Dear Family & Friends,
We are very excited and looking forward to our Bar Mitzvah celebration.
As far back as we can remember, Friendship Circle and LifeTown have always been a very important part of our life. We watched as the LifeTown center became a reality, offering myriad opportunities for recreation, education, and therapeutic play for individuals with special abilities and their families. LifeTown includes some incredible spaces, featuring an indoor city, a zero-entry pool, gym, and so much more.
For our Bar Mitzvah we are raising money to donate 1 of the 3 lanes for the new fully-accessible Bowling Center! Bowling is one of the most favorite activities for the participants of all ages.
As part of this dedication, we are committed to raising $50,000, and our family will match every dollar donated in honor of our Bar Mitzvah. We hope everyone will join us in supporting our very ambitious & meaningful project.
Why the Bowling Center @ LifeTown?
Some of our earliest memories are of participating in Challah bakes, attending holiday programming and even going to summer camp at LifeTown! We have been attending the annual FCwalk with our family since we were 2! (Go team Simon Says….Walk!) So, it makes perfect sense that, in honor of our upcoming Bar Mitzvah, we would choose to do something super special for the place that has been such an integral part of our childhood.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with LifeTown, and the Friendship Circle, let us share with you. Friendship Circle is an inclusive organization that provides assistance, support, and programming to 20,000 individuals with special needs and their families. They provide recreational, social, educational and vocational programming. In addition to helping those in need, the Friendship Circle enriches all who volunteer there by enabling them to reap the rewards of selfless giving.
LifeTown is the 53,000 Sq Ft fully inclusive & accessible center which is the home to the Friendship Circle in our community. Please see the amazing Good Morning America feature story below.
We have experienced 1st hand how lifechanging it has been for both the participants and volunteers to have so many wonderful activities available within the walls of LifeTown.
Thank you in advance for your support.
