Star Pomegranate Celebration


Julie Orringer


Star Pomegranate Celebration
with the invisible bridge author julie Orringer

to Help “Bridge the Gap” for those in Need

An exceptional evening of celebration is in store on March 15th, 2012 for women who help “bridge the gap” for those in need by contributing at the Pomegranate and Star levels to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County annual campaign. Julie Orringer, the award-winning author of the novel, The Invisible Bridge, will headline the evening at Woodfield Country Club,
3650 Club Place, Boca Raton.

At 7:00 pm, women of all ages from throughout the community will share great company, champagne, desserts, coffee and a keynote from the acclaimed author. Chaired by Liz Goldstein and Shirley Solomon, the event is open to Star contributors of individual women’s gifts of $365 or higher to the Federation’s annual campaign. The couvert is $36 and dietary laws will be observed.

Prior to the Star Celebration, at 6:00 pm Orringer will join a private wine and hors d’oeuvres reception for Pomegranate donors, whose individual 2012 campaign gifts range from 1,800 to $4,999. Rebecca Appelbaum, Women’s Philanthropy Vice Chair, Pomegranate and reception Chairs Joan Hauser and Randi Winter have planned a luxurious event to celebrate the Pomegranates’ contributions.
The combined couvert for this reception and the
Star Pomegranate Celebration is $54.

“It’s so exciting and rewarding to bring together women from all elements of our Jewish community and at different giving levels, whose awareness and commitment shape our sisterhood of caring,” said Kathy Green, the Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy Vice Chair, Community Development. “We’re thrilled to provide this opportunity for them to hear from an author whose work is so popular with such a wide variety of women.”

Orringer’s novel, The Invisible Bridge is a grand love story set against the backdrop of Budapest and Paris, chronicling one family’s struggle against the forces that threaten to annihilate it. Orringer is also the author of How to Breathe Underwater, a short story collection. She is a 1996 graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she held a two-year Creative Writing Teaching Fellowship. She was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford from 1999-2001, and Stanford’s Marsh McCall Lecturer in Fiction from 2001-2003. (additional biographical information below)
