Granting Wishes Reception
March 5, 2012


$1B Gilt Groupe Founder to Headline as Jewish Women’s Foundation Announces Grant Awards

2012 Allocations Total $107,000+; Since 2003,
JWF Has Granted Nearly $440,000

The cutting-edge, hands-on philanthropists of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of South Palm Beach County (JWF) invite women of all ages to join them in celebrating their more than $107,000 in 2012 program awards, and to hear from Entrepreneur of the Year, a “Top 10 Most Powerful Mom,” Gilt Groupe Co-founder and Chief Merchandising Officer, and fashion industry powerhouse Alexandra Wilkis Wilson (bio below). This year’s Granting Wishes Reception will be held at 5:00 pm on March 5, 2012, at the elegant Boca Rio Country Club, 22041 Boca Rio Road, Boca Raton.

“As cutting edge philanthropists committed to helping women and girls break through barriers, we’re very excited to offer the community a powerful young speaker who has been on the cutting edge of fashion and online entrepreneurship, and who has dedicated herself to mentorship and philanthropy,” said Judith Temple, Chair of the event. “Alexandra will share her insights on how to develop a dream idea into a successful, thriving business. Only three and a half years old, Gilt Groupe was valued at $1 billion last spring. She’ll also let us inside to learn about the hand-selected items that adorn the fabulously famous luxury web site .

Local businesses will also have a prime opportunity to connect first-hand with Gilt Groupe and their regional company Gilt City – Miami, which works with an extremely selective, high-profile luxury vendors list of travel services, restaurants, shops, salons and far more. All attendees will have the chance to win a gift certificate for Gilt City – Miami and enjoy some give-away goodies. They’ll also have the opportunity to pre-purchase pre-released copies of Alexandra’s book, By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt Groupe and Changed the Way Millions Shop; which includes an autographed galley copy.

“We’re also delighted to be announcing JWF’s new 2012 grant recipients, and to demonstrate how our combined dollars, careful research and shared funding decisions will be helping so many in the coming year,” said JWF Co-chair Mara Reuben. “JWF’s hands-on, independent philanthropists, called Trustees, serve as equal partners in selecting and supporting programs that address their most passionate concerns in our own community and overseas. It’s remarkably satisfying to pool our resources, decide together how to direct them and see the impact.”

“For 2012, we have allocated $107,250 to seven worthy initiatives in South Palm Beach County and Israel, in the areas of abuse prevention, educational opportunities, and health and welfare,” said JWF Co-chair Ann Kelman. “Founded by Roxane Frechie Lipton in 2003, the local JWF has so far granted nearly $440,000 to organizations that work to improve the lives of Jewish women
and girls.”

“This year, for the first time, we have joined in a collaborative grant with sixteen other foundations, each contributing $10,000 over two years,” continued Kelman. “In addition to allocating a total award of $170,000 to a vital project, this grant making initiative has brought together JWFs from across the country to share research, experiences, best practices and fundraising ideas in a true
 ‘think tank.’”

The Granting Wishes event couvert is $60, which includes an abundant array of hors d’oeuvres, stations, desserts, wine and soft drinks. Dietary laws will be observed. To register, for more information about the event or to learn about becoming a JWF trustee, contact 561-852-3188 or .

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of South Palm Beach County is generously sponsored by Oppenheimer and Fine Things "Accents - Home Decor – Gifts." Life Publications - Parkland/Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Boca Delray - is the event’s Magazine Sponsor.

The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County serves the
Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach areas, raising and allocating millions of dollars each year to meet vital needs locally, in Israel and more than 70 countries worldwide.

The Jewish Women’s Foundation is an initiative of the Federation’s Jewish Community Foundation.
