The Chai Society of Hadassah of Greater Philadelphia held its annual major gift fund raising event on Tuesday, October 25, at the prestigious Racquet Club in center city Philadelphia. In order to attend this event, guests had to make a minimum pledge of $1200 or a major gift. Seventy-three people attended to hear the guest speaker, Professor Charles Weissman, MD, Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Hadassah Medical Organization. He updated the audience on the most modern advances in his department and also gave a power point presentation showing the beautiful Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower. He emphasized that the hospital is being built with the patient in mind and encouraged everyone to come to Israel next year to share in its dedication. The evening was a huge success with $84,000 being pledged.
