Congregation Beth Israel  
July 9, 2018 ~ 26 Tamuz
This Week at CBI    


Dear Friend of CBI;

The JFF is a huge undertaking, requiring time and effort from many members. The financial success also depends on sponsorships and you have been more than generous. But there is a limit as to what we can ask of you.
We need to seek sponsors from the community in general. We do not have the manpower or the connections to solicit sponsors from the vast number of local businesses but we have a strong message that should appeal to many of them.
  • This is our 31st year of doing this event. It has become a staple in the peninsula's summertime agenda.
  • The JFF presents a major advertising opportunity for local businesses. Thousands of people attend this event and have the opportunity to see the names of the local businesses and services that have chosen to sponsor.
  • We have initiated a gelt reward program whereby sponsors can attend the event and receive tokens redeemable for food and drinks.
You have friends who are in business locally; you know or work with people who make decisions or have an advertising budget; you frequent businesses that rely on local patronage. Please approach these people and see if they would be interested in advertising or participating in this event. Give them the sponsorship form (click below).

If you need assistance either in approaching these prospects or asking them to participate, give me the name of the business and the person to contact with the contact information and one of us will pursue it.

Thank you for your assistance

Michael Addison
