Jewish Association for Residential Care hosts pre-Gala event

BOCA RATON — JARC (Jewish Association for Residential Care) hosted an elegant cocktail party to kick off JARC 25, the 25th Anniversary Gala, set for March 13.

The pre-event celebration chaired by Jan M. Silverman, honored JARC’s Gold Key Sponsors. The festivities were held at JARC’s residential property located at the Stein Living and Learning Center Dec. 16.

Guests were treated to a solo piano performance by self-taught prodigy and JARC client Virginia Greene, along with extensive culinary treats prepared by JARC clients who work each day in the JARC Gourmet Café located on site.

“Our pre-gala is a wonderful opportunity to thank our supporters of long standing as well as to introduce new supporters to our program. Showcasing the talents of our clients is the best way to share the important work that we do,” stated JARC Executive Director Dr. Debra C. Hallow.

This year’s Gala marks the 25th anniversary of JARC.  Dr. Mel and Mrs. Edith Clayman, the agency’s founders, are this year’s esteemed honorees for the silver celebration. WPTV’s News Anchor Jay Cashmere and Storm Team Meteorologist Glenn Glazer will be co-emcees for the event.
