Members of the Congregation Beth Israel (CBI) Brotherhood presented a check to GRACE for $4,800 representing the proceeds from their “At the Derby” Casino Night.
The event held in mid-January was the “lucky seventh” edition of the fantastic event. This year, the Brotherhood selected the theme of the Kentucky Derby “Run for the Roses” experience, and the night was a pure “thoroughbred”.
Always the most popular attraction of the event, the catering by Rena Frost and Mac’s on Main Steakhouse was recognized for supporting the casino night event since its inception.
Casino night chairman Sam Felberbaum was first in acknowledging Rena, those who served on the casino planning committee, and all the volunteers for another very successful event.
“These talented and dedicated men and women brought this evening to life,” said Mr. Felberbaum. “They have committed many hours of service and detailed planning to make sure this was a great evening.”
Mr. Felberbaum also credited the many sponsors and in-kind donors that gave funds, prizes, and auctions items to make the night truly meaningful for the Jewish Family Services and Stepping Stones—the other two agencies, along with GRACE, who were beneficiaries of the event.
Our thanks to Mr. Felberbaum, and all the members of the casino planning committee, Meredith Arms, CBI President, Rabbi Charlie-Cytron Walker, and all who made “At the Derby” such a smashing success!
The Brotherhood has set Saturday, January 9, 2021 for their 8th annual casino night. The theme is rumored to be “Back to the ‘80s!”. It is certain the casino planning committee is already at work finding a way to top this year’s “At the Derby”.
