We are really excited to be chairing the 95th Anniversary Gala. The work of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters has always impressed and inspired us. When one of our best friends passed away, JBBBS helped the children by providing incredible mentors. This agency provides life-changing services, and we are working hard to provide a unique and fun evening in support of the organization. Through funds raised, JBBBS aspires to match even more children in need to adult mentors and adults with disabilities to new friends.
The gala is just around the corner – and the venue, the House of Blues, is a fabulous place to celebrate the amazing work this agency does. It will be followed by cocktail style hors d’oeuvres and buffet stations. And a live band, a hypnotist, a street artist and caricaturist will keep us rockin’ n rollin’ all night long.
We’re also assembling a fantastic set of auction items! Sneak peak: A visit to the set of Modern Family; the opportunity to fly a fighter jet; luxury vacations; a professional wine-tasting for 12 in your home…just to name a few.
We’re also incorporating mobile-bidding for the first time at this year’s gala. Pull out your smartphones (and keep them charged up)! Bid from the bar or the dance floor. Never leave the action, and make sure to go home with your favorite items. Watch items, see when you’ve been outbid and snatch them up at the last minute.
We look forward to seeing you on March 28,
Beth and David Franklin
