Dear Members & Friends,
For the ast eleven years the Young Israel of Long Beach Charity Fund has sponsored the Robert Chiger Scholarship Concert. Bob Chiger and his family were long standing members of the YILB. He was nifter at the prime of his life and the congregation in consultation with the family decided to perpetuate his memory with the establishment of a scholarship fund. This year our scholarship concert will feature Mordechai Schapiro, an outstanding young performer who has become the latest “hit sensation”. The funds that are raised through this event are dedicated exclusively to providing the vital assistance that Long Beach families need to support Yeshiva tuitions and summer camps.
In recent years the monies distributed have made a significant difference in the lives of countless families and has assured that the children in our community receive the proper chinuch while spending their summers in an appropriate environment.
Enclosed please find tickets for the concert which can be purchased at $30 p/p. We have a wonderful program and we are looking forward to greet you personally. This year the event will take place at the Long Beach Hotel, 405 East Broadway, Long Beach, NY. We would like to thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting this very worthy endeavor. We have different sponsorship categories which include Guardian $1000; Benefactor $500; Patron $360 Donor $180 and Sponsor $100. Contributions can be made either by visiting our website at WWW.YILB.ORG or by mailing in your donations.
