Have you gotten your tickets for the Jewish Community Center’s 125 Gala on February 20? It may be the hottest ticket in town and more than 170 people have already made their reservations.
The evening will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Downtown and will include dinner, signature cocktails, special performances by familiar faces and dancing with The Sly Band. If you aren’t familiar with The Sly Band, you are in for a treat.
The group, an 11-piece band from Nashville, will get you and your friends up and grooving to a variety of Motown, pop, Top 40, rock, and even swing songs. They come highly recommended by several members of our community. So make your plans now to dress up and celebrate 125 years of Jewish history in Louisville. You’ll even get to hear about some of the exciting things the future holds for the next 125.
Tickets are $125 each and a table of 10 is $1,100. Next generation tickets will be available at a discounted rate of $50 for those under 30 years old.
If you can’t make it that night, you can still be part of the fun by sharing a memory in the commemorative program. Tribute ads are available for $36 to all community members who wish to share a favorite photo and a one-line memory or tribute to someone special. All proceeds from ad sales in the commemorative program will support the JCC’s camp and membership scholarship funds.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. This is a great opportunity for both the JCC and its many business partners to honor each other’s roles in the community over the past 125 years.
Whether you grew up at the JCC attending camp, learning to swim, going to Hebrew School or being part of a teen club where you made lifelong friends or you are new to Louisville’s Jewish community and have found the JCC a great place to work out, meet people and bring your children, make plans now to join the celebration.
