he Southfield-based National
Council of Jewish Women
cooked up a clever way to raise
money for community service projects.
They invited more than a dozen Metro
Detroit chefs and caterers to prepare
delicious dishes for a patron event called
Delightful Diversions, an evening of food,
wine, fundraising and friends held at the
brand-new Designs
Unlimited Showroom
in Birmingham.
More than 130
people attended the
May 14 event, which
also doubled as a grand
opening for the design-
er kitchen retailer in its
new location.
"We had everything
from hors d'oeuvres
to desserts:' said Jain Lauter of West
Bloomfield. She co-chaired the event
with Nancy Josephson, also of West
Bloomfield. "There were mushroom cana-
pes, spinach pies, salads, chicken risotto,
and pastas. Then we had cupcakes, choco-
lates and individual key lime pies."
The second annual event helped raise
more than $30,000 for the NCJW's pro-
grams aimed at improving the lives of
local women, children and families. The
volunteer organization oversees the area's
only kosher Meals on Wheels program.
They're also responsible for developing
a handicapped accessible playground at

Hess-Hathaway Park in Waterford where
a new maze for the children will be dedi-
cated in June.
"I believe in what we do, and I like
that we're in the general community','
said NCJW president Sharon Lipton of
Waterford. "We affect lives and social
change through advocacy and community
