Virtual Gala Coming: Stay Tuned

Honoring 10 Years!

COVID-19 Update

Dear friends-

The safety, health, and well-being of Jeff’s Place community members is our highest priority. As such, due to the nature of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the many unknowns surrounding it, we need to cancel our IN-PERSON 10-year anniversary gala, which was scheduled for May 2, 2020.  

However, although the event itself is cancelled, Jeff’s Place relies heavily on our generous donors to fund our free programs, and we rely on our annual gala to raise half of our annual operating expenses.

Therefore, we are moving our silent auction and other gala-related activities online, where you will have an opportunity to bid on items and help us raise these critically-needed funds. Philanthropic opportunities can be found here.

We are excited to still provide you with all of the meaningful experiences we planned to showcase at the gala with speakers and opportunities to see firsthand the powerful impact of Jeff’s Place. PLEASE STAY TUNED and check out our website, Facebook and Instagram over the next month or so for updates!We are so grateful to you, our Jeff’s Place village, for your ongoing support and encourage you to share our updates with your own networks. There is much to share with you about the first ten years of Jeff’s Place and the exciting plans we have for the next ten!

Thank you for your ongoing support of Jeff’s Place. If you have any questions or concerns – or want to connect in any way – feel free to email us individually to discuss any concerns you might have. 

In good health and with gratitude,

Dale Sinesi – Gala Chair (

Rick Kaplan – Board Chair (
