BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach) — An elegant evening of inspiration is planned for hundreds of prominent Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County donors at this year’s Sandler Family Major Gifts Event. They’ll gather at 6:00 pm on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at The Polo Club in Boca Raton for a cocktail reception, dinner and a moving keynote address from Daniel Libeskind, celebrated architect, artist, professor and set designer.
Celebrating major donors to the Federation’s 2018 Annual Campaign, the longstanding premier event in local Jewish philanthropy is named for Phyllis & Harvey Sandler and family.
“We are honored to offer our vital major donors this opportunity to hear from a prestigious speaker with such a powerful story,” said Naomi Steinberg, who is co-chairing the event with her husband, Rich, and with Elaine and Bernie Roberts. “Daniel Libeskind’s groundbreaking international work has placed him in the forefront of contemporary architectural design.”
“We are also eager to learn about Daniel Libeskind’s inspiring personal journey,” added Bernie Roberts. “Born in Poland to Holocaust survivors, his family first resettled to a kibbutz in Israel and then to New York when Daniel was a teenager. He explored these influences in his autobiography, Breaking Ground: An Immigrant’s Journey from Poland to Ground Zero.”
“Our Federation could not possibly accomplish what we do to meet the rising essential human needs in this community, in Israel and beyond without the overwhelming compassion, generosity and leadership of our stalwart champions – our major donors,” said Elaine Roberts.
“They understand that leaders must lead and draw others into our critical mission,” added Rich Steinberg. “We look forward to a wide audience with adults of all ages from throughout the community.”
The $150 couvert includes valet parking. Cocktail attire is requested and dietary laws will be observed. The Polo Club is located at 5400 Champion Blvd, Boca Raton.
A minimum $10,000 household gift to the 2018 UJA/Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Annual Campaign is required to attend. For adult children and grandchildren of Federation’s major donors attending through the L’Dor V’Dor initiative, only the couvert is required.
