The Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS) Brighter Tomorrow Event is the nonprofit organization’s annual signature event showcasing JFCS’ impact on the wellbeing of more than 40,000 people in the Valley.
Robert Sarver, owner of the Phoenix Suns and executive chairman of Western Alliance Bancorporation, will deliver the keynote address. Sarver is a dedicated philanthropist who is committed to supporting Arizona’s local community, both through Phoenix Suns Charities and his and his wife’s own personal contributions. Under Sarver’s leadership, Phoenix Suns Charities has granted more than $21 million to Arizona nonprofits in the areas of education, healthcare and sports.
The Brighter Tomorrow Event is JFCS’ annual fundraising event. Last year’s event raised over $400,000 to support a variety of programs including primary medical care, counseling and behavioral health, domestic violence victim assistance and Jewish community services.
This year’s event will be offered at no cost and will highlight the organization’s many programs and services, with a particular focus on its response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Chairing the event this year will be Lynn and Larry Kahn.
