J Associates’ new ‘Battle Of The Stars’ puts teamwork, competition on a collision course

Nothing like a little friendly competition to bring an entire community together. On second thought, who are we kidding? The battle is on, bragging rights are up for grabs, and remember, there is no crying in the “Battle of the Stars.”

“Battle of the Stars,” which will pit participants against each other in a medley of mental and physical challenges, is the new event fundraiser from J Associates, the women’s auxiliary of the St. Louis Jewish Community Center. The event will take place on Saturday, March 2, at the J’s Staenberg Family Complex.

“Teamwork and competition are on a collision course. I cannot give anything away but think ‘minute to win it’ games and silly competitions that keep you laughing all night while raising money for the community,” said event co-chair Shana Singer.

Picture this, teams of all sizes, from dynamic duos to powerhouse squads, rallying together towards victory. Whether you’re a solo competitor looking to make some new friends or a seasoned pro with a dream team, there’s a place for everyone at Battle of the Stars. All adults over 21 are welcome.

“This event offers opportunities for everyone to participate in any way they are comfortable,” said Singer.

But seriously, it’s not just about the competition, it’s about camaraderie and connection. Spectators are welcome to cheer on their favorite contenders and soak up the atmosphere. Proceeds support all the J’s programs, services and scholarships.

“We are so delighted to lead this important initiative that benefits the critical work that the J does,” said event co-chair Jennifer Rosenthal. “This will be an amazing, fun event and we hope the entire J community will join us.”
