13th Reflections Raises $120,000 for Scholarships

The Boulder JCC’s 13th annual Reflections Gala was a great success Saturday night, raising over $120,000 for the Early Childhood, Youth, and Camp Scholarship and Program Fund, and honoring Barbara Steinmetz and Emily and Jonathan Cooper.

It was the second year the event was held at the Boulder JCC itself. Over 400 guests enjoyed food and drink stations positioned strategically around the building before trooping into Levin Hall for the evening’s program.

The program included a rousing game of “Heads and Tails” with a generous basket of hand-picked wines for the winner, and moving tributes to the evening’s honorees. Oh, and a visit from Aladdin’s Genie, who serenaded the guests accompanied by live musicians…

Congratulations to the honorees, thanks to all of the committees who worked on the event planning, and, of course, thanks to all the donors!

More photos from the evening can be found here.
