“A Night of Hope, a Night with Heart” was a successful and beautiful evening enjoyed by nearly 200 people who came out to Sentinel hotel to celebrate and support JFCS, our work in the community and the clients we serve.

The featured speaker, a client, moved the guests with her authentic story and her art; the Portland Cello Project’s tunes lent elegance to the Governor Ballroom; and Flash PhotoBooth added whimsy.

JFCS sincerely thanks its generous community – our wonderful sponsors, long-term donors and those new to Portland’s only Jewish social-services organization – for getting us closer to our fundraising goal! Thank you!

Thank you!
