Bowling for Babka was a Fabulous Success!

Home > Uncategorized Blogs > Bowling for Babka was a Fabulous Success!

What an amazing time we had at Bowling for Babka! Over fifty people showed up and ate babka, bowled and reveled in the fun. Old timers, newcomers, teens, toddlers, grandmas, and CJC members from all of our regions were present, and they brought friends and family members with them.

Jana and Jule at B4BHuge hugs of gratitude to the B4B planning committee–Jana, Nancy, Sarah, Rani and Mindy– who did a spectacular job of planning this event.  Rachael Gershenson also graciously guided the committee through the financial details. And the event volunteers—Bobbi, Alan, Nancy, Cathy, Marta, Dave, Mariah, Gary— helped out by selling raffle tickets, serving babka, and sharing their playful spirit and enthusiasm. We raised over $1000!
