The Business and Professional Division of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County has redefined the term business casual. Adding fun, purpose and value to the phrase, they have created Business Casual – a series of innovative, casual, activity-based networking opportunities exclusively for women looking to build their professional and community alliances.

On March 20, 2014, Business Casual offers an opportunity for women to express their artistic talents while enhancing professional contacts, with a night of Making Passover Personal at Craft It, 3833 W Hillsboro Road, Deerfield Beach. Cost is $36. Starting at 6:00 p.m., the evening includes dinner with an interactive lesson in designing a custom Passover Seder Plate to take home. Business Casual is open to all Jewish business and professional women interested in making connections and having fun.

Consider this a Girls Night Out with a greater purpose. While building their professional relationships, these dynamic women are strengthening their community as well. Already creating a buzz in the community, Business Casual chairs Tracy Kawa and Stephanie Midler are energized by the enthusiastic response and unlimited opportunities ahead. Through Business Casual, dynamic women have already enjoyed creating their own masterpiece at Vino Van Gogh and learning the fundamentals of sushi rolling at Asia Restaurant.

According to co-chair Tracy Kawa, “Forging new bonds in business was never so much fun. Business Casual combines the best of all worlds. What a wonderful opportunity for women in the Jewish community to form strategic alliances while having a great time.” Business Casual encourages its members to leave the formalities of work back at the office and enjoy engaging, inventive, enjoyable experiences while building new professional, personal, and community alliances. It’s a natural extension of the Federation’s Business and Professional Division (B&P) that brings together entrepreneurs and professionals from a wide variety of fields for premium networking, learning and helping the community.

Business Casual co-chair Stephanie Midler sums the experience up, “Business Casual provides unique and engaging ways for Jewish women to create new relationships professionally, community-wide, and personally. I am thrilled to be part of this dynamic group and look forward to each enjoyable networking opportunity.”

Join this casual approach to business, bonding and building community. RSVP is required to attend Making Passover Personal at 6:00 pm on Thursday, March 20, 2014 at Craft It. Cost is $36 per person and includes dinner with dietary laws observed. A minimum gift of $180 to the 2014 UJA/Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Annual Campaign is required when you attend a second program in the series. Couvert is additional.
