On November 3, 2016, JELF hosted a lively Young Professionals Hour (the 2nd annual). Held at the Tesla Showroom at Lenox Square in Atlanta, the “Do You Know a JELFie?” theme was a big hit — encouraging our Event Chairs and their friends to actually figure out if they may have a friend or someone else they knew who actually got a JELF loan. With many former recipients in attendance, many were surprised to learn how many individuals they did in fact know! With JELF assisting hundreds of Jewish students throughout the community, it is no wonder that everyone knows a JELFie!
Thank you to those who came out to support including the many recipients and their friends! Special thanks for David Margolis, Red Brick Brewing Company, Zinburger & The Spicy Peach for the great food & drinks and to Tesla Lenox for hosting us and giving away a Model S to drive to the lucky winner (Brad Cohen). Of course, extra special thanks also go to our awesome Even Co-Chairs: Brad Cohen, Aubrey and Jed Wasilewsky, Ali and Marc Garfinkel, Jason and Melissa Cooper and Jordan & Scott Arogeti! You all rock and we couldnt have done it without you.
