Come to First Bite…Don’t Say Maybe!

Come to First Bite…Don’t Say Maybe!

As you may have seen on You Tube, the summer smash hit “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson, has inspired many spoof videos. There are so many reasons to come to the Boulder JCC’s Exclusive Preview of First Bite Boulder, but we thought we’d provide you with this rhyming list, brought to you by some of our staff and our event chair.

“It will be a fun time for a gent or lady!” Julie Rich, event chair.
“I’ll be wearing something dark and jadey!” Michael Rosenzweig, Community Concierge.
“It’s a great event for a bubbe or zayde!” Kathryn Bernheimer, Arts and Culture Director. “It’s an opportunity to see the Boulder Theater be not so hazy!” Jonathan Lev, Executive Director.
“Dancing to Sambadende could get a little crazy!” Wendy Aronson, Assistant Executive Director.
“Now’s the time to register, don’t be lazy!” Jerry Pinsker, Facilities Manager.
“I’m excited to put on my dancing shoes, baby!” Susahnn Valente, Office Assistant.
“You may meet someone named Sadie!” Ben Brumbaugh, Development Assistant.
“It’s an opportunity to catch up with old friends, which is great (not lame-y!)”
Melissa Morrow, Graphic Designer.
“I can’t wait to try some amazing local food. Yum! Tastey!” Mark Megibow, J-Teen Director.

Why is the Boulder JCC staff dressed like this? Come to the Preview of First Bite Boulder to find out!

In all seriousness, the board and staff of The Boulder Jewish Community Center hope you will join them on Tuesday, October 30th, from 5:30 – 9:30 pm at the Boulder Theater. Nine local restaurants will preview their food for First Bite Boulder and community members will have an opportunity to get an update on the Boulder JCC’s Cornerstone Capital Campaign.

The restaurants participating in the event are 4580, Aji, H BurgerCO, Japango, Leaf, Pizzeria Da Lupo, T/ACO, and Tahona. In addition, Sweet Pea Catering is catering a kosher option and Spice of Life Catering will serve desert. Sambadende will provide the evening’s entertainment.

A limited number of spaces are still available and the Boulder JCC requests that you RSVP by Monday, October 29th. Tickets are only $25, and any additional donation is tax deductible.

The Boulder JCC is in the final stages of a capital campaign to build a new campus for Jewish life on a 10-acre site at Arapahoe Ave. and Cherryvale Road. The BJCC has already raised $17.1 million of its $18 million goal, making it the largest Jewish capital project in Colorado history. To reach this goal, The Sturm Family Foundation (with the participation of ANB Bank) has made an extraordinary challenge: If the Boulder JCC raises $500,000 by December 31, 2012, they will match that $500,000, dollar for dollar, to help us reach our goal!
