Hadassah Giving Luncheon 4-24-14

Hadassah Annual Giving Luncheon was held on Thursday, April 24th, at Kenwood Country Club in Madeira. This is Hadassah's major fundraising campaign to contribute to the growth of our hospitals in Israel and other vital projects that benefit people around the globe. Registration will open at 11 am, during which a variety of boutique items and Hadassah cards may be purchased. Our honoree this year was Allison Frankel, our chapter treasurer for the past 18 years. Mezzo soprano LeeAnne Galioto, accompanied by pianist Claire Lee, provided "Musical Moments" with three songs by George Gershwin: "The Man I Love", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "I Got Rhythm".
