For 40 years, we have been wandering aimlessly through Jewish Louisville trying to find our way – well, maybe not wandering aimlessly – but on Saturday, January 25 at 7 p.m., all members of the Jewish community ages 40-64, are invited to park their camels (or perhaps their cars) and celebrate
their contributions to Louisville’s Jewish community. It will be an evening of fun with friends at a cocktail reception featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres at the home of Joe Hertzman.
This event, “Lost Tribe: We Were Lost and Now We’re Found!”, is especially designed for this group of 40-64 year old donors to the Annual Federation Campaign to celebrate 40 years of wandering through Jewish Louisville – building our institutions, investing our time, presenting our ideas and using our creativity to continue to build the wonderful Jewish community we inherited from our parents and grandparents.
“We haven’t offered an opportunity for this group of donors to get together and celebrate in many years, even though we ask for their contributions to Campaign,” said 2014 Campaign Chair and Lost Tribe Event Co-Chair Doug Gordon. “This year, we’re going to celebrate the good things that this group of donors does for our community.”
“It will be a time to reflect, looking back on our younger days, have some lighthearted fun, enjoy some music and good food, and to take a look at how important our continued support of the community is. We’ll have a good time and raise some money, too,” explained Julie Ellis, event co-chair.
A number of people have stepped forward to serve on the honorary committee for the event. Doug and Julie are counting on many others to do the same. Watch for your invitation, coming soon.
