Welcome to the Temple Rock Café 2011! We are proud once again to transform TBE into the “Temple Rock Café.” Temple Rock has become a wonderful tradition; a special night where the TBE community comes together for an evening of great music, fabulous food and wonderful conversation. This year, the evening should be better than ever. We encourage you to dance the night away, sing along to the old standards you know so well, and enjoy this night with friends old and new. The Temple Rock Steering Committee has worked hard to make sure that this is a special night. It is a labor of love that reminds us what a special place TBE is. As TBE celebrates its ninetieth year, let us remember how fortunate we are to be members of such a wonderful institution. Temple Rock is TBE’s most important annual fundraiser after the High Holy Day Appeal. Please take part in both the live and silent auctions – not only do you walk away with fabulous items, but every dollar goes directly to TBE’s operating budget. Please spend generously as there is something for everyone, from sports and theater tickets to hotel and vacation packages, from jewelry and clothing to paintings and other fine works of art, from tastings and catered dinners in your home to gift certificates for some of the top restaurants in Stamford. Our thanks to all of you who contributed to and solicited items for this year’s auction. Finally, our special thanks to our Temple Rock Patrons. We are very fortunate to have so many generous and talented people at Temple Beth El. Again, thanks to everyone for coming to this year’s Temple Rock Cafe. Enjoy!
