special fundraising events
JCC Manhattan hosts special events each year to help us reach our fundraising goals and guarantee that our programs are available to everyone in our community. The JCC provides approximately half a million dollars in financial assistance to children, students, families, seniors, and others in our community who would otherwise be unable to participate in our programs. By supporting our annual fundraising events, you are helping the JCC continue to make this possible.
We are grateful for the support of businesses and corporations who have supported our special events. If you are a business owner or corporate representative interested in learning more about event sponsorship opportunities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Casino Night brings together more than 100 people each year for a fun night of food, drinks, great prizes, and, of course, poker! Blackjack and roulette tables are available for those who want to participate but are not poker players.
White Hot Saturday Night
White Hot features amazing live and silent auctions, music, entertainment, food, and drinks. This fundraising event supports the critical programs and services the JCC offers to the community throughout the year.
In 2017, our co-chairs were Miriam and Aaron Cohen, Jamie and Jesse Eisen, and Erica and Michael Held. The JCC Award for Staff Excellence was presented to Melissa Donovan Chief Operating Officer, Meyerson Center for Health + Wellness and Membership.
