Friends of the IDF Casino Night Raises more than $100,000 For IDF Soldiers

Cleveland, OH, June 13 – More than 300 supporters of the Ohio Chapter of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) last night played casino games, held raffles – and used more than $100,000 in proceeds to benefit wellbeing and educational programs for Israeli soldiers.

The Ohio Chapter of FIDF held its Third Annual “Guys’ Night Out” Casino Event, which was sponsored by 50 local organizations and individuals, was co-chaired by Jared Miller and Jeff Cohen, two prominent supporters of FIDF. 

"The Guy’s Night Out event supporting FIDF is truly a special night and it was a huge success! We attracted over 300 guys to support such a great cause,” said Miller. “Not only is the night full of entertainment and camaraderie, but it increases awareness for the FIDF and we raise meaningful funds that directly impact the soldiers’ lives. This is officially the Premier Men’s event on the Jewish Calendar in Cleveland." 

Jeff Cohen added, “The event had a great vibe and the crowd had a lot of fun raising money for an important cause.” 

The casino night is just one example of how FIDF fuses important philanthropy with fun and community. 

Tamir Oppenheim, the FIDF Midwest Region Executive Director, said, “It is a thrill to have a bigger turnout each year, and it warms our hearts to see the huge support that the community shows for the brave soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces.”

“It was a phenomenal evening for all of the men supporting our IDF soldiers, but even more importantly, it was a great opportunity for all to make the statement that there can be no more important cause than supporting our troops in Israel,” added Irving Rosner, an FIDF supporter who attended the Casino Night.
