On Christmas Eve Federation’s NextGen team will host Place2Be, an evening of philanthropy, community, and celebration at the Andaz Hotel in downtown San Diego. The event will bring hundreds of young adults together to raise money for local homeless shelters, community service projects in Israel, and aid for Jews in the Ukraine.
The event will take place from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the beautiful Andaz Wine Bar and Nightclub. In addition to ticket proceeds benefiting several local, national, and international philanthropic causes, there will be an on-site food collection area for the Jewish Family ServiceHand-Up Food Pantry, a local organization that provides supplies for new mothers including: diapers, wipes, bottles, and formula. Participants are encouraged to bring a donation, and their dancing shoes!
Place2Be will be more than just the place to be on Christmas Eve with DJ Este spinning, a huge dance floor, and an incredible venue; this year, attendance is expected to exceed 500+ young Jewish adults from all over Southern California. Place2Be will be the ultimate evening of schmoozing, boozing, and tzedakah (charity).
