Ruby Askowitz Birthday Fundraiser
A wise Chinese Proverb argues that,
10 years ago, we looked for charity for Aaron’s bar mitzvah chesed project. Aaron was an avid tennis player and we hoped to find an organization which would resonate with him. We were fortunate to get connected with the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled (ISCD). We continue to support the ISCD to this day. We find the organization essential to the growth of so many children and adults. The center serves a broad community of roughly 2000 families. It offers programs which nurture both the physical as well as emotional development its participants.
On March 15th, the ISCD was forced to temporarily close its doors due to the pandemic. Over the past few days, with strict new protocols, small parts of The Center have begun to reopen. The Center derives 40% of the revenue needed for operations from fees. With the reduced services and added expenses, The Center is counting on support and generosity from friends.
So, in celebration of my milestone birthday, I hope you can join me in making a donation to the ISCD. $18 covers the cost of my “go to” drink....( multiple “rounds” are welcomed).
And in honor of my milestone birthday, all donations will be matched DOLLAR for DOLLAR! So please help me help the ISCD!
