Designer Days benefits NCJW projects including the children's rooms in the courts, a safe, stress-free place for children to play while their parents attend to court business. Sally Wiggin was master of ceremonies, and those honored by the NCJW for their work included Cheryl Braver, Nancy Recht, Joan Reich, Lenore Schwartz, Marsha Stern and Rita Tauberg. Kiya Tomlin served as honorary chair, with Henry Krakovsky as event chair.
