2014 Heart & Soul Gala – Alice Cohn Z”L
March 12, 2014
Alice Cohn’s tradition of service inspired all who knew her. She spent her life giving back to the communities she called home and treated everyone she met as members of her beloved extended family. Alice’s own family began in Queens, New York, where she met her future husband, Phil. After marrying, the pair packed up and opened grocery stores in small towns across the Midwest, always remaining involved in the Jewish community. Today, the Cohn family leads the San Diego restaurant industry and exemplifies a commitment to feeding the hungry. From providing the Hand Up Youth Food Pantry with grocery gift cards to donating funds when the pantry runs low, their generosity has ensured that the most vulnerable among us have enough to eat.
