In a year that has been filled with challenges with the ongoing pandemic, the Friendship Circle in Livingston has remained committed to providing engaging programming, activities, and support to children, teens, and young adults with special needs and their families.
It has done so, in large part, thanks to the generosity of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, which has provided significant financial support to ensure that these activities have continued.
In recognition of this partnership, Friendship Circle will honor the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ at the upcoming Virtual Cocktail Night on Monday, March 8, starting at 7 p.m.
“We are blessed to live and work in a community which sees the value of each person,” Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum, Friendship Circle’s CEO, said. “The Federation has shown that they are deeply committed to inclusion of people with special needs and their families. During this time of crisis they have stepped up to make sure that no one is forgotten.”
Harrison Plavin of Short Hills, Maida and Dr. David Richlin of Livingston, MayaBea Schechner of Short Hills, and Laura and Dr. Vladimir Shur and family of Short Hills also will be honored at the online celebration.
This year’s festivities will include a performance by Piff the Magic Dragon, who has been featured on the “America’s Got Talent.”
Funds raised for the evening will help continue covid-19 relief programs and services. Various levels of sponsorship are available. Learn more and register at fcnj.com/cocktailnight.
