More than 175 guests attended the 12th Annual JFS Cocktail Party on Saturday, March 2, 2019. The event, held at Bourre in Atlantic City, raised $65,000 for vital agency services for children and families.

Co-chairs Farah & Michael Burns, Claudia & Eric Goldberg, and Antoinette & Eric Wood, along with the entire committee, organized the Mardi Gras-inspired evening where guests were entertained by the jazz sounds of the Ocean Avenue Stompers while enjoying cocktails and conversation, authentic NOLA food, and access to exclusive live auction experiences.

Attendees were awarded prizes for Best Mask, Best Dressed, and Most Beads, while one lucky guest left with a stunning Ippolita Senso 18k yellow gold station necklace, courtesy of Bernie Robbins Jewelers.

With the charitable support of sponsors Kensington Design Services, Fox Rothschild, Atlantic City Linen Supply, and many others, JFS continues to increase awareness in the community about the critical work the agency does to help those in need.
