[COMMUNICATED] The Lakewood community is abuzz with the bustling preparation for the Bonei Olam Fundraising Dinner. Thousands of men have turned out in parlor meetings in the past few weeks, showing their support for the Bonei Olam cause, and for the couples that experience the pain of childlessness. Statistics indicate that one in six couples experience the agonizing emptiness, pain, loneliness, and heartache that infertility brings. One in six is a staggering number, bringing the blow much closer to home. That means someone you know, whether it’s a brother, uncle, a grandchild, chavrusa, a friend, coworker, or a neighbor, is benefiting directly from the support of Bonei Olam.
This isn’t just helping out strangers. It is our friends and family who need our help, and it is therefore our responsibility to show our support and partner with Bonei Olam to help continue the work that they do in creating generations.
Chances are, you’re already thinking, “Oh, not another dinner.” Baruch Hashem, as the community grows, so many mosdos and organizations require funding, and you have probably attended your fair share of dinners, which can tend to be a little tedious. Not this dinner.
Bonei Olam has significantly cut down on the traditional boring parts of the dinner program, and in place brought in the highly acclaimed, world-renowned, household name superstar Benny Friedman. Benny will be performing in an intimate, unplugged style, allowing the audience to be moved and uplifted, to be swept away by the power of the inspirational melodies. Along with Benny Friedman will be the guest speaker, Rabbi YY Jacobson, who is eminent across the globe for his inspirational speeches.
No he won’t be speaking for an hour at the end of the dinner, preaching to a sea of glazed eyes, but instead be a part of the uniquely crafted program, weaving his contemplative words with the musical entertainment, leaving you touched and reflective.
The décor will be so creative and eye-catching that you won’t be able to help but snap a picture to show everyone you know. The magnificent centerpieces will be an idea you’ll want to take with you for all future events.
