The Jewish National Fund is excited to be hosting the 4th annual JNF Future Party, taking place on October 19, 2013 at Zero Gravity Circus near Bloor and Landsdowne in the Junction. The theme for this year’s Future Party is Throwback Prom, or Jprom.

Guests can expect a fabulous night as they relive their great Prom memories, and those who didn’t get a chance to attend the first time around can enjoy a night of revelry, spiked punch and more.

"This party is important for JNF because it allows the younger generation to get involved and give back. We are the future of JNF," said JPROM co-chair, Sandra Vadasz. "I get to be involved in my community, meet young Jewish professionals and give back to Israel. With a retro prom theme, amazing food and a live band we are counting down the days to this event."

This year’s Future Party proceeds will help renovate the yards of the Ilanot Special Education School in Jerusalem, to meet safety and accessibility standards. Ilanot is a public school serving about 70 students, ages 6–21, with severe motor and cognitive disabilities. The facilities at the Ilanot School are located in southern Jerusalem and the student body make up of individuals from both the Jewish and Arab communities.

The past three Future Parties had well over 500 attendees, and this year is expected to grow even further. Jprom will feature live music performed in a venue not unlike a high school gym, and corsages are strongly encouraged.
