The Weinstein JCC’s inaugural Center Plate fundraiser was a resounding success on Thursday, February 21! The sold-out event brought together a diverse group of individuals from members to corporate partners, community leaders and newcomers to raise essential funds to ensure that the Weinstein JCC’s enriching programs and services remain accessible and open to all.
The innovative event featured a four-course gourmet meal inspired by Michael W. Twitty’s life and experiences as described in his James Beard Award-winning book, The Cooking Gene, and interactive readings throughout the evening. Guests also had the opportunity to hear from Michael himself as he shared some personal anecdotes that have shaped the trajectory of his unique career and cuisine. Community spirit was in the air as the event was capped off with a record-breaking tzedakah appeal, which will enable the Weinstein JCC to continue to provide financial assistance to those in need.
Thank you to the committee members, sponsors, volunteers and supporters who helped make the event a success! We hope to see everyone again next year!
