Please join us to celebrate JRC and help us grow together as a community on Saturday, April 29, 2017!
About JRC IN BLOOM
Every year, JRC throws a fabulous party for members to enjoy together with delicious food and fine wines, entertainment and a live auction. The purpose of the night is twofold: to have a great time together, and also to raise important funds to support our congregation.
- Donate something of significant value for our live auction, like the use of a vacation home, event tickets (sporting or cultural), meals (restaurants or catered), behind-the-scenes tours, or one-of-a-kind experiences like shadowing a professional for a day or a unique outing.
- Donate high-end wines (valued from $20-$100 and up) and gift cards for our wine cork pull and other fun activities we'll have at the JRC IN BLOOM gala.
- Host a themed "buy-in" party or event, like a wine/spirits tasting, bicycle donut tour, fun run/pub crawl, progressive dinner, craft or cooking class, sports playoffs party, and more. You choose the date, organize and run the event, provide necessary supplies and refreshments, and cover all expenses for the event. The proceeds from event tickets go to JRC.
- Be a "Master Gardener" underwriter. To ensure the sustainability of this event, we rely on a few special donors each at a minimum of $2,500 to underwrite the food and drink costs. For your generosity, you will receive two complimentary tickets to the JRC IN BLOOM gala and recognition in the printed program and JRC's communications. If you can support JRC IN BLOOM in this important way, please contact Joel Gratch at [email protected].
Why the JRC IN BLOOM gala matters
Whenever we gather at JRC as a community, our ties become stronger. And our fundraising goal of $75,000 for this event is integral to our ability to provide the quality programs and services that we value as JRC members.
