Broadway, Chicago is the longest-running American musical
in history! Other Broadway credits include Zorba, My One
& Only, Falsettos, Grease, Wonderful Town, Sweet Charity,
and the Scottsboro Boys. Fran and Barry have produced
over 30 Broadway shows, including their newest Broadway
hit, Waitress, a musical adaptation of Adrienne Shelly’s
2007 independent film favorite, with an original score by
Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Sara Bareilles.

The Weekend Pantry Feeds Hungry Children
The average age of a homeless child in Palm Beach
County is seven years old. NCJW’s newest initiative,
Weekend Pantry, provides hungry children in Title 1
schools with nutritious food for the weekend, when they
may have none. By providing these children with
healthy meals at the end of each week we help to better
prepare them for school Monday morning.

NCJW’s Kids Community Closet provides emergency
