An October 6, a Centennial Keepers donor recognition luncheon at the Israeli Consulate in New York City had an enthusiastic, standing room only, audience of over 75. It was a joint event of the New York, Westchester and Connecticut Regions. National President Marcie Natan was there, along with New York Region President Ruth Gursky; Westchester Region President Phyllis Hartstein; and Connecticut Region President Connie Cirillo Freeman.
Three weeks later, on October 30, Amb. Aharoni and the Brooklyn Region's Keepers and Major Donors met at the Consul General's residence. Brooklyn Region President Gail Hammerman welcomed guests, who also heard updates on Hadassah and the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower by National President Marcie Natan, and news about the Centennial Convention in Israel in October 2012 from past National President and Centennial Co-chair Marlene Post. The event raised over $40,000. To cap off the day, Amb. Aharoni became an official Hadassah Associate.
