Shames JCC to Honor Seven Rivertown Residents at Gala ‘Friend-Raiser’
With the theme, Building Community Together, the Shames Jewish Community Center on the Hudson will hold its 19th annual celebration at Life The Place To Be on Wednesday, May 23, from 6:30-10 p.m. As in past years, the celebration will honor representatives selected by the Shames and several synagogues that are part of the Rivertowns Jewish Consortium.
Changing the focus from “fund-raiser to friend-raiser,” in addition to the honorees, the cocktail party will feature comedian Joel Chasnoff, food stations, dessert reception and an auction in a lively atmosphere that brings people together for a fun evening.
Life The Place To Be is at 2 Lawrence Street in Ardsley. Cost for the evening is $180 per person and proceeds will strengthen the Rivertowns Jewish Consortium and support JCC school and camp scholarships. Reservations can be made by logging on to www.shamesjcc.org/annualcelebration.
Honored by the Shames JCC this year are Renee and Michael Shamosh, of Irvington, Laurie Davidowitz of Irvington, Jennifer Povman of Sleepy Hollow, Dobbs Ferry resident Roberta Roos, and Victoria and Richard Greif of Dobbs Ferry.
