Posted on August 30, 2017
The 4th Annual JFS Card Party, held on August 23, 2017 at Harbor Pines Golf Club raised $12,000 for Village by the Shore. A sold-out room of more than 100 attendees gathered for an afternoon of fun games such as Bridge, Canasta and Mah Jong, as well as vendors, food and prizes. This was the most successful Village by the Shore Card Party to-date.
With many auction baskets and door prizes, several individuals went home with fantastic items such as restaurant and retail gift cards, spa gift certificates, tickets to local attractions, and more. The Card Party also featured a silent auction, with attendees bidding on items such as wine and liquor baskets, getaways to Atlantic City casino hotels, a Rosh Hashanah Dinner for 10 and more.
Retail vendors Hope Jewels, LuLaRoe with Andrea Pugliese, Sabai Soap Company, Le Fashion Cottage, and Usborne Books and More showcased their fabulous items. A representative from Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, Inc. was on site to provide information about their services. Hors d'oeuvres, a buffet lunch and wonderful door prizes added to the activities and overall fun of the day.
With the generous support of sponsors, the Gurwicz Family, Right at Home, Harrison Family Foundation, Journey Hospice, Angelic Hospice, Heartland Hospice Care, Visiting Angels, Donna & Melvyn Gorsen and Miriam & Larry Hirsch, the Card Party raised even more vital funds for Village by the Shore, a program that provides a variety of concierge, volunteer and professional services and socialization for adults (50+) in our community.
