The Barshop JCC’s annual fall fundraiser, The Main Event, will take place Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. at the JCC. Co-chaired by Jen Eichelbaum and Alan Ross, the event theme is Guardians of Our Galaxy honoring Rick Byrd, Marsha Penner, and Allan Smith for their collective and unwavering support of the JCC and the Jewish and general communities.
“In addition to acknowledging these three dedicated individuals, our goals for the evening are to bring the community together to engage with one another in addition to generating funds that directly benefit Early Childhood, Children & Youth, Senior Services, and Special Projects through the Walter and Reba Viner Charitable Fund,” said Lauren Ross, JCC Vice President/COO.
The online auction is now open at www.jccsanantonio.org/mainevent. Items are available for bidding with more being continuously added leading up to the event. Bidders are required to register with a credit card to bid and purchase items. The auction will close the evening of the event.“This year, the need for support is even more acute than at any time in recent history,” said Saul Levenshus, JCC President/CEO. “With United Ways’ recent decision to cut 100% of the funding that supported many of the same JCC services listed above, our community’s support of The Main Event is even more vital than ever.”
Food and drink purveyors include Clementine, Fork and Garden Catering, H-E-B, Linda Wolfe Catering, and Myron’s Prime Steakhouse. All food will be prepared under Kosher supervision.
Sponsorships start at $150, and individual tickets are $50. Visit www.jccsanantonio.org/mainevent to purchase tickets, for more information and updates or call (210) 302-6820.
