Made in New York Benefit

The Jewish Board of Family & Children’s Services celebrated its Annual Spring Benefit, Made in New York on April 21, 2010.

The event celebrated the work and support of JBFCS Board of Trustees Chairman, John A Herrmann, JBFCS Vice President David F. Everett and renowned philanthropist, media and business mogul, Russell Simmons, Co-Founder of Def Jam and the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding. Emceed by WNBC Anchor DeMarco Morgan, the special event was held at New York City’s Guastavino’s with such guests as model Katie Rost, Ralph Lauren model Chris Collins, Rabbi Marc Schneier, and socialites Jean Shafiroff, Ann Rapp and Sharon Bush, who enjoyed a cocktail reception and seated dinner.

Addressing the evening’s guests, Executive Vice President & CEO, Paul Levine expressed, “Tonight’s event was a success on so many levels. We raised over $800,000 to support our work, we introduced the agency to a whole new audience of supporters— and we celebrated the outcomes of our work by featuring a number of former and current clients who have overcome their not-insignificant struggles with our help. Many of them have gone on to great things. That is what this agency is all about: helping people put their lives back together and succeeding despite the odds. I am extremely proud of what we do.”
