JRC Birthday Bash


Saturday, April 14, 2018
Celebrating 10 years in our platinum LEED-certified synagogue building

Get Tickets


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.

This year, we're doing things a little differently. Instead of a traditional sit-down dinner, we're planning a festive evening of games and dancing with a DJ and an abundance of appetizers, desserts, and drinks. Come ready to bid for exclusive experiences in our live auction and sign up for a variety of unique buy-in parties that will keep the party going for the rest of the year.

Why the JRC BIRTHDAY BASH 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. 

There's only one thing that makes the JRC BIRTHDAY BASH a success: YOU

There are many ways to ensure the BIRTHDAY BASH will be a fantastic event for our community:

  • Mark your calendar now, and buy tickets (available later this winter) for the BIRTHDAY BASH - and you'll need plenty of dancing partners, so get your friends to join you!

  • Request donations of gift cards and items from your favorite restaurants, salons, stores, and theatres. Businesses are happy to do it (it's good PR) - here's a handy form to make it easier.
  • Create a fun Buy-in Party to offer after the BIRTHDAY BASH. Buy-in Parties are activities hosted by JRC members with all ticket costs going to benefit the congregation. Submit your party idea here or contact Reese Gratch at [email protected] if you have questions.
  • Help the BIRTHDAY BASH Committee with advance planning, selling tickets on Sunday mornings, marketing, or decorating the social hall.
  • Offset the cost of producing the BIRTHDAY BASH by becoming an underwriter. Contact Joel Gratch at [email protected] if you'd like to support JRC in this special way.

Questions? Ideas? The JRC BIRTHDAY BASH Committee wants to hear all about how you like to celebrate! Contact Committee Co-Chairs Sara Cohn and Jeany Soshnik at [email protected].
