Thank you to everyone who supported the Friends of the Center Dinner. That night we celebrated all of the champions of the MJCC, including our fantastic members who make this place so special. We were thrilled to host nearly 350 people to support our honoree, Steve “Rosy� Rosenberg, the Harry Glickman Scholar Athletes, the inductees of the Oregon Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, and the crucial place that the MJCC serves in our community today. All of us at the MJCC were truly humbled by the generosity of our donors that night and want to express our sincerest thanks for their support of our organization. Thank you.

She works with people of all ages and abilities.
