CHIC committee – Caring Heart’s for Israel’s Children raised £5,000 for Emunah at their first event, a sell-out Supper Quiz held at Mill Hill’s Hartley Hall on Sunday night (19 March 2017).
“It all started with Maccabi GB when I went with my husband who was playing football in Israel and a group of us went on a tour and of all the places we saw, it was the Emunah Children’s home in Afula that captured our hearts,” explains Chic committee vice chair, Adrienne Morris. “I’ve never done anything like this before but we got together and we oversold the places for the quiz and had a waiting list. There were 150 guests plus helpers.”
The committee comprises Richelle Joseph (chair); Adrienne Morris, Danielle Donne, Suki Grant, Dawn Isaacs, Sarah Leader, Laura Rose, Lu Simons, Gail Walton and British Emunah director Deborah Nathan.
British Emunah director Deborah Nathan adds: “We are delighted to have such a fantastic new committee and supporters who are all fired up to raise money for the vulnerable children in Emunah’s care in our residential home in Afula. The amount raised on the evening surpassed all our expectations and is a real testament to the hard work the whole committee put in to making the evening such a success. I am already looking forward to their next event!”
The quiz was run by Brian Nathan and his quiz team. During the evening Shlomo Kessel World Emunah Director spoke about the tragic lives of the ‘at risk’ children in Emunah’s care and a film about Emunah Afula was shown. A raffle on the evening was well supported and helped to raise additional funds.
The £5,000 raised by the event, will be matched in Israel and will be used towards the vital refurbishment of the teenage boys dormitory building.
