Join the Gala Host Committee!

As a Host Committee member, you "lend us your name" to help promote the event on materials, including the gala’s digital invitation. We’ll ask that you help to spread the word and create a buzz about the event among friends, colleagues, and family. By supporting the event you will help us reach our goal of raising more money this year than ever before in support of SIJCC’s numerous programs. This year you also receive exclusive access to our upstairs VIP Lounge. 

See Host Committee Invitation

You are a leader in our community. Whether in the preschool, JLC, East Side Jews, Culture Lab, or our current or past board leadership, you play a key role in the growth of SIJCC, and care about the success of the center. Your early support of our event is your investment in our mission to be the center for diverse programming and cultural events on Los Angeles’ east side.

So what’s the commitment? Early bird tickets to the event this year are $99 each. We ask Host Committee members to make a commitment of $400, which gets you two tickets to the event, and your name on the invitation/website! Plus, this year you also get access to our upstairs VIP lounge.

Please let us know ASAP if you wish to join the host committee, so we can add your name to the digital invitation and webpage. Space is limited this year, so act now to get your spot!

To join, simply email Keara, SIJCC’s Development Associate. Contact her with any questions or concerns you may have as well.

Thank you in advance for your support and for all that you make possible. We look forward to a wonderful event!
