Hanukkah Party Advice


Even Cinderella and Prince Charming got nervous before the big bash, so it makes sense that every year before the Young Friends Hanukkah party, Regina Roper fields all sorts of calls from potential party goers asking for advice and a little nudge. So we asked her to blog today about the party.

Looking to meet your beshert? Want to get your dance on? All while supporting a great cause? The Hanukkah Party is the place to be. Here are a few answers to some frequently asked questions and if you don’t see your question below, feel free to contact Regina at (646) 437-4320 or rroper@mjhnyc.org. All calls are confidential.

What should I wear to the party?
The invitation says cocktail attire. That being said, wear whatever makes you feel good. Women mostly dress in cocktail dresses and heels, while the guys wear slacks and a button down. Some people come right from work so they are in suits or other business attire which is just fine. It is our gala event of the year, so dress to impress.

What is the age range of attendees?
The Young Friends are between the ages of 21 and 40. Our median age for attendees is probably somewhere around 30. However, there are always a handful of people on either side of the spectrum.

How many people come to the Hanukkah Party?
Last year we had a great crowd of almost 450 attendees.

What is the ratio of men to women?
As with most benefit events, there are always more women than men. We do our best to make sure there is a good mix and usually end up with about 60% women and 40% men.

What kind of food is served?
Each year we have an open bar and a full buffet spread (served by a Glatt Kosher certified caterer). This year the menu includes a latke bar, sliders and hot dogs, a variety of sandwiches and salads, desserts such as sufganiot and fruit, and much more.
