UJFT Young Leadership Campaign hosts donor appreciation party

by | Jun 7, 2013 | Other News

The evening of Saturday, June 1, approximately 75 donors to the Young Leadership Campaign (YLC), gathered at Bayville Golf Club for a special donor recognition event. Guests arrived at the idyllic setting to find cornhole games in progress. As the sun set on the bay, guests gathered around the cornhole boards, mingled and laughed over wine and orange crush cocktails.

After sunset, Marc Abrams, the outgoing chair of the YLC gathered the assembled for brief remarks, in which he thanked donors for their generosity and reported that the campaign has more than tripled its size in funds raised since the campaign was launched four years ago. Jason Rosenberg then led the group in a Havdalah service with a painterly sunset over the bay as a backdrop.

The YLC donors were joined by other leaders of the community for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. “Ultimately, there are a lot of young Jewish people in Tidewater. The people who were invited to this event have proven that they care about our community and the world. This event was one small way of recognizing and thanking them for that commitment,” says Amy Weinstein, Young Adult Division director.
