Local Lions Roar Loud in DC among 1,300 at ILOJC (September 2016)
About the Event
Some of South Palm Beach County’s most resoundingly philanthropic women roared their way to Washington, DC for a few action-packed September days at the biennial International Lion of Judah Conference (ILOJC). Fifty strong among 1,300 Lions from across the globe, they proudly comprised one of the event’s largest community delegations.

Easily recognized by their fuchsia-pink, Lion-embroidered pashmina shawls, our Lions began with two days of special activities together. They also learned, bonded and got inspired at conference plenaries and breakout sessions with some of today’s most respected, high-level speakers in religion, culture and art, business, politics and philanthropy. And they feted our own Emily Grabelsky, who received the prestigious Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award at the conference.
Our Lions returned home energized, galvanized and ready to launch our 2016-17 Women’s Philanthropy season – with an even deeper commitment to their vital work. As advocates and ambassadors, as leaders and philanthropists, they are ready for an exciting new year – a year that will bring new Lions and increased gifts to meet the ever-greater calls for help from down the street to across the world.
