More than 300 supporters recently gathered to celebrate 30 years of vital human services that continue to make a crucial difference for residents of all ages throughout South Palm Beach County.  In sparkling elegance at St. Andrews Country Club, they rejoiced, remembered and recommitted at the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service (RRJFS) Anniversary Gala.

“We could not be more proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary of responding to critical community needs,” said Arnold Friedman, RRJFS Financial Resource Development Chair. “Your compassion and generosity have already given us a remarkable history, taking us from a store front with one part-time social worker, in 1979, to our non-denominational multi-service agency that helps 35,000 clients each year.”

Friedman co-chaired the gala with his wife Isabel, Judi and Craig Donoff, and Wendy and Wayne Legum. Their vibrant creativity and meticulous planning were evident throughout the evening, and in the great success of the event’s fundraising activities.
 

Following a sumptuous cocktail reception and silent auction, the guests entered an exquisite wonderland of lights and music for dinner, dancing, and a live auction of luxurious jewelry and travel. Yet, continuing to address the rising essential needs of local residents was clearly at the heart of the evening.

 “RRJFS provides a safety net for our neighbors who need it most - frail seniors, the hungry, Holocaust survivors, families in crisis – and an unprecedented number of people are requesting assistance with daily needs and counseling,” said Larry Blair, RRJFS Chair. “We take inspiration from champions like Ron and Meryl Gallatin, and others whose generosity has increased as times have gotten more difficult for all of us.”

At the gala, the Gallatins received the inaugural Ruth and Norman Rales Humanitarian of the Year Award. Designed to honor “commitment to RRJFS, community involvement, philanthropic spirit, excellent leadership and unique ability to motivate and inspire others by example,” the award was presented by William S. Bernstein, President & CEO of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, of which RRJFS is a founding beneficiary agency. Bernstein lauded the Gallatins for their longstanding leadership in numerous local, New York and national charitable efforts. (additional information about the Gallatins below)

“We are humbled to be the first recipients of an award named after the couple that had the vision to establish the most important social services agency in our community,” said Ron.

The Gala’s generous sponsors included: Marilyn and Stanley Barry, Isabel and Arnold Friedman, Meryl and Ron Gallatin, Phyllis and Gerry Golden, Anne and Norman Jacobson, Nancy and Marvin Schiller, C & J Viner Family Foundation, Shirley and Bart Weisman.
