The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh will host CELEBRATION!, its first live, socially distanced event since the start of the pandemic, on Thursday, June 10 (rain date June 13), at 301 W. Station Square Dr.
The drive-in style event will feature performances from comedians Craig Robinson and Avi Liberman. Robinson is best known for playing Darryl Philbin on NBC’s Emmy-winning “The Office” and Liberman is the star of the documentary “Land of Milk and Funny.” Liberman also organized “Comedy for Koby,” a tour which took both him and Robinson to Israel for the benefit of the Koby Mandell Foundation.
“After so many virtual get-togethers, I’m excited about seeing people who, through the Federation, do so much good in our community — even if I just see them through a car window,” said Ellen Teri Kaplan Goldstein, vice chair of the Community Campaign, in a prepared statement. “The Federation is taking all precautions to protect attendees and staff from COVID while giving us a chance to celebrate our accomplishments together.”
Attendees are required to wear masks when not in their own vehicles. Sealed, pre-packaged hors d’oeuvres will also be provided by upon guests’ arrival.
The celebration is sponsored by the Ira and Nanette Gordon Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.
Admission is $18. Invitees include donors who have contributed at least $1,000 to the 2021 Community Campaign, legacy fund holders, and their adult children. Capacity is limited, so the Federation recommends early registration. The deadline to register is Sunday, June 6.
