Dear JESPY Friends & Families,

Battle of the Chefs: A Benefit for JESPY was such a memorable event that we wanted to share more photos from the evening's fundraiser. Thanks to your support, our clients will successfully continue their path toward independence and opportunities.
Thanks, as well, to Chef Ivan of Orange Lawn Tennis Club and Chef Tony of Edgewood Country Club for providing delicious cuisine for attendees and for their dedication to supporting an important cause. Congratulations again go to our honoree families - The Cottingham Family, The Oppenheimer Family, and The Plotnick Family.
