March 14, 2010 Dear Friends, On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to Jewish Family Service of the Desert’s 12th Annual House & Garden Walk. We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the five homeowners who have generously shared their exquisite homes with us for this one special day. We are truly honored to have some of the loveliest properties in the desert to showcase for this event. We would also like to thank Deanna Pearl and Joyce Wolff for their incredible leadership in making this one of the most successful House & Garden Walks in the 12 year history of the event. Thank you also to Kevin Katz and Babs Schrager for their hard work in producing this beautiful program book. Finally, we greatly appreciate the dedication of the house captains and the docents for their work in effortlessly facilitating the experience of hundreds of our guests touring the homes. All of the proceeds of today’s event benefit the men, women and children served by Jewish Family Service of the Desert. Your support provides critically needed services for some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Thank you for your commitment to the work of Jewish Family Service of the Desert. Warmest regards,

Judy Wallis
