etroit came alive when JVS celebrated its 60th
anniversary Sept 14, at the 2002
Detroit Live Benefit fea-
turing entertainer Jay
Leno. Before the event, many of the
patrons mingled with Leno on the
mezzanine of the Fox Theatre. He
was accessible and friendly posing for
photos with guests.
"We're faced with many budget
cuts, and we wanted to do something
special for our 60th anniversary" said
Stacey Crane, JVS chairman.
JVS, which originally began as a Jewish
organization, helps people meet life chal-
lenges through support services. "JVS is a
hidden treasure and people discover it when
they need a job," said Carmen Harlen, WDIV-
TV4 anchor. Co-chair Dennis Bernard wel-
corned and addressed the crowd also. "We will
serve 22,000 people with dignity and compas-
sion," he added.
Leno made a surprise appearance before his
scheduled performance while co-chair Nate Forbes read the
raffle winners. Leno burst on stage accusing Forbes of being bor-
ing and then proceeded to read the winners adding some excite-
ment to the event. The scheduled performance opened with
Christopher and Side Kicks, who entertained the crowd with life
size puppets followed by Leno's lively performance. And his last
line was no joke: "God Bless Israel."
