Download PDF for this date

Arrangements have been made for the holding of a dinner to raise $100,000 for the Home of the Daughters of Jacob. The dinner will be held at the Hotel Astor on Tuesday evening, December 11, and one thousand diners, paying $100 per plate, are expected to be present. The dinner committee is headed by Philip Weinstein.

The sum of $100,000 will be applied towards the $300,000 annual budget which is required for the maintenance of the Home. The balance is obtained by the institution through special gifts, voluntary contributions, and membership dues. The institution, which is located at 167th Street and Findlay Avenue, New York, is now caring for 500 aged men and women 200 of whom are patients confined in the hospital wards of the Home. Mrs. Peter Schweitzer is president.
