Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte hosts Super Sunday fundraiser

In an effort to strengthen and unite the local Jewish community, the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte hosted its annual Super Sunday phone-a-thon fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sam Lerner Center in Shalom Park.

The group gathered about 100 volunteers to man the phones for this year’s ‘Rock n’ Roll’ themed Super Sunday, with hopes of topping last year’s record of raising a whopping $5 million.

Money raised at the Super Sunday events will go to more than 70 of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte’s different agencies, programs, and incentives to strengthen Charlotte’s Jewish community. Additional donations will be used for four new 2023 community initiatives: Outshine Hate, Safety and Security, Jewish Identity, and Center for Jewish Education Capital Improvements.

Kara Culp, the co-chair of Super Sunday, told Channel 9 one of her favorite things about the event is getting to know so many different people throughout the community.

“It’s just a great opportunity to meet some of our community members, hear them talking about their why to donors on the phone, and getting to hear some donor conversations on why they’re donating,” Culp said.
