To raise funds for the Hadassah medical organization in Palestine a series of “donor” luncheons will be held in 250 cities of the United States beginning January 25 and ending April 25, Mrs. Max A. Slavin, national fund-raising chairman of the group, announced yesterday.
It was estimated that more than 25,000 women enrolled in Hadassah chapters throughout the country will attend these luncheons.
The “donor” luncheons, it was stated, are the most popular means of raising assigned quotas and are community affairs for which each member earns or contributes her donation. Prices for the affairs range from $5 to $30 a plate.
“Hospitals owned or subsidized by Hadassah in Palestine, the clinics in urban and rural centers and the Straus health centers are maintained by money raised here,” Mrs. Slavin said.
“The increased demands on all of the Hadassah service due to the unprecedented increase in immigration, have given a greater responsibility to the American Jewish women interested in the up-building of Palestine.”
