30th Annual JFS House Tour Raises $45,000

Posted on August 16, 2017

Despite the rainy day, those who attended the 30th Annual JFS House Tour on August 7, 2017 enjoyed seeing some of Ventnor, Margate and Longport’s most breathtaking and stunning homes. From new construction with spectacular views to a home built in 1909, the House Tour offered attendees an exclusive look inside seven Downbeach homes.

The annual event raised $45,000 for Village by the Shore, which provides a variety of concierge, volunteer and professional services and socialization for adults (50+) in our community.

Organized by co-chairs Fran Gelman, Pam Sinderbrand and Mitch Tannehill, the 2017 House Tour was a great event, with generous sponsors and advertisers such as Steve & Cookie’s By the Bay, OceanFirst Bank and many more. Attendees, once again, received a complimentary lunch sponsored by Oasis Property Group in their stunning new home on Vendome Avenue in Margate. Trade sponsors from Colmar Kitchen and Bath, TJC Architects, Candice Adler Designs and Silver Bear Contracting offered attendees creative insight, design concepts, and information about the homes.

To celebrate the 30th Annual tour, the event also featured an upgraded, luxurious luncheon called Pearl of the Sea. Generously sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, the Jewish Federation of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Kellman Brown Academy and Mark Arbeit & Co. Real Estate, more than 40 guests attended this special invitation event. Pearl of the Sea offered a private tour of an exquisite crown jewel home in Margate, an elegant lunch catered by Starr Group, signature cocktail, and a VIP pass to the House Tour.

Five lucky winners took home fabulous raffle prizes including 18 karat white gold and diamond earrings from Roberts Fine Jewelers, a 2-night stay with $300 food credit at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, a 2-night stay and $300 food credit at Caesars Atlantic City, a JCC 2018 Summer Membership and a $100 Downbeach Express gift certificate.

The House Tour committee is already searching for homes to place on next year’s tour, scheduled for August 6, 2018. If you would like to find out more information about JFS or ways to get involved, call 609-822-1108 or visit www.jfsatlantic.org.
