Chai Lifeline Gala Proves “Together We Are Stronger”

New York—Over 1,100 friends and supporters are expected to crowd the ballroom of the Marriott Marquis on December 9 to laud Chai Lifeline, the international children’s health network that provides emotional and social support to more than 4,300 children and their families every year. Inspirational speaker and radio host Charlie Harary will act as Master of Ceremonies.

Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Mark R. Sultan, MD FACS will receive the organization’s prestigious Chai Heritage Award. Dr. Steven M. Altschuler, the chief executive officer of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will receive the Maimonides Medical Achievement Award.

Rena Rosenberg, a principal at McKinsey & Co. and a partner in its Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices practice, is this year’s Vision of Hope Honoree. Chai Lifeline parents Jeff and Amy Becker will receive the Pillar of Courage Award in recognition of their family’s years of battle against daughter Sydney’s cancer diagnosis. Former Camp Simcha staff member Nachman Calko and his wife, Esti, and Moshe Reiss, whose involvement with Camp Simcha spans more than a decade and a half, will share the Camp Simcha Appreciation Award.

Chai Lifeline’s 2014 Annual Gala takes place on Tuesday, December 9 at the Marriott Marquis in New York. For reservations and to place ads in the commemorative journal, visit www.chaidinner.org or call 212-699-6658.
