On Sunday, June 1, 2014, the JCC celebrated Brighter Futures for Our Children by honoring the achievements of CHOC Children’s Hospital of Orange County; the JCC Preschool Expansion and its chairs, Jay Witzling and Scott Cross; and our artist extraordinaire, Lynne Kaplan.

Our honorees exemplify the Merage JCC’s commitment and service by providing a strong Jewish impact on our community. They inspire, invigorate and allow the Merage JCC to accomplish more for our children every day.

Our vision for the future…

  • Inspire learning in our newly expanded preschool building, accommodating 350 children in state-of-the-art facilities.
  • Continue to support CHOC Children’s Hospital of Orange County’s mission to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children.
  • Increase opportunities for children to spark their imaginations through art and culture.

Proceeds benefit:

The JCC Celebration Ball raises necessary funds to provide scholarships for families in our community dealing with difficult economic circumstances. Proceeds will benefit JCC Scholarships for summer camps, as well as preschool and after school programs.
