Miami Philanthropists Join Together at Pacesetter Event, December 17

Hundreds of Miami’s most committed philanthropists will join together on Thursday, December 17 to celebrate Jewish community and pledge their support for the most vulnerable at the Pacesetter Event. The event, one of the most important yearly gatherings for the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign, raises millions of dollars to support vital social services in Miami, in Israel and around the world. It will be held at the Hilton Miami Downtown.

Headlining the Pacesetter Event will be keynote speaker David Gergen, the Co-Director of the Center for Public Leadership and a senior political analyst for CNN who has served as an advisor to four U.S. presidents of both parties.
