Laughter, giving highlight annual campaign kickoff

Mark Sena and Cindy Spahn, 2014 Campaign cochairs Mark Sena and Cindy Spahn, 2014 Campaign cochairs Members of the audience listened and laughed during the Tampa Jewish Community Center & Federation’s Annual Campaign kickoff Oct. 10 as comedian Joel Chasnoff presented the humor to be found in everyday Jewish life.

“It was so wonderful seeing our Jewish community join together for such a successful – and funny – campaign kickoff event. Joel Chasnoff was the perfect opening in reminding us what it means to be Jewish is different for everyone, but that our shared Jewish experience is what brings us together … and often makes us laugh,” said Cindy Spahn, campaign co-chair.

Following Chesnoff’s performance, donors were asked to support the 2014 Annual Campaign and new South Tampa JCC, under development at the former Fort Hesterly Amory.

The response was enthusiastic, with the campaign bringing in triple the amount that is usual for this event, said Alissa Fischel, director of development.
