Jafco Jungle Island Luncheon

At 9 AM on Tuesday morning a large group of Jafco women boarded a bus which took us to Jungle Island in Miami for a fundraiser luncheon for Jafco. We arrived to Mimosa cocktails and a huge silent auction and boutique before heading into the dining room to hear Alina Spaulding speak. This former Russian immigrant mesmerized the crowd telling how her family came here from Russia with no more than $1000 and were taken in by the Jewish Federation who found them a furnished apartment and helped them migrate into becoming Americans. A very awesome afternoon.
