Last month, the Ahavath Sholom Ladies Auxiliary held a unique fundraiser: Donorpalooza.
The event featured four programs on three different days. On Tuesday, May 16, Lynell Bond Norman, Hedy Collins and Carol Paul hosted mah jongg at Lynell’s home. On Wednesday, May 17, Marla Owen and LaJean Sturman hosted Painting with A Twist at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Sunday, May 21, began with a brunch at Blue Mesa hosted by Stephanie Zavala and Katrina Diaz. Donorpalooza wrapped up Sunday afternoon with Game Night hosted by Stephanie Dubinksy, Ava Beleck, Linda Lavi and Debby Rice at the Lavi home. The funds raised will go toward supporting the Ahavath Sholom Gift Shop, its kosher kitchen and its religious school.
