You’re invited to CONNECT with friends, food, and our mission!


By Morgan Goad, Associate Director of Development,Jewish Family Services

JFS Connecting Hearts is thrilled to invite you to the second annual CONNECT!

This special tasting event benefits our mission to find loving families for every child in Central Virginia’s foster care system and kicks off our “A Hand to Hold” Adoption Awareness Month campaign in partnership with WTVR CBS 6. (You can read all about it below!)

This year’s CONNECT is live and in-person at Garden Grove Brewing and Urban Winery on Thursday, Oct. 27, beginning at 5 p.m.

Guests will enjoy Garden Grove’s handcrafted wine, beer, and cider paired with food from two of Richmond’s most decorated chefs: Lee Gregory (Alewife, Southbound) and Joe Sparatta (Heritage, Hardywood). It’s not every day you can drink and nosh with a purpose like this!

Tickets and sponsorship packages are on sale now. Your gift will help JFS Connecting Hearts CONNECT 250 new foster, adoptive, and kinship families to children in foster care awaiting loving homes!

Want to learn more about how your business can CONNECT kids in foster care to permanent, loving families? Please contact Morgan Goad at mgoad@jfsrichmond.org or (804) 349-0758.

 Jewish Family Services is supported, in part, by a generous annual contribution and programming grants from the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond.
