Monroeville synagogue to throw 'Cash Bash' fundraiser in November
A synagogue in Monroeville is throwing a “Cash Bash” in November to help raise money for itself as part of an ongoing 60 th year anniversary celebration.
The fundraiser will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 10 at Temple David, 4415 Northern Pike. The cost is $38, which includes admission and heavy appetizers. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for additional purchase. Children under 10 are free.
The synagogue’s fundraising chair, Jessica Raithel, said the party will include a dance floor and DJ.
“It’ll be a dance party type atmosphere,” she said. “Also, you don’t have to present to win things.”
The fundraiser will feature cash prizes up to $300 and Penguin memorabilia. There will also be a $100 winner announced every 15 minutes.
The event is open to the public. To purchase tickets and reserve your spot, call Temple David at 412-372-1200.
