Federation Super Sunday and Annual Meeting to be held on Oct. 22

By: Reporter staff

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton will hold a combined Super Sunday and Annual Meeting event on the morning of Sunday, October 22. During the event, there will be the election of officers to the Federation’s Board of Directors and the giving of the Yasher Koach awards, which honor local members of community organizations. That afternoon, the Phonathon will begin and continue for the next three days.
“We combined our two major events last year and it was a great success,” said Sima Auerbach, executive director of the Federation. “This year, the event will be held after the holidays so that people can be relaxed and ready to enjoy the fall. It’s the perfect time to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Come hungry, because there will be a delicious brunch.”
People will also be able to make their 2018 gift at the meeting, rather than waiting for the call that afternoon. That will help the Federation know what funds are available before the allocation process, which begins in mid-October and culminates on November 15. “It is helpful to have a sense of how much money we’ll be raising before we allocate funds,” Auerbach said. The Federation can be reached at 724-2332.
