The Inspiration behind The Evening of Inspiration
Since 2005, Jewish Family Service of San Antonio has hosted a fundraiser each spring to draw attention to the organization and its many programs. From 2005-2014 this event was known as the Mothers’ Day Luncheon which honored numerous stars in our community who were supportive of JFS. The daytime event included speakers, music, auctions, and a delicious luncheon. In 2015 the event moved to an evening meal, with its name retaining its emphasis on mothers. In 2016, JFS decided to try something different and changed its name. There were too many fathers, brothers, aunts, cousins, and friends who made a difference for this organization. The event was renamed “The Evening of Inspiration” and continues to honor community members who have made JFS a priority and who continually inspire others to give with their hearts to Jewish Family Service. The Evening of Inspiration includes speakers, music, auctions or raffles, and a delicious meal. The goal of the event is to showcase the amazing work that JFS does for our community (and sometimes beyond) and inspire others to want to support this incredible organization.
