NCJW Austin Annual Chanukah Party
Date(s) - Thu, Dec 11, 2014
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
NCJW Austin will hold its Annual Chanukah Party on Thursday, December 11th at 7:30pm at the home of an NCJW member. The location of the event will be given when you RSVP. Networking time is from 7:30-8:00pm, and the program will start at 8:00pm. Appetizers, desserts, and drinks will be served, and you do not need to be an NCJW member to attend. Please RSVP by December 10th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our guest speaker will be Susy Hemphill, the President-Elect of Lilith Fund. Lilith Fund is a local non-profit organization that helps low-income Texans access abortion services they want and need, but are unable to afford. Susy lives in Austin and works as an urban planner addressing statewide affordable housing needs.
This year we are asking our Chanukah party guests to bring gift cards that will be distributed as holiday gifts to a number of important non-profit charities. Recipients will include Lilith Fund volunteers, Lifeworks clients, and any of our other partner organizations. Suggested gift cards include HEB, Randalls, Target, or Walmart in denominations of at least $20. These are suggested retailers and amounts, but any type of donations for these recipients will be appreciated.
This is one of our most fun and popular events every year and this year should be no different. It is open to non-NCJW members, but an RSVP is required.
