Join the Luncheon Committee

Planning for SHALVA’s Annual Luncheon is underway. Your participation on the Luncheon Committee will help make our main fundraising event a success.

We are thrilled that Caroline Bettinger-Lopez, Professor of Clinical Legal Education and Director of the Human Rights Clinic at the University of Miami School of Law, is the speaker. Bettinger-Lopez is featured in the film Home Truth, a chronicle of a mother’s pursuit of justice and the lasting effects of domestic abuse.

Responsibilities of a Luncheon Committee Member are nominal, and are mostly handled by email:

  • Agree to have your name listed on the invitation.
  • Provide us with a list of 4-8 friends/colleagues/contacts who might be interested in coming to the luncheon. We will send invitations to your list.
  • Write notes to your contact list to be includes inside the invitations.
  • Attend the event, if possible. (Individual tickets cost $180. Sponsorship opportunities are available.)

If you are interested in more involvement, there are opportunities to participate in other ways such as soliciting for sponsorships and in-kind donations, helping to create a program booklet or decorations, and day-of assistance.

You can still be on the committee and help SHALVA even if you cannot attend the luncheon. Contact Alison Bloom, Director of Development at if you have any questions.

Please click here by March 5th to join the committee.

Hope you will join us!
