25th Choices is next week at COS
January 4, 2019
Choices, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando’s largest annual women’s philanthropy event, is less than a week away, but tickets are still available for Thursday’s event at Congregation Ohev Shalom in Maitland.
The Presenting Sponsor for Choices 2019—the 25th year for the event—is Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies.
Since 1994, Choices has been a showcase for women’s philanthropy in the Central Florida Jewish community. It’s a gala event where women gather to celebrate, socialize and inspire, all in support of the Federation. The theme this year is Celebrating Women’s Empowerment.
The evening kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with registration and a cocktail hour, featuring specialty hors d’oeuvres and drinks by Arthur’s. An elegant seated dinner follows at 7:15 p.m., with fish, vegetarian and Glatt Kosher choices.
After dinner, some of the women who took part in this year’s Momentum trip to Israel, which was made possible locally by the Federation and JOIN Orlando, will share some of the highlights of their journey.
The evening will be capped off with a talk by one of the most recognizable voices in radio, Lynn Dictor, better known as her on-air persona, “Moira.” Dictor been part of the Central Florida radio landscape for 35 years on such shows as “The Philips Phile” on WTKS 104.1 and her own “Moira’s Mixed Company” on NewsRadio 93.1 WFLA.
Choices is made possible in part by the generosity of event sponsors, including this year’s Ruby Sponsors, Krise Wealth Management and Florida Cancer Specialists.
