On Sunday, Nov. 4, more than 600 members of our community joined Federation at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown to stand up and be counted at an incredible event that included a performance by Jay Leno and the presen­tation to Stephen B. Klein of the Joseph Smukler Outstanding Community Leadership Award.

Thanks to the generosity of attendees (and Jay Leno!), more than $2 million was raised for Federation through the event.

Federation thanks the many generous community leaders who made the evening truly amazing, including Stephen Klein and his family; honorary co-chairs Vicki and Gary Erlbaum; event co-chairs Marji and Andy Goldman, Karen and Bill Kramer, Judy and Bud Newman, Lainey and Beryl Simonson and Margie and Brian Wargon; the event committee; and Federation’s leadership.
