Don't get excited. You are NOT invited to Menorah Manor's 2018 Non-Event!

This year, you don't have to purchase a dress, pay a babysitter or pet-sitter, purchase auction items that you don't really want, rent a tux, wear uncomfortable heels or spend too much money on gas.

Instead, you get to stay home, put your feet up, and be a couch potato!
