Big Night 2014: Game On

Celebrating Our Role in Children's Lives

Saturday, March 8, 2014 * 7:30 pm
JCC in Squirrel Hill
Lead Sponsor: PNC Bank

JCC Big Night: Game On, our eighth annual Big Night fundraiser, celebrates the JCC's important role as a community resource—a gamechanger in the lives of children. Honoring the child in all of us, Game On will be more fun than a Barrel Of Monkeys—filled with music, dancing and enough food to feed the Hungry, Hungry Hippos. As we celebrate our community, we'll be supporting the JCC's Annual Fund, which provides scholarships that enable children of all ages to participate in vital programs at the JCC.

The Cause
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh has enriched the lives of children in the community for almost 120 years. Indeed, the JCC was founded with the mission to help improve the lives of immigrant children and families, providing education and activities for socialization and health. The JCC remains at the center of the community, offering a wide range of activities that help children grow and mature to meet the challenges of modern adulthood. The just-completed physical renovation of our Early Childhood Development Center reflects our commitment to provide the most progressive programs for children at every stage of their development.

From early childhood, family and after-school activities to summer camps, sports and swim lessons, youth fitness, school-age musicals, and teen volunteer and employment opportunities, the JCC is the gamechanging provider of supportive, educational and fun programs that are vital to children from infancy to adulthood.

The Goal
Your support helps fund quality programs for children and teens of all backgrounds, abilities, religious affiliations and financial need.
