Several hundred supporters of Ruth Rales
Jewish Family Service (RRJFS) danced at its December 4th
“Rock N’ Roll is Here to Stay!” gala at the Woodfield
Country Club to support the agency. The event featured
Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge and The Tokens. The crowd enjoyed a
cocktail reception, filet mignon dinner and bid for
jewelry, vacation packages and an ornate music box
shaped like a piano, at auction. Proceeds benefited
RRJFS, a non-profit, non-sectarian social service
agency; which is the lead agency serving seniors in
south Palm Beach County.
“We were so thrilled to be honored at
this wonderful party. It’s been great to get everyone
out for the cause,” said Stanley Barry, who with his
wife Marilyn, was awarded engraved crystal globes to
thank them for their support of the agency. Linda and
Ivan Gefen were also honored for their support.
The gala was co-hosted by Isabel and
Arnold Friedman and Wendy and Wayne Legum. “Things are
different these days,” Arnold said. “It used to be after a gala we’d
here how it went by phone. Now we still get calls, plus
dozens of e-mails. The feedback has been very positive.
Everyone had a good time.”
Wendy Legum added, “All the effort was
worth it. RRJFS touches the lives of 35,000 people of
all faiths, many of them frail seniors.”
“This evening will help us raise funds to
make sure the agency can uphold its mission of serving
the most vulnerable individuals in our area,” said Dr.
Jaclynn Faffer, RRJFS CEO. “We are so grateful for our
leadership’s hard work on behalf of the most vulnerable
in our community.”
