“Man Plans, G-d Laughs”Publication: Trevor Noah has unexpectedly and at the “eleventh hour” cancelled his performance at JFCS' Annual Benefit
We regret to share with you that Trevor Noah has unexpectedly and at the “eleventh hour” cancelled his performance with us.
Because we do not want to compromise the excellence of our Annual Benefit, we made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. It is extremely disappointing for us to cancel an event that represents a 34-year tradition for our agency, and more importantly, serves as our premier annual fundraising effort to raise much-needed dollars to assist over 25,000 vulnerable members of the community.
We want to emphasize that we will not allow this setback to deter us from our mission and commitment to those we serve. Too many people depend on us to be there during challenging times. Indeed, we will continue to support them in all the capacities we do now.
As the Yiddish proverb, Man Plans, G-d Laughs, so aptly conveys, this turn of events was, sadly, out of our control. Please accept our sincere apology for any inconvenience and disappointment this has caused.
