Hundreds of participants attended the annual fundraising event of Friends of Schneider Children’s called “Blocks Build Life”, which was held recently at Tel Aviv’s Old Port. Media personality Tal Berman volunteered to MC the event which included a performance by popular singer, Shlomi Shabbat. All proceeds were dedicated towards the establishment of a new hospital building alongside the existing hospital complex.
In the entrance lobby to the hall, a display of 7 blocks, representing the 7 floors of the planned new building, was prepared by artists as their expression of “life building blocks” and placed alongside blocks created by children in the care of Schneider Children’s.
Participants included members of hospital management, public and business personalities, among them, Ronen Tov, Chair of the Executive Committee of Friends of Schneider Children’s, Prof. Joseph Press, Director of Schneider Children’s, Yonel and Nurit Cohen, Anat Levin, Mody Kidon, Dani and Tzila Naveh, and more.
