A Giving Celebration Jewish Geriatric Services’ 94th Annual Donor Event

The spirit of Broadway and laughter was in the air during Jewish Geriatric Services’ (JGS) 94th Annual Donor Event, which was held on November 6th at Temple Beth El in Springfield.

This year’s annual fundraiser, ‘An Evening of Broadway and Laughter,’ drew over 300 attendees for cocktails and dinner, followed by a performance by the vivacious and talented singer and comedian Robin Roth. Net proceeds from the event will go to support the various residential and health care programs of JGS.

Event Sponsors for the 94th Annual Donor Event were Paul and Charlotte Bloom and Elliot and Anne Bloom, The Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the Julian J. Leavitt Family, Meyers Brothers Kalicka, P.C., SEI Investments and Kittredge Equipment.
