Cinco de Mayo
The Auxiliary is committed to nurturing and enhancing the lives of the residents at The William Breman Jewish Home and its communities. Involvement in The Auxiliary occurs on many levels. It may include committee work to help plan special events, hands-on volunteering with residents or simply supporting Auxiliary activities and programs.
The Auxiliary members participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities offered through The Home. Visit the VOLUNTEER page for a complete listing of activities. In particular, The Auxiliary sponsors the Jean A. Cohen Gift Shop, Signature Activities, Resident Manicures and Showtime.
The Jean A. Cohen Gift Shop
The beautiful Jean A. Cohen Gift Shop, located in the lobby of The William Breman Jewish Home, is one of our many volunteer endeavors, as well as a wonderful place for residents, visitors, staff and Auxiliary members to shop. All proceeds benefit The Home. Check out this rewarding and fun volunteer opportunity offered through The Auxiliary.
Signature Activities for All Seasons
The Auxiliary hosts special festivities for our residents throughout the year. Everyone involved—the residents, the volunteers and the staff—enjoy festive decor and scrumptious meals and treats while having a great time celebrating holidays together. Be part of the fun and sign up to work on one of our special event committees.
Sweetheart’s Ball in February
February presents a wonderful time of Hot Pink and Very Red.....Sweetheart's Day! Balloons, cards, roses, and heart-shaped candy, with music and dancing for all. Delicious supper and special desserts enhance this holiday’s festive theme.
This Mexican Holiday is a ball of fun featuring traditional guacamole, salsa, chips and Mexican desserts. Special decor represents the holiday with Mexican colors and accessories.
Spring Auxiliary Closing Luncheon
Our Closing Luncheon is held at the beginning of May, and the membership is invited to attend. New officers and executive board members are installed, retiring board members are recognized and volunteer awards are bestowed. The program includes a raffle, door prizes, and warm, engaging homespun entertainment that makes this a not-to-be-missed event.
Summer Wine & Cheese Tasting
In the late summer, a fun afternoon of yummy cheese, fruit, sweets and wine are served to the residents in the lovely garden outdoor sitting area. A sing-a-long makes this a very entertaining affair.
This is a wonderful program enjoyed by family members of both the residents and volunteers. A festive atmosphere with holiday entertainment makes this a very special evening.
