Bunny is an active member of the Federation’s Board of Directors, as well as past co-chair of the Women’s Division and past Vice President of Programming. She  has chaired many Federation programs and events including the Lion of Judah Luncheon, Women’s Passover Celebration, Book Festival and the first ever Purim Masquerade Ball, held in March 2014. She was the 2010 recipient of Federation’s Women of Valor Award. We are thrilled to officially announce that Bunny has been selected as our Federation’s nominee for the Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award, which will be presented at the International Lion of Judah Conference in NYC in September.

Among her many community involvements, Bunny is a member of the Board of Directors of the Glasser-Schoenbaum Human Services Center and has co-chaired its gala. A member of its Maestro Society, the Sarasota Orchestra honored her as a “Leading Lady” and she has co-chaired its gala and brunch.

Bunny founded Compeer, Inc. an international non-profit organization that helps adults and children in mental health treatment in recovery through the healing power of supportive friendships in 1976.  She was the Executive Director until 2004 and presently serves on the national board.

For these reasons and many more, we thrilled to honor Bunny as our Mensch of the Month for April!
