The Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center is Hosting the Annual JCC Fund Raising Event KidShare 2014 on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 6:00 PM in the Pfister Hotel -- Co-chaired by Barb & Bill Bodner, Debbie & Joe Kasle, and Jody & David Margolis.
Each May, taste buds across Southeastern Wisconsin come alive as the JCC celebrates KidShare, a fundraising event. The area’s finest restaurants, chefs, bakers, and caterers come together at the Pfister Hotel to raise scholarship funds for the JCC’s many educational and camp programs. With over 40 delicious food stations, live and silent auctions, and a fantastic crowd from across the region – KidShare is one of the most anticipated charity events on the Milwaukee social calendar.
Our mission at the JCC ensures that no one shall be denied any of the JCC’s vibrant social services because they lack funds. Since its inception, KidShare has raised well over a million dollars to help us meet this commitment. Proceeds from KidShare, the direct result of support from our vendors, donors, sponsors, and guests ensures that:
- Families can participate in our Gan Ami early childhood activities
- Our school transportation system is available for our after-school Kids Center program
- Our summer Shiluv program at the Albert & Ann Deshur JCC Rainbow Day Camp continues to succeed and grow
- S.T.A.R.S., our year-round special needs program, is available to families across the region
KidShare is the preeminent culinary event of the year. It brings together dozens of committee volunteers, chairs and co-chairs, with scores of the area’s leading chefs and catering people, all of whom contribute their time and talents to make this a successful event.
