’s worthwhile campaign here in the UK. We want to help the campaign succeed in ensuring that more children around the world get the right they deserve – to eat breakfast. Cash4Gold and I have been involved in Feed the Children events for years, including distributing food to needy families and utilising social media to raise support for Feed The Children (US) following natural disasters in the Pacific and widespread flooding at home in Georgia.”
Jeff Aronson, CEO of Cash4Gold, said: “Cash4Gold has for a long time supported Feed The Children in the US and we’re pleased to be doing the same in the UK. We want to encourage as many people as possible to join us in supporting the vital work of this great organization. Hammer has five children and I have three, so helping kids is something very near and dear to our hearts. ”
Cash4Gold, the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from consumers, launched in the UK in July 2009 and chose Sheffield as its base due to its renowned industrial roots as the Steel City.
Feed The Children has a number of ideas of how people can raise money for Breakfast2Live:
• You can host a breakfast and invite friends (get items donated and then charge a small fee of say £5.00 per breakfast).
• Restaurants and cafes can donate a small percentage of the price of a special ‘Breakfast2Live’ on the menu to the charity, or have a collection tin on the day and ask for donations to the charity from everyone eating in the restaurant.
• If you have regular coffee mornings, get a batch of cakes or breakfast muffins donated or baked, invite your friends along and if everyone pays about £1.50 for a cup of tea or coffee and a muffin you can raise money that way.

Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 25, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.cash4gold.com), the world’s #1 buyer of precious metals from consumers, is not only dedicated to satisfying its customers, but also making sure its employees are taken care of and ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. This week, as each employee left Cash4Gold headquarters, they were given a turkey by company CEO Jeff Aronson and President Howard Mofshin to ensure that they were prepared for Thursday’s holiday.
Cash4Gold employs more than 300 people at its Pompano Beach, Fla. headquarters and yesterday each person left the building with a 12-14 pound Thanksgiving turkey. This adds up to around 4,000 pounds of free turkey for Cash4Gold’s staff. The employees were notified of the reward last week by Cash4Gold Co-Founders CEO Jeff Aronson and President Howard Mofshin, to ensure they didn’t buy them over the weekend. This has become an annual tradition at Cash4Gold since the company launched in 2007.
“Our employees work extremely hard all year and it’s important for us to make an extra effort around the holidays to ensure they thoroughly enjoy the season,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “We appreciate the dedication displayed every day at our headquarters and we wanted to reward everyone leading up to Thanksgiving.”

CASH4GOLD ESTIMATES MELT VALUE FOR MLS CUP AT $10,730
Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 23, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from consumers, congratulates the 2009 MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake on the title they captured Sunday. Real Salt Lake won the most coveted trophy in U.S. professional soccer at Qwest Field in Seattle after a hard-fought match that went into overtime before ultimately being settled on penalty kicks.
The champions of Major League Soccer hoisted the sterling silver Philip F. Anschutz Trophy, which weighs 43 pounds and stands 24 inches tall. Cash4Gold estimates that the trophy’s melt value is around $10,730.
The virtual appraisal from Cash4Gold, based upon the trophy’s reported weight and makeup, refers to the melt value, which is the value of the actual precious metals content included in an item. This does not account for the item’s craftsmanship or its artistic, historic, or sentimental value. By comparison, the Stanley Cup was estimated earlier this year to contain $7,500 worth of precious metals.
“Everyone at Cash4Gold congratulates Real Salt Lake on their 2009 title,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “At Cash4Gold we always provide a completely free evaluation to all our customers, but certainly don’t encourage people to send items such as these trophies, whose great sentimental and historical value probably outweigh the value of the precious metal they contain.”
Soccer has huge popularity worldwide and in 2009, Cash4Gold has undergone a widespread global expansion due to its success in the U.S. The company has launched its mail-in gold buying service in Canada, the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Spain.
Cash4Gold is the world’s #1 buyer of precious metals including gold, silver and platinum from the general public. Hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers have received millions of dollars from Cash4Gold since inception. For more information, connect with Cash4Gold on Facebook and Twitter.

