NowGen hosts family-fun event Feb. 28 at Windgate Ranch

Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix NowGen kicks off its 2016 program year with a family friendly event 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Feb. 28 at Windgate Ranch in Scottsdale.

Young Jewish adults ages 22-45 are invited to attend with their friends and family, including children and dogs.

The Sunday Funday features a kosher dairy brunch buffet and candy bar, live music and children’s activities, including a bounce house, and face painting. Adults can enjoy a mimosa and bloody mary bar, yard games and a service project for the Bureau of Jewish Education’s ACT program.

“With so many of our events happening in the evening, we are excited to start our year with a fun, family friendly daytime event that includes both young adults and young families,” said Stacey Cohen, NowGen senior director.

“We want to show all the Jewish young adults in Greater Phoenix that NowGen is for everyone looking for meaningful ways to engage with the Jewish community.”

The event is chaired by NowGen Programming Chairs Mitch Cohen, Leila Mikal and Aaron Wiener and NowGen Board Chair Rachel Hoffer.

“As a mom of three children, I am so excited to incorporate a family friendly event into the NowGen lineup of programs. The kickoff will be an event for everyone, with activities for children as well as singles and couples,” said Hoffer.

The event takes place in the outdoor space at Windgate Ranch, 10095 E, Windgate Ranch Road, Scottsdale. The event is free and open to the community.
