At times, the annual event known as Super Sunday feels more like a family reunion or a simchah than a longtime tradition bringing together the community in support of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore and its agencies and programs. Folks there tend to enjoy catching up and schmoozing in between making phone calls and having a nosh.
At the 2017 phonathon on Sunday, Oct. 29, approximately 200 volunteers turned out at the Park Heights Jewish Community Center on a drizzly day to help raise more than $1.2 million from 486 donors. Greeting volunteers at the door during the four-hour event were members of The Associated and Jmore staffs.
“We are so thrilled at the generosity of our Baltimore Jewish community who stepped up yesterday to support The Associated’s Annual Campaign,” Tammy and Fred Heyman, co-chairs of Super Sunday, said in a joint statement. “The money we raised for The Associated and its agencies will provide lifelines to so many of our most vulnerable community members, not just here in Baltimore but around the world.”
For its fiscal year 2018 which runs through June 30, The Associated has a campaign goal of $31 million.
