Mom-Bassador
The Drew Greenberg Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Greenberg family from Roslyn, New York, celebrated their son Drew’s Bar Mitzvah on May 30, 2013, at Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn Heights, New York. The party was the following day at the Village Club at Sands Point, in Sands Point, New York.

Mom Amy is an event planner for Bon Chic Events and this family is all about creativity. After she planned daughter Hannah’s carnival themed party, also featured on Mitzvah Market, she went right into planning Drew’s less formal kids party with a Hawaiian luau theme.

“Just Drew It” shirts worn by the MC and dancers were created by Drew and Spectrum Designs Foundation, a Port Washington, New York, based company that only employs teens and individuals with Autism. Drew’s sister has autism and the family is very involved with supporting the Autism population. Drew’s other Mitzvah Project involved working with his sister and other children with Autism on Saturday mornings at a special needs soccer program.

Advice from Mom Amy:
“Don’t be afraid to think out of the box when it comes to decorating and entertainment. Rely on experienced vendors to help make your party a success and involve your child in the planning process.”
