Social event at the Sopranos Dueling Piano Bar
July 21, 2013 – Friends of the IDF (FIDF) Greater Miami Young Leadership Division hosted a social event at the Sopranos Dueling Piano Bar in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The event, was chaired by FIDF YLD Board member Morris Esquenazi, it attracted a wide variety of attendees who enjoyed great music, drinks and a short video/presentation from the president of YLD Miami, Evan Glassman.
“This event was built as an opportunity to expose the FIDF organization, its mission, and the people involved to an expanding younger audience,” said Evan Glassman, President of the FIDF Greater Miami YL Division.
Morris Esquenazi, the event chair and FIDF Great Miami YL member, said “I wanted to chair this event because it combines two things I’m passionate about: music and Israel. Younger professionals are all about live music. We planned this event so they can make a positive impact on Israel while having a good time. My hope is that young professionals will become more aware of our mission and get involved in our organization.”
Overall, the event was a great success and FIDF YLD Miami chapter looks forward to introducing more unique events throughout the year for our Young Professionals in South Florida. Miami’s Young Leadership Division is geared towards young professionals in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s who share a passion for supporting Israel’s soldiers. The funds raised from this event will go toward FIDF wellbeing programs for IDF soldiers.
