Guests enjoyed an evening of buckets and baskets at the ‘It’s Game Time!’ fundraiser hosted by Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties on March 26. The basketball themed event, which was held at The Wave Nightclub & Lounge in the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, raised $33,000 to support JFS programs and services.

“After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we were thrilled to be able to host the ‘It’s Game Time!’ event and raise funds to support the agency. Held during the NCAA Men’s Tournament, attendees showed their spirit by wearing their favorite collegiate team jersey while watching games on the large screen televisions,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.
