Family Match Consulting was proud to attend the Feit 4 Kidz 3rd Annual SOLD OUT Gala at the W Hotel in Hollywood on Saturday night. The Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Fund provides interest free loans of up to $15,000 to Jewish couples undergoing fertility treatments. The fund was made possible by the Jewish Free Loan Association (JFLA) and a generous donation from Emily and Alan Feit. Emily and Alan continues to generously donate their time, efforts, and money to make Feit 4 Kidz a possibility.
The night opened with a beautiful and touching speech made by Emily Dubin Field and her husband Gregg Field about their long journey going through infertility which ended with the birth of their daughter earlier this year, thanks to the help of their gestational surrogate. Emily and Gregg are just one of the many couples that the Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Fund has been able to help. In fact, since its inception, Fiet 4 Kidz has loaned out $874,000 to 52 different families and so far, 7 babies have been born with their assistance.
They hoped to raise $50,000 at the event but quickly raised the goal to $60,000 due to all the generous contributions that came pouring in. Emily and Alan announced that they would personally match whatever was raised and Alan's parents generously agreed to do the same. There was an impressive silent auction and comedian Jodi Miller from America's Got Talent performed a hilarious stand up routine about fertility. Attendees were loan recipients, those who fought and won the infertility battle, those still struggling, reproductive endocrinologists, surrogacy agencies, egg donor agencies, and many who have seen family members or friends struggle with infertility. So many people came together for different reasons to help raise money for this amazing cause.
Feit 4 Kidz made a very exciting announcement just days before the fundraiser. Starting January 2016, they will be offering loans for fertility treatments to ALL faiths! As they said in their announcement, "Infertility does not discriminate; neither do we."
