Top 10 Reasons To Attend JFCS’s 25th Annual Benefit

Benefit ImageJewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis (JFCS) is holding its milestone 25th Annual Benefit on Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Hilton Minneapolis (1001 Marquette Ave S). As one of the biggest fundraising events in the Twin Cities, there are dozens of reasons to attend the Benefit, but here are 10 particularly good ones:

  1. The Benefit’s “40 and Under” Pre-Party will undoubtedly feature plenty of attractive young adults dressed to the nines — and you’ll get a FREE SIGNATURE COCKTAIL to boot.
  2. This is the most important reason, but we thought we’d kick off the list with the Pre-Party: Your ticket purchase goes toward helping 16,000 people of all backgrounds each year reach their full potential. Money raised through the Benefit provides critically needed services such as emergency financial assistance, job search guidance, mentors for youth, home visits that promote early childhood literacy, transportation for seniors and much more.
  3. You’ll get to enjoy the hilarious comedy of comedian/actor Elon Gold.
  4. Your $10 raffle ticket could win amazing prizes like a Macbook Pro computer, weekend getaway in New York City, 50-inch Samsung flatscreen Smart TV, 10k white gold round princess-cut diamond pendant and more!
  5. Not only do you get a free cocktail at the “40 and Under” Pre-Party, but you’ll also enjoy delicious desserts at the Cindi and Harold Goldfine Dessert Reception.
  6. That’s not all! There will also be a bottled liquor ring toss game at the Pre-Party. The prizes are far better than at your average carnival.
  7. All your friends will be there.
  8. It’s cheaper than your average Saturday night out and the money you spend strengthens the community.
  9. It gives you a reason to put on that suit or cocktail dress that’s taking up room in your closet.
  10. To recap: Free cocktail, helping the community, fun socializing and lots of laughter. So get your tickets! To come to the “40 and Under” Pre-Party, Elon Gold show, and dessert, you can get a $50 Friend ticket (general seating) or $125 Patron ticket (choice seating). To enjoy all that with an elegant dinner, you can get a Benefactor “40 and Under” ticket for the discounted price of $150.
