6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

Each spring, Jewish Family & Children’s Service hosts the annual Benefit, our largest fundraising event of the year. Funds raised ensure that resources are available to support the innovative and comprehensive programs that JF&CS provides the community. Each day brings new challenges, from young parents in crisis and families facing financial emergencies to isolated elders and people with disabilities in need of help. JF&CS assists individuals and families in need regardless of their background or ability to pay.
