Hadassah United Kingdom: Casino Royale in the Kingdom
Hadassah United Kingdom’s Parkinson Committee (PATH--Parkinson's At The Hadassah) sponsored a Casino Royale at a beautiful hotel overlooking the River Thames in London. About 350 people attended the event where Dr. Zvi Israel of Hadassah’s Department of Neurosurgery was the honored guest and more than $200,000 was raised to support his research into Parkinson’s disease at the Hadassah Medical Center. An advertising brochure was instrumental in generating the funds.
Guests enjoyed gaming tables, magicians, and car racing, with live Formula One commentary, as well as a lavish banquet and live band.
