80 Years of Temple Beth Sholom: Annual Gala

“Journey Through The Decades” – TBS Annual Gala celebrating 80 years.
Saturday, April 29, 2023

By now you know that Temple Beth Sholom is turning 80 this year!  We’ve been around since 1943 and experienced many memorable and amazing things together… we’ve shared simchas, sorrows, holidays and so much more.  It’s time to celebrate all we’ve been through and look ahead to what’s still to come.  And that starts with our Annual Gala “Journey Through The Decades, 1943 – 2023” to take place on Saturday, April 29, 2023 here at Temple Beth Sholom.

In addition to a festive cocktail hour and delicious food stations, we’re going to have lots of dancing – with music through the decades!  There will also be a fun photo booth and some bid-worthy Live Auction items.

And we’re especially excited about bringing back the Reservations Only program.  Watch your mail for more information and for ways to become a Reservations Only host.   Some of the events being planned right now include:

  • A Spanish Tapas Evening
  • Totally 80’s Party
  • Girls’ Night Out
  • Hike and Champagne Brunch
  • Scavenger Hunt and Car Rally

So plan to join your Temple Beth Sholom family on April 29th….. this will be a party to remember!

On April 29th 2023, Temple Beth Sholom will be celebrating 80 years with a formal Gala/Fundraiser and we need your help.  We are looking forward to a great evening filled with memories, music, dancing, dining and a live auction.

We are looking for special items for our “Live Auction Packages.”  As we have such a diverse congregation with varied interests and hobbies, we are asking for any donations or service you can provide.

  • Are you a sports enthusiast? Do you have sports memorabilia or seats to the Lakers, Clippers, Chargers, Angels, Dodgers, Ducks, Kings, Galaxy, etc? How about access to sporting goods such as a snowboard, surfboard, or other sports equipment?
  • Are you a fan of the theatre? Do you have tickets to one of our wonderful OC theatres? Do you have connections to a fabulous restaurant or want to donate a special dinner before the show, or a special bottle of wine? Might you have access to car service/ limousine service for this special night?
  • We are hoping to auction a “wellness package.” We may be turning 80 years old this year, but we can always do something to look more youthful.  Do you have access to professional services or products for that youthful glow? A piece of jewelry perhaps to make her feel especially beautiful?
  • How about items to package for the traveler/adventurer? Do you have a home, condo or timeshare that you could donate, frequent flyer airline miles, or a special tour or experience for the guests?
  • Do you have something that you think would be a great item for the Live Auction? We can create a package or action it independently.

We do appreciate any donations you can contribute to our live auction where we hope to generate a significant amount of funds for TBS programming.

Temple Beth Sholom is a non-profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible.  If you have something to contribute, an idea, or would like to discuss options, please contact Shani Boone at shaniboone2@sbcglobal.net
