Extraordinary Volunteer Susan Brooks Wins Phone-A-Thon $200 Gift Card!

Sixteen volunteers joined Federation staff for Tuesday evening’s phone-a-thon and raised $25,487 for our 2013 annual campaign. These fabulous, energetic volunteers reached out to community members and asked them to be involved in our efforts to strengthen our San Diego community, connecting with Israel, while helping those in need in our community as well as in Israel and in 70 countries around the globe. “I feel so good making these calls and asking other people to help out”, said a first time volunteer who also said “it is so important that our community is there for one another. That says a great deal about our Jewish community.” Another volunteer stated, “We should do this every week. We did a mitzvah and also had fun at the same time!” The evening included dinner, drinks and an opportunity drawing for a $200 Apple gift card. Mazel tov to extraordinary volunteer Susan Brooks for winning!

Mandy Danzan, Director of Development, was pleased with the results of the evening and particularly with the turnout of community volunteers. “They were so enthusiastic and immediately got on the phones after enjoying an Israeli falafel dinner. Every person they connected with and every dollar raised is so important in helping Jews in need here in San Diego, in Israel, and around the world.” 
More evenings like this one will be planned in June, so stay tuned for more information and YOUR chance to win a $200 Apple gift card!  For more information on upcoming events like this, contact Phyllis Freeman, Executive Assistant for Development, at (858) 737-7148.
