Baltimore, MD - Feb. 16, 2016 - The Bais Yaakov School Rabbi Benjamin Steinberg Middle School Dolphin Club BY KIDZ 4 KIDZ Chinese Auction is back once again for its 4th extravaganza. The phenomenal success of the past three auctions has inspired this years group of 8 Dolphin Club members to recreate the upcoming event.

These clubs were named for the dolphin, a animal that always seems to smile and is scientifically known for its ability to help others. These groups sponsored by the Maryland Counseling Network are a "fantastic way for the girls to learn to handle social interactions, conflict resolution and develop team building skills says Rabbi Hochberg Director. "The girls finish the program with an incredible sense of accomplishment and the skills to work well with others", says Leeba Braun who has been spearheading these groups for more then a decade with endless passion, commitment and a wealth of innovative ideas.

The real heroines and hostesses of the upcoming auction, are a group of eight volunteers from the six grade. They meet every Monday to organize, advertise, prioritize and produce this exciting event.

The Dolphin Club girls in the past have helped orphans, children with down syndrome, children sick in the hospital, Simchas  Esther,  Hatzalah, Bikur Cholim and more. 

This year the girls decided to raise money on behalf of Lev Lalev, an orphanage founded by the late revered Klausenberg Rebbe 54 years ago in Eretz Yisroel. They want to do something for their "sisters" in Eretz Yisroel, who don't have as much as they do. 


Lev Lalev enables orphaned and disadvantaged girls in Israel to grow past their traumatic histories and develop into well-adjusted, self-sufficient and productive citizens. Click on the link to read about the history of the Childrens Home.

May this year's event be an aliyas neshama for our beloved and very missed Mrs. Laure Gutman and Mrs. Elky Kleiner, who were proud of their Middle School girls and their accomplishments and showed an interest in the Dolphin Club since its inception. 

This year's auction promises to be exciting, with more then 120 prizes for children ages 5 to 15, including a 24 inch trek bike, electric scooter, karaoke machine, keyboard, American girl doll, mini drone, electronics, jewelry and more. 

Refreshments will be sold including  "cookie grams" and make your own ice cream sundaes. A free toy will be given to the first 50 "smiling faces" to arrive at the event. Additionally every 15 minutes there will be a "happy face giveaway". Come  greet and take a picture with Dougie The Dolphin Club mascot. 


The auction will take place on Sunday, February 26 from 12:30 to 5 (viewing - 12:30 to 4 /drawing - 4 to 5) at the Bais Yaakov School Rabbi Benjamin Steinberg Middle School gym. It promises to be a family- friendly, fun- day , for parents and children (girls all ages ; boys 10 and under).
