You are cordially invited to attend
JFS’ First Virtual Seize the Dream Gala!

Thursday May 7th, 6:30pm

Dear Friends,
While we will miss celebrating with you in person, this exciting video invitation, narrated by Emily Riemer, WCVB Anchor/Medical Reporter is just a taste of what is to come the evening of Thursday May 7th.
When you tune in, we will pay tribute to our amazing honorees Bob Fields and the team at CommCreative, retiring JFS CEO Emeritus Marc Jacobs, and recipients of the Max Michelson Humanitarian Award, Barbara and Samantha Shapiro – extraordinary individuals who lead lives of purpose, drive change and help people in need.
You will also hear compelling, sometimes heartbreaking stories that will bring tears to your eyes and highlight the important work of the agency – stories that will leave you feeling that, despite all the fear and uncertainty in the world today, there is love and care… and hope.
I hope you will log in – and that you will share this invitation widely with family and friends – and join us as we celebrate our incredible honorees and the amazing work of JFS.
I look forward to seeing you then,

Lino Covarrubias, CEO
