The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore held its Centennial Campaign kickoff event on Tuesday night, Jan. 28, at Pikesville’s Woodholme Country Club. More than 250 Associated leaders and supporters attended the gala.

The program featured speeches by Beth H. Goldsmith, public phase chair of the Centennial Campaign; Associated President Marc B. Terrill; and John C. Davison, who is co-chairing the campaign with Joseph S. Weinberg.

The reception also featured the presentation of videos chronicling the history of the Associated and Baltimore Jewry, as well as cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

This month, the Associated officially launched a yearlong celebration of its centennial anniversary. Among the plans to mark the occasion is a traveling exhibition documenting the federation’s history and achievements; an array of events, podcasts, digital and social media offerings, publications and community gatherings tied to the 100th anniversary; and a special centennial-themed campaign to raise $200 million for special initiatives, targeted endowments and capital funding.

So far, more than $105 million has been raised by the campaign.

Next Monday evening, Feb. 3, the Associated will have another Centennial Campaign kickoff event at the PGA National Resort and Spa in West Palm Beach, Fla., featuring cocktails and dinner.
