The Yachad Effect

Smiles from the Community Builders Bash

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

On Sunday, November 22nd, hundreds of friends of Yachad spilled into American University’s Katzen Center to celebrate the accomplishments of two pillars of the community, Ellen Lazar and Lois England. Cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, a video and an award presentation filled the evening and tens of thousands of dollars were raised for Yachad’s programming. Thank you to all who came. Check out some of the fantastic photos taken of the evening.
