On Thursday, Oct. 8, JEVS (Jewish Employment and Vocational Services) Human Services hosted its annual Strictly Business awards luncheon at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel in Center City.

The 17th annual event was a fundraiser; about $195,000 was raised before the event began, and about 600 attendees pledged over $21,000 during the event, thanks to encouragement from JEVS board member Benjamin Zuckerman and a live feed recording attendees’ texted-in pledges.

Otherwise, though, the focus of the day was JEVS’s awardees.  To learn the stories of our Inspiration Award winners, Anthony and Kareem, read more in the Northeast Times
