400+ Celebrate at the YLD Big Event!
Our biggest Big Event yet! Thank you to the 400+ young adults who celebrated in style at the YLD Big Event, our signature fundraising event of the year. It was a night we'll never forget with drinks, eats, live music, plus a hilarious performance by Cleveland comedian Mike Polk, Jr.
"Tonight we've seen so many points of pride within our Cleveland community," said Andrew Zelman, YLD Big Event Co-Chair. "Tonight, it's all happening here, at the YLD Big Event, in the heart of downtown Cleveland!" Special thanks to all of our YLD Big Event Co-Chairs, Andrew and his wife Shannon, Sara & Akiva Cooperman, and Rachel & Ken Weinberg.
Every one of us plays a part in making Cleveland and our Jewish community thrive. Over 1200 young adults contribute to the Campaign for Jewish Needs each year, the annual fundraising campaign that ensures our community's vitality and vibrancy in the year ahead.
Thank you to everyone who gave generously to the 2018 Campaign at the YLD Big Event. If you haven't made your gift yet, visit www.campaignforjewishneeds.org and help change and save lives here in Cleveland, Israel, and 70 countries around the globe.
Thank you to all of our inspiring speakers, host committee members, and corporate sponsors Benesch, PNC, and the Westin. We also want to thank the Cleveland Jewish News for sponsoring the photo booth. This event would not have been possible without the planning, support and leadership from our YLD Big Event Planning Committee: Emily Danzig, Caroline Goldman, Boris Goldsteyn, Sam Krichevsky, David Leb, Chad Leikin, Hannah Rosen, and Leslie Shvets, our YLD Board Chair: Barry Guttman, our YLD Board Vice Chair: Natan Milgrom, our YLD Campaign Co-Chairs: Adam R. Jacobs and Dayna Orlean, and our Ben-Gurion Society Co-Chairs: Doug Breitenbach, Cameron Orlean and David Roth.
And, thank you again to all of our guests for joining us for an incredible night!
