Parkland residents Rona Brofermaker and Jacqueline Lederman along with  Marilyn Barker, Lily Cortes, Farla Hall, Jamie Wainland and Annette Youngentob hosted an August  afternoon "Cards and Games Luncheon", in Jacquie's Parkland home, to raise money for the CHABAD OF  PARKLAND-FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE'S Programs for Children with Special Needs. Forty five women and men participated and donated $1,872.00 to the Friendship Circle .

The sumptuous Lunch consisted of gourmet salads graciously donated by 'Stefano's Kosher Caterer of
Coral Springs'
and other donations of kosher delicious desserts and goodies. The warm camaraderie, surprise prizes and great raffle gifts delighted all attending. Cards, board-games and mah-jongg tiles were plentiful. [Photos from this event can be seen below.]

Friendship Circle's
events for children with special needs - which include Holiday Programs, Martial Arts and Bowling League activities, Teaching Life Skills, Family Events, opportunities for socialization and so much more. They thanked the group for their generosity and support stating that "Together, we can perform miracles."
