Grub & Gratitude
On Friday, November 17, 2017, JLOSH members, sponsors, friends and neighbors came together for a night of giving and fun at our inaugural fundraising event, Grub & Gratitude. Nearly 200 women and men packed The Woodland in Maplewood, New Jersey for a casual night of eating, bidding and of course, dancing! We kicked off the event by giving attendees the opportunity to participate in one of JLOSH's signature annual community service events, the Thanksgiving Basket drive. Over 300 bags were packed with all the fixin's for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, which were then distributed to families in need in Orange, New Jersey. Once everyone had a chance to do some good for the community - and see where their funds were going - they headed downstairs for some delicious grub and plenty of fun. With scrumptious food prepared and served by the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, over 200 silent auction items, and a hopping dance floor, everyone left feeling good (after having done some good - and raised a lot of money for a great cause).
