Over the past few years, we have reimagined our annual Boulder JCC fundraiser to become JFest, a celebration of our community. The entire month of February is filled with special programming and exciting events, and will culminate in a virtual fundraising drive on February 22 and 23. JFest is about more than money. This is about a community where we all give fully from our hearts, however we can, so as to have the most joyful, empowered, and fulfilling experience.
This will be followed by an in-person celebration party on Saturday, February 25 from 8-11 pm. No more assigned-seated dinner, long program, or paddle raise! Rather, this new, community-centric way of fundraising focuses on what best fits our unique and growing organization. Everyone is welcome to attend this party and there is no ticket price for this event. Advance registration is strongly encouraged here. We ask that you consider a donation of $54 or more per person.
Some exciting features of the celebration include:
- Doughnut Wall
- Custom Cocktails throughout the building by Cocktail Caravan
- DJ Tip Top Music Entertainment for dancing in Levin Hall
- Mentalist Daniel Jaspersen will be performing throughout the night
- Jazz Trio in the Early Childhood Center
- HipPops Gelato pops
- Coffee drinks by The Espresso Affair
- Science themed desserts by the Inventing Room
The Messinger Gallery is exhibiting the fine art works of Carol Ann Watcher. Her works explore the nuances of depth, light, form, space, and color in a new way: Richly hued abstract collages. The exhibition is closing on February 27 and the artist will be present at the JFest celebration. 25% of the purchase price will go to the Boulder JCC to support the arts programming, for any pieces purchased the evening of February 25. We are thrilled to have Carol Ann join us at the celebration.
If you are New-ish to Boulder and you would like to connect with some other new folks before the party is in full swing, Shari Blake Schnee will do some introductions with this small group to make sure everyone is comfortable in the party. You can email email@example.com for details.
