WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (March 25, 2014) --- More than 500 guests attended Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County’s inaugural Main Event on March 18, 2014.  Event attendees contribute more than $2.5 million in donations to Federation’s Annual Campaign. The new flagship event, held at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, was chaired by Ted and Roslyn Leopold with honorary chairs, Ewa and Dan Abraham, Cynthia Friedman, Lori and Bruce Gendelman and Elaine and Jerry Schuster. Stacey and Steve Ellison, Susan and Chick Glabman, Elizabeth and Ben Gordon, Miki and Michael Leibowitz, and Lisa and David Lickstein served as vice chairs.

Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, was the featured speaker for the Main Event.

 “There is great synergy between Federation’s work and Chelsea Clinton’s message,” said Federation President & CEO, David Phillips.  “Chelsea spoke about engaging the younger generation in the fight against hunger, poverty and disease.  Federation is focused on developing and empowering the next generation of community leaders who recognize our collective responsibility to help make the world a better place.”

It was inspiring to hear from a young national leader about how each of us can make a real impact on our local and global community,” said Ted Leopold, Q&A moderator and Main Event chair along with his wife, Roslyn Leopold.

The Federation’s Annual Campaign raises funds to enrich Jewish life, care for vulnerable populations, and build global Jewish community.Funding from the Annual Campaign is allocated to dozens of local, national and international partner agencies that deliver vital programs and services in the community, in Israel and in 70 countries around the world.

“Our aim is to reach and help as many people as possible who rely on Federation and our partner agencies for vital services and programs,” said Board Chair, Arthur Loring.  “We are grateful for the many generous individuals who demonstrate the same steadfast passion as Chelsea Clinton. It’s the cumulative effort that makes positive, lasting change for those around us who need it most.

In addition to the Annual Campaign Federation is currently raising funds for Tomorrow Today: A Community Partnership Project, a capital campaign led by a multi-generational group of Jewish community leaders who have made the bold move to relocate and renovate the locations of the Federation and its partner agencies. With more than $17 million raised to date, the campaign will help ensure that Federation and its partner agencies are positioned to serve the future educational, recreational and social service needs of the Jewish community.  

Federation plans to relocate to a convenient, central location that will accommodate its growing scope of services from Boynton Beach to Martin County.  The Mandel JCC opened its new location in Palm Beach Gardens in August 2013.  Meyer Academy will join the JCC at the same Hood Road location with a new, modern school that opens in August 2014.