BY BRINGING ITS SERVICE TO SPAIN
Spaniards Can Turn Their Unwanted Gold into Cash with the World’s #1 Online Gold Buyer
Pompano Beach, Fla. – November 16, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer from consumers, has launched its popular service in Spain. The company, which has serviced over 900,000 satisfied customers in the U.S., UK, Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands, will help the people of Spain monetize unwanted gold, silver and platinum items.
Spanish residents will now be able to use Cash4Gold to trade their broken or unwanted jewelry for cash easily and privately. Customers will no longer have to travel to jewelry stores or pawn shops to sell their items.
“We are continuing our successful move into Europe with a Spanish launch and we look forward to providing our 100% satisfaction guaranteed service to Spanish customers,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “As the leaders in the mail-in gold buying industry, we are proud to continue our international growth by offering Cash4Gold’s safe, convenient and 100% satisfaction-guaranteed service to the people of Spain.”
Cash4Gold accepts gold, silver and platinum items and pays customers based on the quality and quantity of precious metal contained in the item, also known as the melt value. This value is based purely on the actual precious metals contained in an item and does not factor in the decorative, artistic or sentimental value.
Cash4Gold customers enjoy an extremely easy customer service experience. First, consumers request a pre-paid and insured Refiner’s Return Pak, either through the Cash4Gold website or by calling the toll-free hotline. The envelope is sent directly to the customer’s home or place of business, whichever they prefer. The items that contain gold, silver or platinum are placed into the pre-paid and insured envelope and sent in the mail. The package arrives at Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility where it is appraised by the company’s trained and certified professionals.
After the appraisal is completed, Cash4Gold then sends a check to the customer or directly deposits the payment into their bank account. The payment method is selected by the customer. In the event that a customer decides they would like their items returned for any reason, they can contact Cash4Gold within 12 days to have the items returned at no cost. This is part of Cash4Gold’s 100% customer guarantee.

Cash4Gold.Com Sponsors Aaron Riley Versus Ross Pearson in Highly Anticipated Fight and Sees Growing Excitement in Britain Around Online Gold-Buying Services and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
LONDON, November 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Cash4Gold.com (http://www.cash4gold.com/), the world's #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, is sponsoring veteran MMA talent Aaron Riley in a highly anticipated fight in Manchester at the MEN Arena on 14 November. Riley, who competes in the lightweight division and boasts a record of 28-11-1 will face off against Sunderland native Ross Pearson, who was the season nine winner of reality TV show "The Ultimate Fighter."
Cash4Gold sponsors a variety of the world's most elite MMA stars, and the company has a long tradition of other sports sponsorships. The company also backs an MMA-related charitable organisation called the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, which was established by U.S. Army veteran and Hall of Famer Randy Couture to honor and raise money for soldiers wounded in action.
Jeff Aronson, CEO and Co-Founder of Cash4Gold.com, said: "Aaron Riley is a tough and talented fighter and Cash4Gold is proud to be in his corner. Cash4Gold is glad to be open for business in the United Kingdom and we have been thrilled so far with the outpouring of interest in our secure, easy, discreet and 100 percent satisfaction-guaranteed service that has redefined how people sell gold."
Like the service pioneered by Cash4Gold.com that enables customers to send items through the post, MMA is also generating tremendous excitement in the UK, becoming more mainstream and exploding in popularity. Cash4Gold sees its MMA sponsorships as an opportunity to further become part of British pop culture.

We were surprised and delighted to discover ourselves in an entertaining and highly unusual article in this month’s issue of ESPN The Magazine. In the story, fourth graders from an elementary school in Pittsburgh answer all kinds of sports-related questions.
In response to the question of what he would do with the Stanley Cup if he had it for a day, one young scholar by the name of JJ said: “I’d sell it to Cash4Gold.”
JJ may have just been giving a silly answer. Maybe he was displaying a keen business sense and expressing a desire to capitalize financially on a unique situation. Perhaps he knew that Cash4Gold estimated the Stanley Cup’s melt value at around $7,500 earlier this year.
The lesson that we draw from this is that even fourth graders know that Cash4Gold offers a quick, easy, secure and 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed service.
However, we must remind the public that all Cash4Gold customers must be age 21 or older and the lawful owners of the goods with absolute authority to sell the goods that are the subject of their transaction with Cash4Gold.

