JALBCA’s Virtual Awards Presentation Gala
What a night! JALBCA salutes our honorees, volunteers, grantees, sponsors and attendees for making our first-ever virtual Awards Presentation Gala a smashing success! Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us on September 8, 2020, including those who participated in the lively chat in the sidebar, and special thanks to the more than 100 friends who have generously donated to support JALBCA and our grantees.
If you haven’t donated yet, please dig deep and DONATE TODAY! Your contribution of any amount will help change the lives of women with breast cancer. (Donate online at givergy.us/jalbca, “Make a Donation,” or at Donations, or mail your check to JALBCA, 100 Crosby Street, Suite 303, New York, NY 10012.)
If you weren’t able to join us on September 8th, go to https://vimeo.com/456620042 to watch the Gala, including the moving remarks of our fantastic honorees (Hon. Jenny Rivera, Judy Livingston and Daniela Combe on behalf of the IBM Legal Department), Maite Aquino Program client Patrice Beckford, Immediate Past Co-President Vilia Hayes and incoming Co-President Jaci Flug (including her heartfelt memorial tribute to long-time Board member and Dinner Chair Sandy Katz).
The gala also featured videos spotlighting the work of JALBCA grantees who provide mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women and legal and social services to women and families in crisis due to a diagnosis of breast cancer. And of course you won’t want to miss our terrific emcees, Gala Co-Chairs Rich Edlin and Maura Miller, and the inimitable Sharon Nelles. All of that (plus Claire Gutekunst’s recap of JALBCA’s year) in less than an hour!
We also invite you to view the virtual Gala Journal, featuring messages from our wonderful generous sponsors, which ran both before and after the Gala (it begins at 54:35 on the tape).
