Col-lec-tion (n.) 1. Gathered works of art found in a museum or private holdings.
As co-chair of the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles’ Ben-Gurion Society (BGS), a National donor recognition program for young adults who commit a minimum gift of $1,000 or more to the Federation’s annual campaign, I strive to create exclusive, unique events for our members a few times a year. On October 7th, our second event this year, we created an evening of art and conversation as BGS members toured a private art collection. We visited a home with a remarkable collection of modern and contemporary art and enjoyed dinner by Wolfgang Puck in the garden.
Thank you to the BGS members who came to support and enjoy this amazing event. BGS empowers young adults to combine their knowledge, passion and resources to build a stronger Jewish community at home, in Israel and around the world, and we’d welcome you to our next event.
Networking Tip: One of the tips I learned at the event is to always wear your name tag on your right lapel. This way, when you shake someone’s hand, your name tag is directly aligned with the other person’s eyes, making it easier to see and remember your name.
