10th Annual Kolot Luncheon was a Success

January 17th, 2017 - jfsbroward

You helped break the silence!

Thank you for celebrating our 10th Anniversary Kolot Luncheon presented by Verizon on Sunday, January 8th and helping to give a voice to survivors of domestic abuse.

Thanks to your support, Goodman Jewish Family Services will continue to provide assistance to our clients who are trying to rebuild their lives after experiencing domestic abuse.

During the luncheon you heard from our inspirational local survivor, who said “I did not know what I would have done without Goodman Jewish Family Services.” We hope you found her presentation inspirational.  Because of the support she received from JFS, she is now in a safe environment and in a loving and supportive relationship with a man who lets her be herself, and lives a life free from violence.

We hope you found the presentation made by Senator Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids, inspiring and informative and the video presentation by author Leslie Morgan Steiner compelling and empowering.

We are proud to share that we grossed more than $90K!! This means we will be able to continue to provide counseling, emergency financial assistance, case management, food, clothing and more to our clients.

We would like to thank all of you who sponsored our luncheon, sponsored a table, donated an item for our raffle or silent auction, and who made a financial contribution at the event. If you did not do so on Sunday and would like to support our domestic abuse program now, please click here:

A big round of applause to our co-chairs Ibby Schulman and Margie Albert and their amazing committee for planning such a wonderful afternoon. Mazel Tov to longtime Kolot supporter Randee Lefkow for being recognized for her dedication to “breaking the silence.”

As the saying goes, it takes a village. Know that you are an integral part of our village.

On behalf of everyone at Goodman Jewish Family Services, thank you again for your commitment to improving lives in Broward County.
