Annual Women’s event will exude love and laughter

Talia Reese Talia Reese It will be double LOLs when the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties holds its 15th annual Women of Distinction ceremony on Sunday, April 30 at 2 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.

There will be Laughing Out Loud LOLs with an up and coming Jewish comedienne and Love Our Ladies LOLs when the Federation celebrates the outstanding dedication and leadership of female volunteers within the Jewish community.

Women from 25 Jewish organizations in Pinellas and Pasco counties will be honored for their leadership and celebrated at a reception in the Margarete Heye Great Room at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

Event committee members Katie Blaxberg, Linda Goldman, Chaya Korf and Becca Tieder are planning an evening worthy of the distinguished honorees and lots of belly laughs. “Nothing brings us together better than laughter, so we wanted to create an environment where we can celebrate each other and have a lot of fun,” said Tieder.

The entertainment this year will be comic Talia Reese.

As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and (“moral”) bankruptcy lawyer, Reese’s journey to embrace her true love, comedy, is fascinating. Her set is high-energy and autobiographical. Good Times Magazine recently described her as “one of the best of the new breed of East Coast comics.” Her affable stage presence and sharp wit have garnered her appearances on The Wendy Williams Show, Spike TV and Lifetime Network. Newsday Long Island has also taken notice, calling her a “rising star” and most recently The New York Post called her a “Hot Ticket,” featuring a nearly full-page article about her life and her comedy. with entities such as Jewniverse, Jewish Voice NY, and others covering her comedy career

Reese just completed a six-day residency at the Borgata in Atlantic City, and continues to be a constant presence in New York’s top clubs, as well as being sought after for Jewish events.

Tickets are $36 a person. There will be refreshments and a nosh after the show. Kosher laws will be observed.

For more information about the event and for tribute and sponsorship opportunities, contact Elana Gootson at or call the Federation office at (727) 530-3223.
