Decked out in patriotic colors, guests at the “Never Underestimate the Power of a Woman!” National Council of Jewish Women Gala enjoyed an evening of entertainment, eating well and supporting the GNO Section’s efforts in service and advocacy.
Rosie the Riveter signs decorated the WWII Museum and the Stage Door Canteen, with photo opportunities where guests could insert their own face into a cutout of Rosie. Red, white and blue streamers with small flags and themes decorated tables throughout.
Co-Chairs were Susan Kierr, Alysse Fuchs and Ina Davis. Susan and Alysse welcomed the crowd that filled the room to capacity and highlighted the goals of NCJW with different guests rising with flags announcing goals and themes. Margie Bissinger led the blessing.
The Stage Door Canteen catered dinner, through which Spencer Racca crooned Frank Sinatra. Afterwards, the Victory Belles and the Victory Trio entertained a delighted crowd.
Barbara Greenberg, Development Vice President, concluded the evening thanking the chairs and attendees for attending, noting that without their support, NCJW couldn’t help others in the community. She also expressed gratitude to the Oscar Tolmas Trust (which already supports NCJW Way Program) and Isaacson/Bissinger families for their support of the Isaacson Scholarship Program.
NCJW provided party favors in NCJW colors of green or blue with instructions to wear when volunteering.
