Legacy Donor Appreciation Event 2018
May 6, 2018 – In honor and recognition of our community’s legacy donors, the Jewish Community Foundation held our annual appreciation event at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park. The museum had recently opened a new exhibit — Israel: 70 Years of Craft & Design. This original exhibition celebrates the art and innovation of the nation’s diverse people through a rich range of objects of daily use. Over 100 objects — including Yemenite jewelry, Bedouin textiles, contemporary garments, sustainable and industrial design, adornment incorporating ancient materials, furniture and ceramics — illustrate the special fusion of European and Arab influences embodied in Israel’s modern craft
The event was a success — we had a full house! It was a beautiful morning with an impressive mix of some wonderful people. There were donors, community leaders, Jewish and secular organizational heads and staff, and representatives of our Create a Jewish Legacy program (both from the Jewish Community Foundation and our partnering Jewish organizations).
We sincerely thank all of our legacy donors, everyone in attendance and the friendly staff and volunteers at the Mingei International Museum. Please see above for photos from this special occasion.
