Funds to go toward the building fund of the Maimonides Hospital at Liberty, New York, will be raised at a benefit performance to be given Sunday evening, April 21, at the Jolson Theatre.

The Maimonides Hospital is a general non-sectarian hospital sponsored by the Maimonides Lodge of the Independent Order B’nai B’rith, and is maintained by the memberships of both the lodge and the hospital, as well as by general contributions. The hospital is the only one in that section of the State, and it has proved the only means of rendering medical aid and treatment not only to those whose homes are in Liberty and the immediate countryside, but to those in villages and hamlets distantly removed. Within the last few years it has outgrown its present building facilities and there is an urgent need for new and larger quarters.

Maurice Bloch, minority leader of the New York State Assembly, and president of District No. 1, Independent Order B’nai B’rith, is personally interested in the institution, and is directing the arrangements for the performance.

Loney Haskell will be master of ceremonies and among those who will appear are Phil Baker, George Jessel, Shaw and Lee, Aileen Stanley, Jack Wilson, Johnny Walker and Ben Bernie.