Cash4Gold today estimated the melt value of the championship hardware, which consists of 30 pounds of sterling silver and 30 gold-plated flags, at around $7,750. Melt value refers to the actual value of the precious metal contained in an object, and does not account for sentimental, historic or artistic value.
Clearly, the World Series trophy is not something that would be sent in to Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility to be melted down. However, the company has offered to do a free appraisal of the hardware.

Randomly chosen from among those who suggest the British celebrity that Cash4Gold ends up selecting will be one grand prize winner, who will be treated to tea with Hammer and the UK celebrity.
The contest is advertised on Cash4Gold’s UK website with a special message from three-time Grammy Award-Winner MC Hammer.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Peter Andre and Katie Price among favourites to star in new Cash4Gold ad
3/11/09 – London, England
What do Simon Cowell, Goldie and Katie Price have in common? They are just some of the celebs that have been suggested by the UK public to star in a future Cash4Gold television ad. Since the company launched its competition in September, thousands have voted for who they would like to star alongside MC Hammer and for a chance to win afternoon tea with the rapper and UK celeb.
Katie Price’s ex-husband Peter Andre and former TV presenter Jimmy Saville are also popular choices. Some of the worst suggestions for a UK celeb include Americans Mr. T, Jennifer Aniston, Madonna and Elvis Presley, whose death in 1977 makes him an extremely unlikely candidate for the job. Perhaps just slightly less likely than “The King” to appear is The Queen, much as we would love to see her next to MC Hammer in all her bling.
“We have seen a great response from the British public”, said Jeff Aronson, CEO and Founder of Cash4Gold. “Celebrity culture is as big here as it is in the US and people love the idea of seeing their chosen celeb star in our next ad.”
Suggestions can be submitted until the 15th November at http://uk.cash4gold.com/

Anderson’s platinum hair and famous physique were actually not what caught our eye (well, ok, maybe we did notice a little bit…) Instead, it was the recent revelation that she was having actual gold tiles installed around the swimming pool of her Malibu home and had platinum flooring in the house as well.
“I’m tiling the floor with platinum, that’s expensive,” Anderson is quoted as telling journalists.
Should Anderson so desire, Cash4Gold would be happy to purchase the gold and platinum tiles from her home. All she would need to do is request a pre-insured, pre-paid envelope from Cash4Gold to get the process started.
For thousands of other Americans all across the country, including many who might now have flooring adorned with precious metals, Cash4Gold is pleased to offer a service that is fast, safe, reliable and 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed.

The mail-in gold buyer Cash4Gold, which is currently undergoing an international expansion, released the following statement today praising soccer standout Donovan on his latest honor:
For Immediate Release
CASH4GOLD APPLAUDS LANDON DONOVAN ON RECORD 6TH U.S. NATIONAL TEAM PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD
Pompano Beach, Fla. – October 29, 2009 - Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, congratulates U.S. soccer standout Landon Donovan on receiving the Honda Player of the Year Award, handed out each year to the top player on the U.S. squad. This is the highest honor bestowed upon a U.S. soccer player. The 27-year-old received the award earlier this week at an event in Los Angeles.
Donovan is the all-time scoring leader for the U.S. National Team, scoring 42 goals in his 120 games played to date. He was a key factor in the U.S. team’s qualification for the upcoming South African World Cup in the summer of 2010. The forward notched five goals and added 10 assists in 15 games played this year for the U.S.
“Cash4Gold congratulates Landon Donovan on being honored with this well deserved award. He continues to set the gold standard in American soccer with his skill, hard work and dedication,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “Everyone at Cash4Gold is looking forward to watching Donovan and his U.S. teammates take on the world at the World Cup next summer.”
In July, Cash4Gold appraised the melt value of the Gold Cup when the U.S. National Team appeared in the final match against Mexico. The Mexico National Team prevailed and hoisted the trophy in New Jersey.
Following the company’s critically acclaimed Super Bowl commercial earlier this year, Cash4Gold ramped up its sports sponsorship initiatives. The company’s sponsorship portfolio includes the Washington Wizards, Milwaukee Bucks, Jim Dunn Racing, JD Motorsports and the legendary Randy “The Natural” Couture, among a number of other MMA competitors. The company has also teamed with three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer to support the international hunger relief organization Feed The Children.

