South Florida Shomrim Upcoming Events

We look forward to our organization participating in community events including:

South Florida Shomrim Annual 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.  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.
