Jewish Family Service held a benefit Sunday, Nov. 11, at Olive and June. Generously underwritten by Martin Cirkiel, Shawn Cirkiel and their families, the JFS Benefit raised more than $33,000 to support emergency financial services.

This year, Lawrence Maze was honored for his dedication and leadership to Jewish Family Service.

More than 100 people ventured out in the cold and rain to show their support. Guests enjoyed a delicious meal and were inspired by the speaking program, which included remarks by Marty Cirkiel, JFS Executive Director Gil Levy, JFS Cabinet Chair Kim Schocket, and guest of honor, Lawrence Maze. ■
