12th Annual JFS Cocktail Party Raises $65,000
More than 175 guests attended the 12th Annual JFS Cocktail Party on March 2. The event, held at Bourre in Atlantic City, raised $65,000 for vital agency services for children and families.
Co-chairs Farah & Michael Burns, Claudia & Eric Goldberg, and Antoinette & Eric Wood, along with the entire committee, organized the Mardi Gras-inspired evening where guests were entertained by the jazz sounds of the Ocean Avenue Stompers while enjoying cocktails and conversation, authentic NOLA food, and access to exclusive live auction experiences – including a behind-the-scenes look at HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” and a trip for two to next year’s Mardi Gras celebration.
Attendees were awarded prizes for Best Mask, Best Dressed, and Most Beads, while one lucky guest left with a stunning Ippolita Senso 18k yellow gold station necklace, courtesy of Bernie Robbins Jewelers and valued at $3,295.
