JCC’s Eat. Bid. Laugh! Event A Success

The SJJCC auction committee

Sid Jacobson JCC is thrilled to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the amazing generosity of its donors, sponsors and attendees at the March 28 Eat. Bid. Laugh! Auction & Epicurean event. The organization surpassed its goal of raising more than $1.4 million to support individuals of all ages with special needs; adults and seniors living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias; and those affected by cancer and their families. Proceeds raised from the event will also benefit new programs at SJJCC such as the Food Bank and the Aftercare Community Transition Program for Recovery.

More than 600 guests sampled savory and sweet epicurean tastings from 27 of Long Island’s finest eateries while bidding on one-of-a-kind items and experiences, including tickets to see Ariana Grande or Pink, house seats to Hamilton plus a backstage tour, a chance to be part of the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, among other experiences. The evening was capped off with a performance by the hilarious, Emmy award-winning comedian John Mulaney.
