The 9th Annual Jewish Family Service’s Tribute Dinner will take place on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. The evening includes cocktails at 5:00 pm with dinner to follow.
Every year, we come together to celebrate friends who have made a beneficial impact in our community, and to celebrate JFS’s successes and its positive influence in the lives of many Utahns. We are pleased to recognize David Dowsett, Joelle Kanshepolsky, and Stan Rosenzweig for dedicating themselves to improving the lives of their neighbors and fellow citizens.
David Dowsett has been a long-time volunteer in the Jewish Community, including serving as President of Jewish Family Service’s Board of Directors. David’s leadership was always insightful, visionary, and kind. His guidance enabled JFS to bring light and hope into many lives that have trouble finding support.
Joelle Kanshepolsky served on the JFS Board for six years, including two years as Vice President. A resident of Utah for the last 8 years, Joelle is the Director of Development at The Children's Center and also is Principal of Crossroads Consulting where she supports other local nonprofits. Joelle has spent countless hours volunteering over the years in places like Wisconsin, Boston, Ecuador, Malawi, Israel, and now in Utah, for a variety of causes close to her heart.
Stan Rosenzweig has brought his entrepreneurial spirit to his work with the American Cancer Society, Junior Achievement, and more recently The American Red Cross, Cottonwood Canyon Foundation, The Utah Food Bank, FEMA, the Utah Dept. of Emergency Management, and the Cottonwood Heights Community Preparedness Committee. Stan has deployed to more than a dozen disaster responses from floods in Texas, an earthquake in Nevada, wildfires, and the earthquake and tsunami in American Samoa. You can also catch Stan’s wit in his pieces for City Weekly.
Why the Tribute Dinner Matters
The Tribute Dinner raises vital funds so that JFS can continue to help individuals and families in our local community facing life's challenges – aging, illness, unemployment, financial uncertainty, hunger, mental health concerns, family problems, or personal issues. JFS serves people of all backgrounds by providing affordable mental health counseling, care management for seniors and respite for their caregivers, food pantry and emergency assistance funds to those who fall on hard times, and community education to the public.
