Fundraiser to benefit Israel children's fund

The fifth annual cocktail reception and silent auction to benefit  the Abraham and Chava Greenstein Camp Gan Israel children’s fund, will be celebrated on July 25, from 5 to 7 p.m.  at the state of Donald Greenstein, in Roxbury.  The event is organized to offer the  local community the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child.

Camp Gan Israel, was established to enable all  children, regardless of religious affiliation or financial ability, to enjoy a meaningful summer camp experience in the beautiful country setting of Northwest Connecticut.

Featured at the L’chaim 4 kids, will be Goldie’s bus, the unique decorated bus donated by local friends of Chabad, which brings inner city kids up to the camp daily.

The camp choir will perform some of their favorite tunes and their spirit reflects the warmth and friendship of Camp Gan Israel.  Kosher cuisine and cocktails will be served as well as distinctive kosher wines and cocktails.

“Camp Gan Israel exercises the Chabad Lubavitch motto ‘people helping people,” says Rabbi Joseph I. Eisenbach, of Chabad Lubavitch of Northwest Connecticut. “We have been lucky enough to help scores of inner city children with a once in a lifetime opportunity of fresh country air  and an abundance of  caring and love.”

The silent auction will feature many rare items, including over $25,000 worth of jewelry and wonderful vacation get-aways. From signed celebrity pieces to health and beauty packages, the auction promises to offer something for all.  All items are being donated by local community members.
“We are blessed to have such generous people living in our midst, who really exemplify the meaning of selflessly caring for others,” says  Eisenbach.
