Cowboys & Cocktails - Annual Fundraiser 2020


Physically Distancing but not Socially Isolating

We will be gathering together virtually for the JFSC annual fundraiser to honour the memory of Sam Ousher Switzer z”l 

When: Thursday, June 11, 2020 - Time: 6:00 p.m. - We'll go live on Facebook (details to follow)

Venue: Your home, in front of your device

Dress Code: Western wear

Dinner: Exclusive menu options from Grumans Catering and Delicatessen - available for pickup or delivery

Tickets: $100 

While we have to physically distance ourselves, we do not have to socially isolate ourselves from one another. As Sam would have put it “the party can wait but the needs of the community cannot”. This is why we are introducing JFSC’s Cowboys & Cocktails Virtual Facebook Live Fundraiser.
