Women’s Philanthropy Spring Event to go virtual

By Stephanie Smartschan
JFLV Director of Community Development & Operations
Forgo the heels, grab a beverage and join Women’s Philanthropy for a very special virtual Spring Event on Thursday, May 7. Lisa Friedman Clark will share her story of “dancing between the raindrops” via Zoom beginning at 7 p.m.
While the women’s annual Spring Event is typically geared toward women who pledge $365 or more to the Federation’s campaign, this year, it will be open to everyone.

“The most important thing right now, as we are all hunkered down at home, is to find a way to come together,” co-chairs Chelsea Karp and Debi Wiener said in a statement. “On behalf of the $365 Division, we really wanted to make this event accessible to all.”
While Friedman Clark was scheduled as this year’s speaker prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, her story becomes all the more poignant now.
She likes to call herself the "luckiest unlucky" person she knows. Everything in her life has been big -- both physically and experientially. At 6"1 with bright red hair, she clearly stands out in a crowd.
On May 7, she will share her story of embracing optimism in difficult times and how the Federation system has played a critical role in every facet of her journey. She will be joined by her sons who have created a business with charity at its core.
There is no cost to attend the program,. Please e-mail Wendy Edwards at wendy@jflv.org or REGISTER NOW and receive the Zoom link.
