Black Tie International:
Cherub Improv Fourth Annual Winter Gala
Cherub Improv President and Co-Founder Jonathan Evan Goldberg and Cherubs:
Cherub Improv President and Co-Founder Jonathan Evan Goldberg and Cherubs
NOVEMBER 11, 2014 
Jonathan Evan Goldberg, Esq., litigation and employment law Partner at Vandenberg & Feliu, LLP and President and Co-Founder of Cherub Improv, the world’s largest non-profit improv organization, orchestrated the celebration of over seven years of healing through laughter at its Fourth-Annual Winter Gala, November 11, 2014. Cherub Improv’s mission, with the support of over 200 volunteer “Cherubs”, is to provide free entertainment and education to children and adults in hospitals, retirement communities, veterans’ facilities, hospice programs, senior centers, teenage runaway/homeless shelters, cancer support groups and more.
This festive occasion also served as the official welcome to new Cherub Improv Board members, Cynthia Dillon and Shelly Savoca.  Ms. Dillon, whose career has been spent in the real estate industry and theater management arena, brings her knowledge of theatrical performance arts and keen acumen in marketing to the Board.  Shelly Savoca, National Sales Director, Transgenomic, Inc. for USA & Canada, has been a “Cherub” (as they are affectionately called) since 2010, and shares her expertise in sales and motivational techniques with Cherub Improv.  Among many other events, Ms. Savoca leads various public speaking workshops as part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Workplace Mentoring program.
Joining Mr. Goldberg to greet over 150 guests and to introduce Ms. Dillon and Ms. Savoca were Cherub Improv Co-Founder Joy Purver and Board Members Ben Wellington (author of the highly acclaimed I Quant NYC blog and PhD at Two Sigma Investments), Julie Galdieri (actress in You’ve Got Mail and Ten Souls Rising), Ed Goldberg (President of eHigherEducation), Carol Heller (ofGreen City Force), and Pat Carroll (CEO of Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey) as well as award-winning author Karynne Summars.
Guests were treated to a mini-Improv show featuring several of the organizations leaders, as well as a special performance provided by Mr. Goldberg and two of the residents of Kittay House of the Jewish Home and Healthcare for whom Cherub Improv has been providing events for over 5 years.  Mr. Goldberg (44 years old), Ms. Edna Nelkin (94 years old), and Ms. Rozanne Zweig (85 years old), caused fits of laughter as they performed an improv scene as three sisters in Antarctica complaining of the lack of good men, and good penguins, on the barren and chilly continent. 
The Cherub Improv Gala raised funds to help the “Cherubs” travel throughout the greater New York City area to spread their cheer. For more information about Cherub Improv, please visit
