Event a Success for the Jewish Federation
Once again the Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania sponsored a successful charity event for Chanukah. This year’s theme was a maniCURE for Breast Cancer support. Hosted at Elan Gardens Assisted Living facility in Clarks Summit, the event brought in women of all generations looking to have fun while supporting Sharsheret (The Chain) a national Jewish not-for-profit organization which helps women facing the emotional and psychological challenges of breast and other women’s cancers.
Both the Scranton Times-Tribune and WBRE-TV came to report and photograph the afternoon to the surprise and pleasure of the close to 50 participants. Outright donations and manicures raised over $500.
Many thanks to Jill Linder and Laney Ufberg for chairing the event as well as to Ilise Rubinow, executive director of Elan Gardens and Eta Richman for their roles in making this event a success. Our appreciation to the fine students of Jolie Beauty Academy of Wilkes-Barre and OPI polishes for their contributions to our charitable cause.
