Jewzapalooza - NYC, NY
Jewzapalooza, the annual Jewish music festival in NYC, was a great success this year, attracting Jewish people of all ages with great tunes from contemporary Jewish music sensations. In addition to the entertainment, festival goers who visited the Manischewitz booth were treated to delicious Grape Juice and Tam Tams of all flavors.
Congratulations to Darya Miller who won our Jewish Penicillin raffle for a year's supply of Manischewitz Matzo Ball Soup. Thank you to all those who participated!
Jewzapalooza, which takes place every September, is part of the annual Oyhoo Festival & Conference produced by Downtown Arts Development, a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation, development, and production of unique and compelling artistic programming.
Magen David Adom's "Race for Life"
- Atlantic City, NJ
Participants of Magen David Adom's annual "Race for Life" fundraiser were pleasantly surprised by a special appearance of Magic Max at their boardwalk event in Atlantic City on Sunday July 9th, 2006. Magic Max entertained the children and generated excitement for the event as runners and volunteers were re-energized by deliciously light and fluffy Manischewitz Meringues.
The American Friends of MDA's annual race attracts hundreds of people from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York to support Magen David Adom in Israel. The funds raised at this year's event were used to support the expansion of the Magen David Adom National Blood Center in Ramat Gan.
