It’s a night of glitz and glam­our, of gen­eros­ity and com­pas­sion, of hon­ors and recog­ni­tion – it’s the HaNadiv Gala! The sig­na­ture fundrais­ing event for the Adolph & Rose Le­vis Jewish Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, this year’s fes­tiv­i­ties will cel­e­brate the 25th An­niver­sary of the lo­cal agency, as well as honor three re­mark­able in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions that have shown an ex­traor­di­nary record of com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity.

Chaired by com­mu­nity leader Emily Gra­bel­sky, this year’s gala will be held at 7 p.m. on Jan­uary 10, 2009, at the Bro­ken Sound Club in Boca Ra­ton.

The high­light of the spec­tac­u­lar Gala is sure to be the pre­sen­ta­tion of the HaNadiv Crys­tal Award to Shirley & Al­lan Solomon, Le­vis JCC ad­vo­cates for more than 20 years who were in­stru­men­tal in the agency’s growth.

“Shirley and Al­lan have dis­played for more than two decades vi­sion­ary lead­er­ship, pas­sion and sup­port to the mis­sion of the Le­vis JCC,” said Thomas R. Ka­plan, pres­i­dent of the Adolph & Rose Le­vis JCC. “They have con­tin­ued to be ad­vo­cates and pil­lars of the Jewish com­mu­nity both on a lo­cal and na­tional level.”

This year’s HaNadiv Gala also will honor Stephanie Owitz Green­berg with the Le­vis JCC Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Award, which goes to a pro­fes­sional leader who makes a con­tri­bu­tion to the bet­ter­ment the com­mu­nity.

Also at the HaNadiv Gala, an or­ga­ni­za­tion is pre­sented with the Le­vis JCC Pres­i­dent’s Recog­ni­tion Award for its com­mit­ment to the mis­sion of the agency. This year’s re­cip­i­ent is Howard Kaye/Barry Kaye As­so­ci­ates.
