Holiday Party & Gift Drive
Throughout the holiday season, the Junior Board collects funds and donations for an annual Holiday Party for CFR’s families. Children and families enjoy music, snacks, crafts, and a visit from Santa! Each family receives a gift bag filled with toys, books, personal care products, gift certificates, and cold weather clothing. The party is also a very special opportunity for you and your company to volunteer during the holiday season.

Mix, Mingle & Share – the Annual ‘Friendraiser’
Each spring, the Junior Board hosts an annual “friendraiser” event to recruit new Junior Board members and volunteers. For the past few years, the event has been graciously hosted by Proskauer Rose LLP, and has included complimentary cocktails and appetizers. Members of the CFR Junior Board, staff, and Board of Directors provide a short presentation so guests can learn about CFR’s mission and the Junior Board’s activities.
