NextGen Hosts High Score Happy Hour

On Thursday, January 15, NextGen hosted another successful and well attended event – High Score Happy Hour. More than 75 Jewish young adults gathered at Coin-Op in North Park for an evening of friendly competition at the classic arcade-themed bar. Attendees noshed on delicious appetizers, sipped on tasty happy hour drinks, and schmoozed with old and new friends. Event proceeds benefited One Happy Camper – a program of the Jewish Federation and Foundation for Jewish Camp, which sends kids to camp for a traditional Jewish summer camp experience.

“Once again, I am thrilled by the turnout and involvement of young adults in the San Diego Jewish community,” said Danny Fleischer, NextGen Manager. “I am proud of the NextGen community for raising a significant amount of money for One Happy Camper, a program that is near and dear to my heart.”
