Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s elevate: the JVS Gala!
Together, we raised over $460,000 to benefit JVS programs. Whether you joined us this year, or have attended a gala in the past, we want to thank you for your support.
We were proud to honor Doris and Robert Gordon, who are longtime JVS supporters. Doris served on JVS’s Board of Directors for many years, and both Doris and Robert have been active members of Combined Jewish Philanthropies’ efforts to strengthen the Jewish community in Dnipro, Ukraine.
We also honored State Street Corporation for their support of education and workforce development in Boston. They were one of the first investors in JVS’s Bridges to College program, which prepares non-traditional students for higher education and middle-skill jobs.
Thank you to Campe Goodman, Chair Emeritus of the JVS Board, and Kira Khazatsky, JVS Chief Program Officer, for leading a fantastic live appeal, which raised over $80,000! Thank you to all of you who pledged to support JVS’s work. You may fulfill your pledge commitment online or by mailing a check to our office (Attn: Development, 75 Federal Street, 3rd Floor, Boston MA 02110).
Thank you to our client ambassadors, who shared inspiring accounts of how JVS has elevated their lives. In particular, thank you to our featured speaker Lydia Tumwesige and her uplifting story.
We want to thank our Gala Planning Chair, Margie Glazer, and extend our sincere gratitude to our Host Committee and all of the sponsors.
