It was an evening of cocktails, dinner, dancing, and celebration at the Beth Israel 2013 Second Century Ball, held on Wednesday, November 13, at the Waldorf Astoria New York. More than 850 leaders, physicians, nurses, staff, and friends of the Beth Israel Medical Center gathered to support Beth Israel’s innovative clinical, research, and educational programs. The event raised $1.75 million to expand those initiatives and train the next generation of physicians. Beth Israel Medical Center Trustee Frank J. Bisignano and his wife, Tracy, served as this year’s Dinner Chairs.
Designer Pamella Roland’s spring 2013 collection took center stage in December at The Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Second Annual Women’s Health Fashion Show and Luncheon at The Waldorf=Astoria. The models wore jewelry provided by Chopard, and more than 500 guests enjoyed a luncheon menu selected by chef Mario Batali.
The event raised more than $450,000, which will be used to raise awareness about the importance of primary care in the prevention and detection of women’s medical issues, fund research on reproductive cancers, educate women about heart health, and investigate the relationship between gender differences and the environment.
