On the morning of May 30, 2019, more than 500 women gathered at the Boston Marriott Newton to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the
Center for Early Relationship Support® and honor Peggy H. Kaufman for her incredible leadership. Thank you to everyone who joined us!

Together we raised a record-breaking $425,000, including $72,000 raised in the room that will support the Peggy H. Kaufman Endowed Fund. This fund will help us expand the reach of CERS by partnering with early learning centers in Greater Boston and embedding our services in low-income neighborhoods to serve vulnerable families.

JF&CS would like to thank those who helped make this the most successful Women's Breakfast to date: event co-chairs Lauren E. Rubin and Lori Shaer, honorary co-chairs Betsy Cohen, Jessica Myers, and Lorri Owades, the Women's Breakfast event committee, sponsors, ticket buyers, and long-time and new friends. Your generosity continues to make CERS a unique and invaluable program in our community.

Finally, a special thank you to our guest speaker, Betsy Johnson, who shared her own story of connection to JF&CS and how the lessons she learned 16 years ago have stayed with her and continue to help her through difficult situations.

Below, you can watch a video about the founding and evolution of CERS that premiered at the Women's Breakfast:
