CAHAL held its ninth annual fundraising concert on Sunday, March 10, at the newly renovated Lawrence High School. The concert featured some of the outstanding Jewish performers in the world today, Mordechai Shapiro, Pumpidisa and Shloime Dachs. The Shloime Dachs Orchestra, accompanied the performers and Krohma Music provided the sound engineering and special effects. The concert, CAHAL’s largest fundraising event of the year, was a sell-out, with nearly 800 people in attendance. A pre-concert buffet dinner was held for VIP Sponsors. All the Performers took time to chat and take pictures with the Sponsors and their children at the event. Main Event/Mauzone catered the dinner and Oma’s Sushi and Simply Sushi donated platters. Mrs. Brocha Silverstein, a local party planner, decorated the room beautifully.
Pumpidisa opened the show with their unique style, delightful voices and enthusiastic performance. Shloime Dachs followed with a selection of beautiful tunes, including some oldies that pleased everyone. The sold-out crowd came alive when Mordechai Shapiro began performing. His amazing range and vibrant personality electrified the audience.
