UPCOMING YPD party kicks off JFED campaign

“We’ll bring the bar…you bring the mitzvah” is the tagline for the Young Professionals Division of Jewish Federation’s 2008 Campaign Kickoff event, a YPD bar mitzvah party. The fun will begin from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Ritz-Carlton.

The event will feature open bar, desserts, St. Louis radio talent Deejay Jay Maddox, caricaturists, a strolling magician, balloon artist, games, prizes, photographers, dancing and much more.

Those who attend are encouraged to participate in the bar mitzvah project and bring school supplies for underprivileged children in St. Louis’ Partnership 2000 sister-city region in Israel, Yokne’am-Megiddo.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for young adults to party while celebrating the good that Jewish Federation does in our community through the Annual Community Campaign dollars,” said co-chairs Jeff and Jessica Wax.

Cost, which includes open bar, desserts, all entertainment, giveaways and more, is $36 to pre-register or $40 at the door. Parking is free.
