Federation Hosts Hit Summer Social

More than 300 people gathered under the stars at the Hotel Palomar for Federation's summer social: Party on the Roof! The spirited crowd enjoyed appetizers and signature cocktails as they mixed and mingled, and learned about the work of Federation.

The evening featured Federation’s three major focus areas: Jewish Caring, Israel & Overseas, and Jewish Connections. Staff members chatted with guests about the work of spotlight programs within the areas, highlighting the breadth of Federation’s commitment to building a vibrant Jewish community in San Diego, in Israel and around the world.

“We are delighted that the Party on the Roof attracted a true cross-section of our community,” remarked Federation President & CEO, Michael Sonduck. “In addition to representing every age cohort, it was a wonderful opportunity for newcomers to Federation to join with veterans in a festive, casual environment. The evening perfectly reflected the fundamental commitment to growth and continuity that is so central to our work. We are very grateful to committee members Silvana Christy, Ira Feinswog, Karen Kogut, Danielle Miller, Guy Parselany and Laura Tauber for making this a great evening!”

The Party on the Roof kicked off the new program year, to be followed by events such as Men’s Event, OPTIONS and the San Diego Celebrates Israel Festival. Sonduck encouraged the guests to watch for announcements of the ongoing programming, and to stay involved.

The event was underwritten by Danielle and Brian Miller of Geppetto’s Toys, Andrea Feinswog of Andrea May Interiors, Ira Feinswog of Pet Emergency & Specialty Center, Jessi Shidransky of People Photography, and Carrie Miranda of Witless Photography.
