The Denver Post Seen: Curtiss-Lusher, Zaitz honored at Faces of JFS Winter Soiree

The Faces of JFS fundraiser was featured in The Denver Post January 26, 2018:

Gay Curtiss-Lusher’s support of Jewish Family Service spans four decades. She served on its board of directors in the 1980s, helped resettle a Russian immigrant family, and served on numerous event committees.
