Governer Charlie Baker and Ellie SvensonOn Thursday night, more than 425 friends of JF&CS attended the 2017 Benefit at the Castle at Park Plaza for a memorable evening. Thanks to your support, JF&CS raised more than $750,000 as we celebrated the Power of Family and honored Ellie Svenson for her endless devotion, commitment, and contribution to the agency.

JF&CS is extremely grateful to event co-chairs Alison Wachtler Braunstein & Barry Braunstein and Jamie Grossman & Bob Kinder as well as the Benefit event committee for all their hard work. We would also like to thank Governor Charlie Baker and his wife, Lauren, for sharing such inspiring words of support for our agency.

Thank you for helping us make an impact.
