2012 Joy of Education Dinner Breaks Record Honoring Helfman Legacy The 12th Annual Joy of Education (JOE) Dinner, honoring Jack Helfman z’l was truly a journey. The event was held on October 25 and was chaired by Lori and Phil Cohen, with honorary chairs, Elaine Helfman, Sheri Feldman, Renee and Alan Helfman and Sandi and Steven Wolf. More than 600 guests filled the EWS Kosberg gym, and raised a record-breaking $590,000 — and still counting! The Helfman family was touched at the opportunity to share Jack’s legacy — and life lessons — with such a large and supportive crowd.


“What would Jack say? ‘Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, others make it happen.’ He led by example... He made it happen,” Steven said in his JOE Dinner speech about his father-in-law. “About tonight, Jack would say that he felt humbled by this honor, grateful to everyone of you who has contributed to the success of this event and hopeful that Helfman Field will provide opportunities for children to learn and grow in the spirit of good sportsmanship and fair play,” Steven added.

Chairs Lori and Phil Cohen helped put together the memorable evening in celebration of the Helfman Legacy.

Members of the Helfman family came out in force to honor the legacy of patriarc Sandi Wolf, Alan Helfman, Renee Helfman, Elaine Helfman, Sheri Feldman, Ror Helfman, Samantha Wolf and Blake Helfman.
