There are two things in life we can all agree are fun, memorable and meaningful. A party to celebrate, whether you host or attend one, and on a larger scale, having a purpose in life, something we all strive for. When you put those two things together it can only be an amazing experience. Well, that’s exactly what we have done. We are excited to introduce, “Party with a Purpose,” the new flagship women’s event for the Jewish Federation of Ottawa. This event, which replaces Federation’s Choices, promises a fresh platform and innovative concept, one we are sure will leave attendees feeling inspired, connected, accepted, fulfilled, and wanting to return for more.
What is Party with a Purpose? In a nutshell, it is a two-hour cocktail, hors d’oeuvre and dessert reception, focused on friend-raising and fund-raising. This women’s-only event is about schmoozing and connecting with both new and old friends, which is always a party. And it’s also about finding a connection for purposeful, targeted community fundraising. We are hopeful this new concept will help you in finding your “purpose” for your community. Three Jewish community programs will make a pitch – a short presentation showcasing their work and a specific need that those in attendance can connect with and directly support. All participants will then have an opportunity to make an immediate donation to their choice of the presented programs. [Read more…]
