2023 - BIG NIGHT HOLLYWOOD

Chairs: Leonard Silk, Andrew Stewart, Bev and Zack Block

Lights, camera, action–JCC Productions Presents Big Night: HOLLYWOOD!

The JCC’s 17th Annual Big Night will premiere on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at the JCC’s Squirrel Hill Studios.
Big Night Hollywood will be an over-the-top extravaganza, live and in person. Everyone will be a star in this larger-than-life production. You’ll walk the red carpet and pose for glamorous photo ops, converging on the set in the Squirrel Hill Studios for dinner and dancing.

Big Night Hollywood is the top box office opportunity to support the JCC—the center of the community. Big Night is the JCC’s biggest fundraising event, and this year’s event is key to sustaining the rebound from nearly 3 years of operations that have been dramatically impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. With the dedicated support of friends, community leaders, philanthropists, corporations, business executives and JCC members, funds raised through Big Night enable individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, religions and financial need to participate in the JCC’s quality programs and services.

You can take top billing with your support through a corporate or individual sponsorship. We’ll make sure to embed your star on the Big Night Walk of Fame!

2022 - The Roaring 20s

Chairs: Marcie and Matthew Weinstein, Sam and Josh Klein

Recognizing the unpredictable path of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current spike in active cases, we have made the decision to cancel the raffle and the in-person portion of the 16th Annual Big Night, The Roaring 20s, co-chaired by Marcie and Matthew Weinstein and Sam and Josh Klein and planned for March 5.

However, the JCC is not cancelling Big Night but plans to create a celebration to thank donors and will continue to run the Auction.

Big Night is a swell opportunity to support the JCC—the center of the community. Big Night is the JCC’s biggest fundraising event, and this year’s event is especially important in helping the JCC to rebuild. With the dedicated support of friends, community leaders, philanthropists, corporations, business executives and JCC
members, Big Night is key in sustaining the JCC and enabling individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, religions and financial need to participate in the JCC’s quality programs and services.

2017 - big night big prom

Honoring Mardi and Bill Isler

Chairs: Carole & Jerry Katz and Lauren & Scott Americus

Be Our Date for the JCC’s 11th Annual Party with a Purpose
Whether you went to your high school prom or wish you had, this is your big chance for a prom re-do. Bring that special someone, come stag or with a bunch of friends. Dust off your tux; squeeze into your old prom dress, show your school spirit with a varsity jacket or simply come as you are. Updo or no-do, it’s up to you.

You’ll dance the night away to music by the best DJ in town and chow down on every munchie you can dream of. Oh yes, our chaperones won’t bust you for drinking the “punch” or at the After Party in the parents’ basement.

This year, we’re thrilled to honor Mardi and Bill Isler. Mardi has been a consultant to the JCC on early childhood and after-school programs. Bill, who serves on the JCC board, is CEO of the Fred Rogers Company and a longtime educator. Their passion for improving the lives of children makes our community a better place. Big Night is the JCC’s premier fundraising event, serving as both a celebration and as a chance to recognize the community’s support for the JCC through the JCC Annual Fund, which provides scholarships that enable individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, religious affiliations and financial need to participate in the JCC’s quality programs and services.

2015 - HIDDEN GEMS OF THE JCC

Chairs: Erica and Billy Goodman & Traci and Brian Lamfrom

Discover the hidden treasures of the JCC at our ninth annual Big Night fundraiser. We’ll send thrills down your spine with wild dancing, exotic dining and encounters with things strange and surprising.

2014 - BIG NIGHT GAME ON

JCC Big Night: Game On, our eighth annual Big Night fundraiser, celebrates the JCC’s important role as a community resource—a gamechanger in the lives of children. Honoring the child in all of us, Game On will be more fun than a Barrel Of Monkeys—filled with music, dancing and enough food to feed the Hungry, Hungry Hippos. As we celebrate our community, we’ll be supporting the JCC’s Annual Fund, which provides scholarships that enable children of all ages to participate in vital programs at the JCC.
Lead Sponsor: PNC Bank
Attire: Roll of the Dice

2011 - PEACE, LOVE AND THE IKC’S

The JCC of Greater Pittsburgh presents its fifth annual Big Night: Peace, Love & the IKCs, at the Irene Kaufmann Building in Squirrel Hill. Peace, Love & the IKCs fondly recalls the outta sight times of the IKCs (nickname for the Irene Kaufmann Center, the predecessor to the JCC) from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.

This shindig will be the grooviest scene ever, with a DJ spinning tunes, far out food, mellow coffee house, and a silent auction. Music lovers can get down at a late-night Woodstock-style benefit concert by Pittsburgh jam band, Rusted Root.
