Citrus Club hosts benefit for the Jewish Pavilion

Raise a toast to a good cause while enjoying spectacular views of downtown Orlando at the Citrus Club's April 16 happy hour honoring the Jewish Pavilion and its important work with senior citizens. A ticket purchase of only $15 to the Club's "United For A Purpose" event provides an evening of hors d'oeuvres and a drink, along with raffle prizes and networking. Proceeds from the event will be donated toward the Pavilion's mission, which serves to connect the elder-care population to the Jewish community through engaging educational programming and festive holiday celebrations.

This is the second year in a row for the Citrus Club to host one of its philanthropic happy hours benefitting the Jewish Pavilion. Typically, the Club only allows one event per organization. But because last year's Jewish Pavilion happy hour resulted in record attendance, the Club has invited the Pavilion back for a second year.

The relationship between the Citrus Club and the nonprofit is the result of hard work done by Carina Gerscovich, who serves on both the board of the Jewish Pavilion and on the Citrus Club's Young Executive Board.

"She single-handedly organized a fantastic fundraising event at the Citrus Club last year and did such a great job," said Nancy Ludin, CEO of the Jewish Pavilion, regarding Gerscovich. "We are so excited that she will chair 'United For A Purpose' again this year."

The Citrus Club is located at 255 South Orange Ave., Suite 1800; and the event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to make use of Orlando's SunRail system for transportation to the event, as it will make both rush-hour travel and downtown parking more manageable. The Citrus Club is located one block away from SunRail's Church Street stop. Members of the Jewish Pavilion's Friends Board will be hosting boarding groups at SunRail stops beginning in Lake Mary and running at consecutive stops to Winter Park to assist with any questions about this unique style of travel to the party.

Tickets are $15, and parking is $5 after 5 p.m. To purchase your tickets for this fun evening, visit https://jpav.ticketspice.com/2018-cocktails-for-a-cause.

The Jewish Pavilion has been bringing community to the doorsteps of elder-care residents since 2001. You can personally make a difference. Become a fan at Facebook.com/jewishpavilion. Make a donation or learn more by visiting JewishPavilion.org.
