“MACHIN A PIKNIK” 2015

South Florida Shomrim’s Annual free kosher “MACHIN A PIKNIK” will be held on Sunday, March 15, 2015, 11 am to 4 pm at CB Smith Park.  Over 300 members of the public safety communities attend this picnic with their families.

Each year the Annual Machin A Piknik is instrumental in raising vital funds benefiting more than 30 charities each year.  South Florida Shomrim relies on the generosity of our members as well as our friends in the community to help us continue to support those in need and assistance.

Please consider a tax deductible donation of funds, goods, and/or services for this event.  For the picnic, we are looking for underwriting for entertainment including but not limited to a rock wall, giant slide, clown, face painting, and others.  We are also looking for goods and/or services for a raffle or auction.  All donations will be included in our announcements and acknowledgments.

We are also in need of volunteers at the picnic.  Do your kids need community service hours?  Kids need to participate in Shomrim’s events to be eligible for the scholarship.

Thank you for your kind consideration and your support of this annual event and South Florida Shomrim Society.

Familial Dysautonomia Fundraiser

My son Justin is sponsoring a fundraiser in honor of his friend Danny who has FD. There will be a DJ Party for teenagers and their families at the New York Comedy Club on February 20th at 7:00 P.M. The Club is located at 8221 Glades Road in Boca Raton. Donations are $15 per ticket. Additional contributions are welcome. Contact Justin at justjeter2@bellsouth.net.

FD is an abbreviation for Familial Dysautonomia, a rare, fatal, genetic, neurologic disease present at birth. Kids with FD live in very unstable bodies.  All their internal functions are unpredictable. They are prone to wide swings in blood pressure and heart rate, rapid decline of oxygenation and life-threatening autonomic crisis. The children who are susceptible to this disease are the product of parents who are both from an Ashkenazi Jewish background.

Holocaust Event

On December 15th, I attended the Broward County Student Awareness Day event at the Broward County Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center in Hollywood, Florida. Hundreds of high school students had an opportunity to sit down and converse with Holocaust survivors. It was an incredible experience for all. I will be arranging to have one of the survivors speak with us at the February meeting.
