Our Annual WJCS Gala is taking place this year on Tuesday April 13th at 7 pm. This year our Gala will be virtual—easily accessible from whatever your device—and inspiring, entertaining and moving.

Our 2021 honorees are Sarah Kayle and Suzi Randolph, two remarkable women passionately committed to supporting WJCS as we help more than 20,000 Westchester residents overcome significant challenges in their lives. The event will feature a performance by the Platt Brothers (Ben, Henry, and Jonah) that we know you'll enjoy. Personal stories shared by WJCS clients will open your hearts and minds to the struggles our neighbors have faced in the past year and see how WJCS has made a difference. You'll have the opportunity to participate in our very special Give for Good Auction which offers you the chance to direct your support to specific WJCS programs that resonate most personally with you.

The Covid pandemic has resulted in unprecedented circumstances for all WJCS clients. At a time of great uncertainty, WJCS has been certain to be there for our clients—whatever their need. When the pandemic began, we instantly pivoted to offering our programs and services virtually and, in person, delivered diapers, food, other basic items to families in need. To date, WJCS clinicians have conducted over 80,000 mental health sessions, via secure video-chat and phone. We've continued providing counseling and support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community, Holocaust Survivors, the unemployed, those suffering from bereavement, caregivers, and the Westchester Jewish community at large.

Join our supporters, community and business leaders, and legislators in celebrating our honorees and the work of WJCS on April 13th. The WJCS Gala is our only fundraising event of the year. Please register for the Gala and donate generously to ensure that WJCS can continue to serve people struggling throughout Westchester. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.

We look forward to seeing you at our WJCS Virtual Gala on April 13th at 7 pm. Your support has never been more important.
