JFest: The Boulder JCC Reimagines Reflections

This year, in order to ensure the health and safety of the community, and in response to current state and county restrictions, the Boulder JCC has redesigned their annual gala fundraiser, Reflections, to celebrate the power of the community in a time when we can’t gather in person.

Executive Director Jonathan Lev says, “Every year I look forward to seeing our community gather and support the JCC at Reflections. We were challenged this year to find an engaging way to bring everyone together while raising critical fundraising dollars.” 

This year, in lieu of Reflections, the Boulder JCC is excited to introduce JFest: The Boulder JCC’s February Fundraiser Reimagined, highlighting their creative virtual programming in a month of fun and interactive online events culminating in a 36-hour fundraising drive on February 23-24, featuring exciting new ways to engage with and support the J. They are welcoming back their first ever Reflections chair, former board member, and a woman who has filled every role the JCC has to offer, Susan Rona.

Since March, the JCC has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by expanding their community outreach, hosting over 7,000 participants at virtual programs, donating over 3,000 pounds of produce from Milk and Honey Farm, and hosting food drives for EFAA. They have used their building to host blood drives as well as the 9Health Fair. This new fundraiser will follow suit in engaging the community while keeping everyone safe.

Stay tuned for more information. If you are interested in sponsoring JFest, becoming a matching donor for the fundraising drive, or if you have any questions, please contact Jessica Bornstein at jessica.bornstein@boulderjcc.org or 720-749-2514.
