Welcome to CHW Montreal
CHW Montreal President, Alicia Epstein
Over the past six months, our Centre has been very busy with programming events and community outreach.
In May, CHW Montreal Centre hosted a Major Supporters event in conjunction with the 2019 Annual Campaign. The evening was a true success, from the warm welcome of our hosts Sarah and Gary Hutman, to our very special guest speaker, Galia Alef, the Director of CHW Nahalal Youth Village. She is a class act who charmed us all that evening. I know that the children of this youth village are in very capable hands with Galia at the helm. The evening was topped off with a dedication to Roslyn Joseph for her very generous gift to the CHW Neri Bloomfield Academy of Design.
The amazing women from the Anna Zaitchick Chapter hosted their 8th Annual CHW Walk to Support Children on May 26. They took part in three of my favorite activities: walking, eating, and raising funds for CHW. Great work!!
In July, Mother Nature could not rain on our parade. Even though the weather did not cooperate for the 45th Annual Pro-Am For Kids golf tournament, the outcome was a success for both CHW and Camp Erin. Joseph Balinsky, Gary Hutman, and Danny Kaufer once again did an outstanding job as co-chairs.
Our goal of connecting CHW with youth in Montreal was realized when the Y Country Camp Junior CITs visited CHW’s Clara Balinsky (Montreal) Daycare in Israel this summer. The CITs were able to see, first-hand, how CHW volunteer efforts and fundraising impact our projects in Israel.
The CHW Tel Hai Bridge, Mahjong & Canasta Luncheon had a record attendance of 300 people. The dynamic event co-chairs, Carol Seltzer and Jackie Sheiner, were joined this year by Alana Shiveck and Lianne Routtenberg who did an excellent job bringing in new Mahjong participants.
We are so excited about our fall fundraisers including the Rosh Hashanah Chocolate Tins which were a sold out success, the Nurses’ Council members who put together an amazing program on Medical Cannabis, and Beauty School 101, spearheaded by Naomi Berkovic Kincler and Julie Marcus. Finally, we look forward to our fabulous Annual Art Auction with this year’s honoree, John Barkley.
May this be a year of peace, health, and prosperity.
Wishing you all a Shana Tovah Umetukah – A Good and Sweet New Year.
