JCFS Annual Benefit- A Striking Event: Under the Stars

A Striking Event, Under the Stars, the annual summer celebration of Jewish Child & Family Services and its generous supporters, took place on June 24 at Ravinia Festival. Whether you attended or joined us in spirit, THANK YOU for making the day’s event an outstanding success!

We introduced so many new people to our work and strengthened the connections for those we already know. We raised more than $280,000 to support vital programs and services for more than 30,000 children, adults and families of all backgrounds who face challenges with life transitions, mental health or basic human need.

We were excited to have Illinois First Lady Diana Rauner join us for Under the Star as we presented David Golder with the Irving B. Harris Leadership Award for his advocacy and service to the community.

You – our donors and volunteers – make JCFS possible and for that you have our most heartfelt thanks and appreciation!
