Our President & Officers
A Message from President David A. Simon
Golden Slipper Club & Charities is a social group of men and women involved in a charitable organization doing good deeds for children and older adults. We were founded by a group of Jewish Masons who got together socially and took some of the pot from their weekly card games to donate to charity. Today, we have built upon the Founders Vision and improved it.
We operate a Camp in the Poconos which enriches the lives of deserving children and young adults since 1948; today we have added a scholarship Committee that hands out scholarships to students entering, or are in, college. Recipients include former Golden Slipper campers.
In 1995, we opened The Golden Slipper Center for Seniors, a traditional senior center. Today, while we no longer serve that location, our reach is far more expansive serving older adults at eight locations throughout the Delaware Valley. In 2018, we changed our name to Golden Slipper Gems to better reflect our growing organization that includes hosting the largest Passover Seder in the Greater Philadelphia area, serving over 450 seniors and The HUNAS (Human Needs and Services) Committee through which we provide financial support to help people with basic needs.
I am heart warmed every time I visit one of our senior locations, look at the smiling faces at the annual Passover Seder and go up to see the incredible joy of our campers in the summer. All of these experiences and those experiencing them comes directly from your tax-deductible support and our members. Critically needed dollars raised from these events are used to provide for our kids and seniors and we have fun getting together through our social activities. If you have suggestions or ideas for our events or your Club, Camp & Gems, please let us know.
Stay tuned for our Centennial Jubilee in May, 2022!
David A. Simon