CASH4GOLD CONTINUES SUCCESSFUL EUROPEAN EXPANSION BY LAUNCHING MAIL-IN GOLD BUYING SERVICE IN GERMANY
World’s #1 Gold Buyer Will Exchange Germans’ Unwanted Jewelry for Cash

Cash4Gold has over 900,000 satisfied customers in the U.S., UK, Canada and the Netherlands. Expanding into Germany continues Cash4Gold’s successful and ongoing European rollout.

The department recently confiscated a “set of custom made teeth grills” made of 10 karat yellow gold. The gold grill also includes six topaz stones and two citrine stones, and has an appraised retail value of $349. In a funny turn of events, the Nashville PD decided to put the grills up for auction with proceeds benefitting the Police State Drug Fund. Here’s to the department raising money for a good cause.
On a more personal note, if something like this were to arrive at Cash4Gold’s state-of-the-art processing facility, the company’s trained testers would immediately implement security escalation procedures and bring the out of the ordinary item to the attention of supervisors for further review. Earlier in 2009, Cash4Gold received a missing AFC Championship ring that the company was able to reunite with its owner, former Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Brenden Stai.
At Cash4Gold we frequently receive interesting items, including a one-pound gold pig, and we regularly receive dental gold. A grill like the one up for auction in Nashville has never been sent in to the company.
We are extremely proud to work with law enforcement here at home and around the country on an ongoing basis, and have received numerous commendations thanking us for our efforts.

The article broke the news of the upcoming launch in Germany and also mentioned the company’s recent expansions into the Netherlands, Canada and Great Britain.

Cash4Gold scraps for gold in European market push
LONDON, Oct 21 (Reuters) – Cash4Gold, one of the largest U.S. buyers of cast-off jewellery, is eyeing UK sales of 50 million pounds ($82.7 million) a year as precious metals prices soar and consumers fall on hard times.
The private company, which launched in 2007 and is now one of the largest direct-response advertisers on American TV, is taking on the pawnbrokers in Britain by offering cash for cast-off precious metals via its website and ad campaign.
“I woke up with the idea of going direct to the consumer to purchase their material … so they wouldn’t have the inconvenience of going to a pawnshop where they might run into a friend,” Cash4Gold CEO and founder, Jeff Aronson, told Reuters. “It’s been a very, very strong and intense growth,” he added.
After starting out as a spin-off from metal refinery Albar Precious Metals, the company has expanded out of its home market to Canada and the Netherlands as well as Britain.
It will begin operations in Germany on Monday and plans to launch in another six countries in the EU, to bring the company to the “one billion dollar mark” in three years, said Aronson.
Cash4Gold, based in Pompano Beach, Florida, receives tens of thousands of packs per week in the United States, containing defunct wedding rings, single earrings or broken chains in gold, silver or platinum.
The business model looks buoyant as the gold price continues to rise, with spot gold topping a record high of $1,070 last week.
In a bid to raise its status as a household name in the United States, Cash4Gold aired an advert during this year’s Super Bowl featuring rapper M.C. Hammer and TV host Ed McMahon.
Aronson said it will bring the same high-profile media campaign to the UK, with its advertising budget accounting for up to 90 percent of total start-up costs and Cash4Gold processing over 30,000 transactions since launching in July.
The company, which will also unveil a high-end jewellery buying service within a few months in the UK, is targeting sales of 40 to 50 million pounds for the year in the UK, he added.
“We’ve paid a couple of million of pounds out already with somewhere in between 70,000 to 80,000 packs requested,” he added. Each pack is typically worth around 50 to 70 pounds.
UK-listed pawnbrokers H&T and Albemarle & Bond have a headstart over new market entrants.
H&T introduced gold-purchasing in its stores in 2007 and now has 54 gold-buying stands in shopping malls across the UK, helping lift first-half profits by nearly a third.
It is targeting 100 Gold Bar stalls by Christmas.
But some analysts warn the gold bonanza will not last. “We expect reduced gold purchasing volumes in 2010,” said Robert Sanders, analyst at Arbuthnot Securities. “There are only so many pieces of broken jewellery.”
Moreover, the fortunes of new, online operators will run out first, if gold prices falter.
“These companies offer cheaper solutions, yet come with the problems involved in a postal transaction … many of these companies are likely to fade away as the gold price drops,” added Sanders.
Yet Aronson argues there is still an untapped market of Internet savvy customers.
“I refer to ourselves as a disruptive technology, meaning 10 years ago, nobody would ever think of doing anything else than going to a bookstore to buy a book. Now today, is there anyone who wouldn’t buy a book from Amazon?”
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
The company’s soft launch has gone smoothly and Cash4Gold’s German website is up and running. Customers in Deutschland can immediately begin utilizing Cash4Gold’s services, and some already are.

