We first met Daren Lasky last December at the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s second annual Jerry Weintraub Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament honoring the late legendary producer, manager, promoter and writer. “THE JERRY” brought together great entertainment and sports celebrities, top business and community leaders and a host of PGA tour professionals at THE MADISON CLUB in La Quinta, CA.
Upon arrival Daren had received his Ritmo Mundo Limited Edition “555” watch which was designed by Ritmo founder, Ali Soltani and Jerry Weintraub many years ago, produced specifically for this event, and limited to only 100 watches. He quickly came over to check out our watch display, listened with intention on our brand history and product details, asked questions, and ultimately purchased two of our Quantum III watches for his sons Noah and Nate as Christmas gifts.
He continued to chat with Ali throughout the night and next day as the event continued. Vowing to stay in touch you take each others phone numbers, follow each other on social media and reach out via text messages. By this time Christmas was fast approaching, and we hoped that Daren’s sons loved their gifts. The best news we can received from a client is that the recipient “loves the watch”!
Through social media and a message from Daren we learned that his son Nate was in a major auto accident and required emergency surgery. Daren later reached out inquiring about a new strap for Nate’s watch as it was damaged in the accident when first responders attended to him. Here is his story as shared:
Ritmo Mundo president, Ali Soltani (pictured below) flew to Arizona this past week to personally visit Nate and his family. His story has touched our hearts and Ali was amazed by Nate’s progress and positivity. He also had a chance to try on a few more Ritmo watches and we have the feeling he is well on his way to becoming a Ritmo watch collector!
Ritmo Mundo could not be more grateful to hear all the positive updates on Nate’s progress. After three surgeries he is home and has taken the first steps in a long recovery process. We continue to offer our love and support to the entire Lasky family. Our clients mean so much more that just another watch sold. We truly welcome them into the Ritmo family, caring for our clients and their watches for years to come. #natestrong
