‘Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert’ Graciously Accepts $403 Check from JASA
Ruth Cohen (second from left), president of the Jewish Association for Service of the Aged (JASA) office at the Hebrew Educational Society (HES) in Canarsie, presents a check for $403 to Kings County Supreme Court Justice Ellen Spodek (center), co-president of Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert (JALBCA), along with Fay Ascher (left), recording secretary of JASA at the HES; Michele Brown (second from right), treasurer of JASA at the HES; and Sue Ann Partnow (left), project director of JASA at the HES.
JASA donated the $403 that it raised in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month when JASA senior citizens sold their handmade jewelry, which were pink pins designed in the shape of a flower and featured the ubiquitous Breast Cancer Awareness pink ribbon.
On May 7, JALBCA will host its annual gala on Park Avenue in Manhattan. New York State Chief Administrative Judge A. Gail Prudenti will be one of the honorees.
