On Sunday, February 10, the HANC High School Project JUMP team hosted an interactive trivia night benefiting the Koby Mandell Foundation. Students organized this evening in order to raise funds to support free therapeutic programs for child victims of terror in Israel. The evening opened with an informative video about the foundation. HANC students Devorah Schwartzman and Benjy Tucker shared their life-changing stories about volunteering at Camp Koby this past summer. Afterwards, guests competed in a trivia competition hosted by Benny Amar of Azamra DJ. Raffles were sold throughout the evening and guests were thrilled to take home their new gifts. The evening concluded with an announcement by co-captains Max Kahn and Devorah Schwartzman that their fundraising goal was exceeded, raising more than $4,700 for the Koby Mandell Foundation.
Sponsors such as Edward Jones Investments, Azamra DJ, Ackerstein Caterers, Bagel Town, Genadeen Caterers, and Hunkis of Plainview helped ensure the success of the evening. Ms. Joyce Lieberman, team faculty advisor, and Rabbi Daniel Mezei, director of student life, lent much support and guidance. v
