Citrus Club 'Happy Hour' unites support for Jewish Pavilion
June 23, 2017
Cocktails. Crowds. And a worthy cause! The Citrus Club Young Executive Board and the Citrus Club of Orlando brought all three together on Tuesday, June 6, hosting its monthly "United for a Purpose" event, benefitting The Jewish Pavilion.
Jewish Pavilion Marketing Director Pam Ruben commented, "We are grateful to The Citrus Club for putting on a 'happy hour with a heart,' and were thrilled to be the chosen charity of the month by its Young Executive Board. Special kudos to Carina Gerscovich, as well as the Gerscovich family, for championing the senior community."
Keynote speaker, Carina Gerscovich, Jewish Pavilion Friends Board Member and member of the Citrus Club's Young Executive Board, commented, "I have been volunteering with the Jewish Pavilion for the past year. You may wonder why a young person like myself is interested in the senior community. I fell in love with the Pavilion's mission to connect elder-care residents with community, with seniors of all faiths enjoying our programs." Gerscovich added, "My own grandmother (abuela) is 103-years-old, and lives in Argentina. It would be very comforting if we could rely on an agency like the Jewish Pavilion to provide her with festive holidays, friendly visits, and musical programs when we can't be there."
The Jewish Pavilion has been bringing community to the doorsteps of elder-care residents since 2001. Residents of all faiths enjoy the Pavilion's programs.