Hammer noted that he and Cash4Gold had made donations to the charity and asked others to do so as well.

When I saw what was going on, I wanted to do something.”

CASH4GOLD CONFIRMS PLANS FOR DANCE PARTY IN THE VAULTS
AT COMPANY HEADQUARTERS WITH THE LEGENDARY MC HAMMER
Pompano Beach, Fla. – October 15, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer from consumers, today confirmed that it is currently planning a party for next year’s Super Bowl® that will feature dancing in the vaults at the Cash4Gold headquarters. Three-time Grammy Award-winner and Cash4Gold celebrity spokesman MC Hammer (http://twitter.com/MCHammer) recently broke the news with the following tweet: “I'm throwing a party (invite only) inside the Vaults at the Cash4Gold HQ during Super Bowl Week!! Gold will be melted while we dance!!”
“Hammer and I first began talking about this idea for a party two months ago,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “Our furnaces have to be at least 1900 degrees in order for us to melt gold, so there is no doubt that with help from Hammer this is going to be a really hot party. Since Hammer’s initial tweet we have been inundated with calls from people looking to get on the invite list.”
Within Cash4Gold’s facility only a limited number of individuals are given access to the company’s three state-of-the-art vaults. All Cash4Gold employees undergo a thorough background check before being hired by the company, and all individuals who enter and exit the processing center are subjected to a thorough security screening by the armed guards who patrol the facility. Additional security procedures will be in full force during the time of the dance party, for which an exact date has not yet been set. However, the party is being planned to coincide with next year’s Super Bowl which is being held in Miami near Cash4Gold’s Pompano Beach headquarters.
Aronson also noted, “Our Super Bowl commercial with MC Hammer kicked off a long-standing friendship and business relationship which we look forward to continuing, whether we are working hard together, playing hard or giving back to the community through charitable work.”
Cash4Gold and MC Hammer recently teamed up to support the international hunger relief organization Feed The Children following the natural disasters in the Pacific and widespread flooding in Georgia and have also partnered on other events aimed at helping recession-hit families in the Stockton, CA area.

During O’Brien’s monologue, he talked about President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, joking that Obama sent the medal in to Cash4Gold for cash. Of course, the president did not send in his Nobel Peace Prize to the company, but each week thousands of Americans do send in unwanted or broken gold, silver and platinum items for cash.
Here is the text of the letter:
I wanted to take a moment and thank each of you for this amazing opportunity. When I was hired at Cash4Gold I was not sure what to expect, but I have grown both professionally and as an individual with a group of people that make me feel like family. I am very proud that I was chosen for this opportunity out of all the people in my department. It is an experience I will remember the rest of my life and I cannot thank you enough for.
I was able to see a totally different culture, taste fish and chips, hear a different accent, grow professionally, learn leadership skills and expand my knowledge of other departments. While I was in the U.K. a personal issue came up in the United States and I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all your help and concern on the situation. I just wanted to show my appreciation for the opportunity you gave me. Thank you again,

FOLLOWING SERIES OF DEVASTATING NATURAL DISASTERS
3-Time Grammy Winner Hammer Uses Social Media Site Twitter to Rally Support and Mobilize the Masses
Pompano Beach, Fla. – October 1, 2009 – International hip-hop sensation and three-time Grammy Award-winner MC Hammer and leading mail-in gold buyer Cash4Gold have teamed up to assist hunger relief organization Feed The Children in the wake of recent devastating natural disasters in the Philippines, American Samoa and Indonesia, and the widespread flooding across Georgia.
“I am asking my followers on Twitter to also follow my example and to do their part to help out those involved in these tragedies,” said MC Hammer (http://twitter.com/MCHammer). “Thousands of people here at home and abroad are facing a very difficult time, which is why I’m urging everyone to support Feed The Children, a tremendous organization helping to get these victims back on their feet.”
MC Hammer has a long-standing relationship and history of charitable work with Feed The Children. At a recent event sponsored by Cash4Gold, he and Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson helped the organization hand out meals to families hard hit by the recession in the Stockton, CA area.
Following the news of the disaster in the Pacific and the widespread flooding in Georgia, MC Hammer immediately turned again to his close friend Aronson, asking that Cash4Gold donate as well.

