Jewish Family Services of Greenwich holds annual benefit, If Not Now, When?

On March 6 Jewish Family Services of Greenwich hosted their annual  benefit, If Not Now, When? at the Tomes-Higgins House in Greenwich. Lala Addeo and Willow Oberweger co-chaired the event, which helped to raise funds to support the many programs and services JFS provides to the Greenwich community.

Nearly 90 supporters enjoyed an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and a silent auction.  Senator Richard Blumenthal joined the festivities and spoke of the good work JFS does in the community. Also addressing the group were two JFS clients who told of the positive impact the agency has had on their lives.

Sincere thanks go to our sponsors and silent auction donors:
