Celebrate Our Jewish Community at THE Opening EVENT

From across the vibrant local Jewish community, adults of all ages who support the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will gather once again for a great time celebrating all the good they do together. This year, more than 500 strong are expected at THE Opening EVENT at Boca West Country Club on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.

THE Opening EVENT Co-Chairs (L-R): Mark & Karen Dern, Joanna & Bryan Drowos

Festivities will kick off at 6:30 p.m. with heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. The evening will also include a performance by Turnstiles, the acclaimed Billy Joel Tribute Band.

“We invite everyone, from longtimers to newcomers and everyone in between, to join us for a great night of fun, food and music,” said Karen Dern, who is co-chairing the evening with her husband, Mark, and with Joanna and Bryan Drowos. “We’ll also get an inside look at what a powerful difference we make for so many lives, through partnerships with our agencies, schools and synagogues, as we kick up the energy for our work together in the year ahead.”

“There is so much to celebrate about our work, from down the street in our community to across the globe in Israel and over 70 other countries,” said Bryan Drowos. “Together, we provide lifesaving support, educate the next generation and enhance our Jewish heritage as we build, shape and strengthen Jewish communities. We succeed because so many of our neighbors share their compassion, generosity and unique gifts. Join us at THE Opening EVENT to feel the joy and strength of our community, and be part of that difference for those who need us.”