Subject: Thank you guys so much!!!!!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you guys for the experience of being part of the team responsible for setting up the Cash4Gold offices in the UK. I am grateful for the chance to prove myself and to show that I can exceed people’s expectations of what my role is. I have learned a lot from the weeks that I spent in the UK and believe that the experience will enhance my performance here in the USA. I have expanded my knowledge of the company and its inner workings and I will bring this improved knowledge to my current role in the USA.
It has been a pleasure to work outside of my usual role and I believe that I have done the best job possible in training staff members in the UK. I will look forward to the possibility of a return trip to see how the UK offices are progressing.
I would like to thank L and T for standing by my side through this wonderful journey. There couldn’t have been anyone better than those two.
I enjoyed learning new things like it’s not “mail” but “post,” I’ve tasted over 300 different types of “fish & chips.” I was also able to explore the city of London. I doubt I would have ever been able to experience any of England if I wasn’t working with the best company ever…. CASH4GOLD! I can go on, but I have to get back to work :).

Aronson told the students the story of how he created Cash4Gold and shared his tips for how to succeed in business. Aronson addressed how Cash4Gold has revolutionized the buying and selling of gold through the creation of the mail-in refining industry. He also spoke about how the company has harnessed the power of the internet and direct response marketing to attract customers.
Prof. Eldon H. Bernstein, Ph.D., the organizer of the event, said, “I can’t think of anybody who would be a more inspiring and interesting person to talk to an entrepreneurship class than Jeff Aronson. His enthusiasm and interest in mentoring college students is great, and provides an exceptionally valuable experience for them.”
After delivering extemporaneous remarks for roughly half an hour, Aronson opened up the floor for a wide-ranging question and answer period for the students in attendance. Many of the questions pertained to Cash4Gold’s relationships with MC Hammer and the late Ed McMahon, both of whom were featured in Cash4Gold’s highly regarded 2009 Super Bowl commercial, which featured the two stars.
This was the second appearance for Aronson at Lynn, who handed out his business card to the students at the conclusion of the event and encouraged them to apply for internships at Cash4Gold.
“Jeff engages the students, inspires questions and creates great interest,” said Prof. Bernstein. “He does a great job.”

CASH4GOLD INVITES SUNDAY’S WINNERS TO MAIL IN PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS TROPHIES FOR APPRAISAL
Pompano Beach, Fla. – September 21, 2009 – Cash4Gold (www.cash4gold.com), the world’s #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, has invited the winners from the Primetime Emmy® Awards to send in their trophies for appraisal. The highly-entertaining telecast aired Sunday night from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
Each of the coveted Primetime Emmy Awards trophies is created by hand, stands 14 inches tall and weighs 4.75 pounds. The statuette is composed of a steel base covered with four layers including 24-carat gold and silver, among other non-precious metals.
If a trophy was sent to Cash4Gold’s secure processing center, the company and its team of certified appraisers could utilize state-of-the-art assaying equipment to calculate the exact percentages of the various metals contained in the Emmy trophy and to determine the statuette’s melt value. Melt value refers to the amount of actual precious metals contained in an item that a refinery such as Cash4Gold can extract and recycle, and does not account for artistic, symbolic, or historic value.
“Each year we look forward to watching the Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast to see which talented entertainers take home TV’s greatest honor,” said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. “We congratulate this year’s Emmy Award winners and invite them to send in their trophies for appraisal. As always, television fans and other Americans are welcome to send in their broken gold and silver jewelry as well.”
During recent months, Cash4Gold has offered appraisals for a number of trophies in the sports world including; the NHL’s Stanley Cup ($7,500), the NBA’s Larry O’Brien Trophy ($3,500) and the U.S. Open men’s singles tennis trophy ($1,563), among others.
Cash4Gold provides residents in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. with an easy way to monetize their unwanted or broken gold, silver or platinum items. The company is dedicated to providing a private, easy and 100% satisfaction guaranteed service to its customers looking to sell jewelry.
