NFL All-Pro Jason Taylor Headlines Sports Night


BOCA RATON, FL – It’s time for men of all ages who care about great sports, great fellowship and the community to come together for the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Men’s Division Men’s Night Out on Jan. 12. Attendees will hear four-time NFL All-Pro legend Jason Taylor speak about his impressive football career, his charitable foundation and his other professional and philanthropic pursuits. Now an NFL analyst for ESPN and other sports outlets, Taylor will join the men on at Woodfield Country Club, 3650 Club Place in Boca Raton. The $90 cover charge includes dinner and an open bar (dietary laws observed) starting at 6:30 p.m. In addition, Josh Cohen, on-air host for ESPN West Palm, will emcee this special sports night to remember. A minimum gift of $180 to the 2016 UJA/Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Annual Campaign is required to attend. Those who have contributed at least $1,800 are also invited to a VIP cocktail reception with Taylor, beginning at 5:30 p.m., featuring a meet-and-greet, photo opportunities and autographed sports memorabilia. Robert Pick, co-chair of Men’s Night Out with Ken Lebersfeld, is thrilled to have Taylor as the guest for the event. “This evening of entertainment will be a terrific chance to get together with men from throughout our local Jewish community and hear from a famous sports legend and active philanthropist,” Pick said. Goal-oriented and community-driven, the federation’s Men’s Division is creating a fellowship of strong, connected men who are committed to building a legacy together. “Being on the committee is a great opportunity to help plan exciting events where guys can get together to bond over common interests, such as sports, food and travel,” said Lebersfeld. “At the same time, we plan how the federation can improve our community, and how we can make lives brighter for fellow Jews in Israel, all over the world and right in our own backyard.” Following up on the success of last January’s mission to Cuba, the men’s division is planning a trip to Chicago in March, where they will have access to VIP speakers and exclusive opportunities to enjoy the “Windy City,” while connecting with a great group of men. The Men’s Division, now in its second full season, is co-chaired by Stuart Ganslaw, Gary Rubin and Peter Wohlgemuth. It’s generously sponsored by BNY Mellon Wealth Management. The event is sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, Eliot Popper with Morgan Stanley, Greenbrier Development and the Sandelman Foundation. Southern Wine & Spirits of America is the in-kind liquor sponsor.
