During that affair, much of the talk centered around the myriad of JOBC activities that are almost upon us. In fact, the JOBC’s annual fundraiser with a theme of “Beach Blanket Bingo” and chaired this year by Cecilia Dubon Slesnick, will be held October 2, at Miami Rowing Club. Executive Director Mark Pidal noted that it is not too late to donate auction items or to become a sponsor for that event.
