JFS of the Desert Patron Party
The Eleventh Annual Patrons Party for Jewish Family Services of the Desert was held at the residence of Donna McMillan at the Vintage in Indian Wells on December 9. This is a rare image of two London ladies now residing in the Rancho Mirage community. Helen Varon and Helene Galen were raised in the same Jewish neighborhood in London in the 1930s and 1940s, and they are now neighbors here. Both women are known for their philanthropic commitment to Jewish organizations in the desert.
