Fundraising at Har Shalom

 

The Har Shalom Fundraising Committee is a rotating group of volunteers who plan community fundraising events, organize programs like the annual Hanukkah Market and monthly Supper Clubs, and connect members to the nationwide fundraising scrip program that provides rebates for items people buy every day. Together with the professionals and educators at Har Shalom, this committee strives not only to raise funds, but also to create friendships, foster creativity and encourage inclusion for all. This committee always welcomes new volunteers and bright ideas - contact Tal Bloom, CHS Fundraising Chair to get started.

Success Story

In 2018, the Fundraising committee released our updated Har Shalom community  cookbook. We worked with the publishing company to establish recipe intake format, schedule, costs and timelines. We collected, collated and proof read all the submitted recipes - almost 200 in all! We selected the book design including the binding, cover and section dividers. We had a lot of fun, and got really hungry reading.

Then in early spring we partied! With donated desserts from Northern Colorado's best bakers, wine from Wilbur's Total Beverage and beer from Maxline Brewing, and 85 fellow congregants we released the cookbook. The sanctuary was transformed into a relaxed gathering space where people could mingle, review and bid on the silent auction and watch as our very own Lew Wymisner performed some magic. Our kids also got to celebrate at their own pajama party. All the ingredients for a great night came together from the hard work of our committee. In the end we raised over $7,000 for CHS, a success no matter what measure you use.
