The evening was a wonderful opportunity to gather in-person to raise a glass with a cocktail or spiritfree (nonaloholic drink) and toast the amazing history of JASC. We are humbled by the outpouring of support and generosity that made it possible to surpass our goal to raise $75,000 for the 75th Anniversary!

Did you miss the event? You can still donate to the 75th Anniversary – $75,000 Challenge by clicking here. All funds raised will support JASC’s mission serving the needs of our community through our social service programs, Legacy Center endeavors, and cultural activities.

Thank You to our Generous Sponsors!!
