NEWS-ACCESS ladies

Some of the flappers of ACCESS — (from left) Rachel Einstein-Sim, Gabby Leon, Sarah Attermann, Katie Goldstein, Shira Rothman, Calin Todd and Chloé-Anne Ramsey — hang out at the party.

The 1920s-themed ACCESS 25th anniversary gala was the cat’s meow. The speakeasy Le Fais do-do was hard to find but proved the perfect place for this soirée for over 200 well-heeled guests. The glitz was long, the speeches were short, and the outpouring of support for former American Jewish Committee Regional Director Sherry Frank was as stirring as a bathtub of bootleg gin. The AJC exceeded its goal by raising more than $55,000 for an endowment in Frank’s name to fund ACCESS activities.
