JF&CS Journey to Safety’s “Love Should be Safe” fundraiser was a great success! Because of your generous donations, we raised close to $190,000. Whether you were a sponsor or guest, thank you for your support and for saying no to domestic abuse.
Almost 200 guests enjoyed the warm ambiance and elegance of Pine Brook Country Club. Jorge Quiroga, an award winning television journalist and a dear friend of Julie Riven Jaye, was a charming master of ceremonies, and his admiration for Julie as a leader to end domestic abuse was palpable and heartwarming.
As she stepped down from her position as Chair of the Journey to Safety Advisory Committee, we honored Julie Riven Jaye with the 2012 Leadership Award, a sculpture created by artist Nancy Schön, which she humbly accepted. Julie wowed everyone when she recounted the courageous steps to create a culturally sensitive domestic abuse program in the Jewish community – moving us all and bringing many to tears.
