On Sunday, May 26, RCCS, the Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society, kicked off its Five Towns Campaign, with its inaugural breakfast at the home of Motty and Hadassa Jacobowitz.
As always, the event was beautiful; this year, the event was held outside in a tent on the driveway of the Jacobowitz home. The weather did its part, as the sunny, warm day brought out droves of people in support of this great organization.
While the food and the ambiance were amazing, the real reason why the over 100 guests came out was to support the amazing work of RCCS. Besides its lifesaving work worldwide, in the Five Towns alone, the impact of RCCS is surely felt, as 49 patients and their families are being helped out by this amazing organization through its medical guidance and insurance grants program. In the last 12 months alone, RCCS’s annual budget has grown by over 30%. The generous and gracious crowd connected with the message of “Youniting for RCCS” and helped make the Lawrence breakfast a tremendous success.
There are two more RCCS events planned for the next month, a breakfast with Eli Levin in Cedarhurst and a concert with Avraham Fried in North Woodmere. If the Lawrence breakfast is any indication, those events will also be successful and bring the families and patients of RCCS the help that they so desperately need.
