sholom women gala In Perfect harmony

What a spectacular night!  Sholom Women's In Perfect Harmony event was fabulous from beginning to end.  The beautifully set tables, the buffet, the wine and bubbly, and the exquisite desserts were beyond anything we could have imagined.  The atmosphere of the entire evening was happy and festive. 

Cantor Yonah Kliger and Emily Jasinsky's talent and showmanship shone brightly like the "stars" that they are.  Their voices reached over so many singing styles and it was such a pleasure having them entertain us.  The musicians, Bob Remstein on piano, Michael Hurwitz on drums, and Marc Levine on bass enhanced the singing beautifully.  In Perfect Harmony indeed!

Many hands came together to create the evening: Thank you to our Gala Co-chairs Susan Aptekar and Mary Ann Waterman and the Gala Team members Erika Abbott, Doris Abouav, Shari Carruthers, Katie Christie, Linda Citron, Michele Katz, Diane Koss, Arline Radine and Nancy Sturm, along with Margie Isaak, Eileen Marchasin and Michelle Postal who helped transform the social hall into such an elegant space.  Thank you to our Clergy, PTS Senior Staff, Office Staff and Custodial Staff, and Board of Trustees for all their support and encouragement.  Thank you to the generosity of our Underwriters:  Kathleen & Dan Shugar for the printing and postage of our lovely invitations, Linda & Warren Citron for the entertainment, Erika & Steve Abbott and Diane & Richard Koss for the beverages, and the League of Extraordinary Mensches, Cindy Wong, Alison & Stanley Greenspan, Michele & Jeffrey Katz and Mary Ann Waterman.  And to Kim Oliff for designing our "perfect" logo and tagline.  Thank you to our Bartenders, Steve Abbott and Richard Koss, raffle prize donations from Nancy & Fred Sturm, Arline & Gary Radine, Diane Koss and Shari Carruthers, and Katie Christie and her baking team for creating the decadent dessert table.  It truly takes a village!

But the biggest THANK YOU is to YOU!  Our guests!  It was wonderful to see so many of your smiling faces joining us for our evening.  What a success! Your generosity will go along ways in supporting our events, programs, youth and many other activities in our community!

Yours in friendship,  Your Sholom Women Gala Team and Leadership Council
