Jewish Family & Children’s Service raises over $300K at annual Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon

Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) raised more than $300,000 at its annual Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon. Held in-person for the first time since the onset of the pandemic, the event was at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Resort & Spa on Jan. 6. Funds raised at the event will be used to impact and support the lives of more than 40,000 individuals throughout Maricopa County.

The signature event, chaired by Allan and Carol Kern, featured Mi-Ai Parrish, former Arizona Republic publisher, as keynote speaker. The current professor of Media Innovation and Leadership at Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University spoke about the interplay and culpability of media and messaging with antisemitism. Parrish also serves as president and CEO of Phoenix-based MAP Strategies Group.

“Because of the generosity and commitment of our donors, lives will be transformed now and into the future,” said JFCS CEO Dr. Lorrie Henderson.

Individuals interested in supporting the JFCS mission can make an online financial gift via the JFCS website at jfcsaz.org/donate. All gifts made to JFCS are eligible for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.
