t was an evening of elegance with
cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and socializ-
ing at the Bloomfield Hills home of
Lauren and Phillip Fisher. There,
more than 85 young professionals came
together to carry on the Detroit Jewish com-
munity's heritage of giving.
The son and daughter-in-
law of the late philanthro-
pist and Jewish leader Max
Fisher opened their home
to some of the biggest
young adult contributors to
ROBIN
the Jewish Federation of
SCHWARTZ
Metropolitan Detroit's
COLUMNIST Annual Campaign.
"I can't thank you
enough for being here," said Phillip Fisher.
"You are our future leaders — take that and
run with it."

Federation included those who've made
individual campaign gifts of $3,000 or more
or family donations of $5,000 or more.
"It's really an honor for me to be standing
here with you," said YAD President Gayle
Gold of Huntington Woods. "We're literally
helping to secure the future of this commu-
nity."
The event helped jump-start the 2006
campaign by raising $368,000, a 25 percent
increase in donations from last year. The
under-40 crowd typically contributes about
$800,000 a year.
"There are so many incredible programs
that our dollars help," said Event Co-Chair
David Jacobson of Birmingham.
"Our donor population is aging," Phillip
Fisher said. "These types of events are criti-
cal to the future of the Jewish community in
Detroit."
During the event, the Fishers gave the
group an additional incentive to contribute.
