On a gorgeous, crisp, fall Sunday morning, supporters of Boulder’s Menorah cultural organization gathered at Rembrandt Yard downtown to honor Barbara and Tom Trager and celebrate its recent accomplishments.
The brunch, following a New Orleans Jazz Brunch theme, featured live jazz music by David Fulker Jazz, sparkling mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, and a Louisiana brunch catered by Spice of Life. Lee Shainis, from Intercambio, served as auctioneer and Sara Basloe traveled to Boulder from Costa Rica to honor her good friends the Tragers by introducing them as honorees.From Menorah to the Tragers:
Menorah is eternally grateful for the support, friendship, hard work and good cheer of Barbara and Tom Trager. They have shaped our community with love and wisdom. Ever humble and selfless, the Tragers nonetheless agreed to be honored today because they put our organization’s best interests above their own modesty. Menorah could not have better friends.”
In an unfortunate twist, Menorah’s Executive Director, the “Cinemaven” Kathryn Bernheimer, sustained a serious fall on Friday and was unable to attend. After many months of planning, the volunteers, committee. board and event staff were well-prepared, and thanks to Bernheimer’s vision and leadership, delivered a flawless and delightful event with Menorah board president Susan Litt standing in for Kathryn as mistress of ceremonies. Bernheimer is expected to make a full recovery.
