The calendar may still say December, but the New Year is just around the corner and before you know it, February 20 will be here and it will be time for the Jewish Community Center’s 125 Gala.
This is your opportunity to dress up and have a great time celebrating the many ways the JCC has touched and changed lives over its 125 years and to take a peek at some of the exciting things the future holds for the next 125.
The evening will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Downtown and will include dinner, specialty cocktails and dancing with The Sly Band.
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.
Tickets are $125 each and a table of 10 is $1,100. Next generation tickets will be available at a discounted rate for those under 30 years old.
Do you have photos and memorabilia from any JCC program that you’d like to share? A commemorative program sharing highlights and memories from the JCC during last 125 years is being created. 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.
Some people have stepped forward to be table captains, but additional volunteers are needed.
