Last year, over 450 people gathered to celebrate The J’s 125th anniversary. Since then, we’ve received such heartfelt feedback about how nice it was catching up with old friends and meeting new members of our growing community and how lovely it would be to have more social opportunities like this in the future.
Well, we listened and you won’t need to wait another 125 years! Save the date, Thursday, March 30, for the Generation to Generation Gala, a celebration for you, the people who make up the fabric of our vibrant community.
The J, in partnership with Jaye Bittner and her family, will also use this special event to present the inaugural Annette Simon Sagerman L’dor V’dor Award to a very special person who truly embodies the spirit of Annette Sagerman z’’l. For 65 years, Annette was the face of the JCC and as President and CEO Sara Wagner said, “Annette was a mentor, a leader and a champion of every person who walked through our doors. She believed with her whole heart the JCC should be open to everyone.”
The Generation to Generation Gala will be co-chaired by Bob and Margie Kohn and Jaye Bittner. The event will also include a Young Adult Division “After Party” chaired by Jodi Halpern.
Stay tuned for more details and don’t forget to save the date, March 30, 2017. You won’t want to miss it!
