Sheba Medical Center gathered to celebrate 50 years of excellence in gynecology and maternity care at its annual Sheba Gala Dinner in Tel Aviv in June 2017.
Under a beautiful spring evening sky, guests of the annual gala mingled with Sheba Medical Center’s doctors and executives to celebrate the accomplishments of the Josef Buchmann Gynecology and Maternity Center, including the “birth” of its new cutting-edge neonatal unit.
The dinner, which took place in the hospital’s expansive southern park, broke records in both attendance and philanthropy, with over one thousand attendees.
Vered Greenboim, who chairs the Israeli Friends of Sheba, said, “The magnificent donations truly excite me each and every year and the growing number of participants and their generous hearts are never, ever to be taken for granted. Therefore, I must thank every one of our friends for their support and faith in what we do, year after year.”
This year two of the hospital’s most renowned and dedicated families, Lev and Mrs. Olga Leviev and David and Galia Arbov, were recognized with Certificates of Honor, presented to them at the lavish event.
Avid supporters, including Health Minister, Rabbi Yaakov Litzman and Mrs. Galia Maor as well as a mélange of celebrities from the business, medical, political and entertainment spheres, were entertained by an array of top Israeli entertainers including superstar singer, Yuval Dayan, and comedians Adir Miller and Orna Banai.
Professor Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of the Sheba Medical Center, noted, “The ability to think outside the box and push the boundaries even when things look almost impossible and find logical solutions to acute medical issues is what has transformed Sheba into a truly unique hospital in the region. The dedication of our supporters will enable Sheba to fulfill its vision of becoming the leading medical facility and hospital in the nation during the next decade.”
