To All Who Attended JFS' First Ever Virtual
Seize the Dream Gala,



Dear Friends,

Thank you to all who were able to join me last night for our first ever virtual Seize the Dream Gala!

I am extraordinarily proud of the work our staff does every day to help our neighbors in need, and it was a privilege to share with you their work, as well as the stories of our incredible honorees, each one a warrior for social justice, each one a passionate advocate for those most vulnerable in our community.

While we weren't able to hand you copies of the 2020 Seize the Dream Tribute Book , I am excited to share it with you here:
I encourage you to download the book and read the countless messages celebrating our honorees. Share it widely through email and social media. Also, please patronize the businesses and restaurants listed therein - many are struggling during this difficult time and your support can help sustain them.

I also extend a special thanks to the following who helped make the online event a huge success:
