More than $2 million for the economic development of Israel was raised as a result of a fashion show by Israeli designers sponsored by the Greater New York Women’s Division of State of Israel Bonds in the New York Hilton. The high fashion event Thursday was part of an intensive worldwide campaign to sell $1 billion worth of Israel Bonds in 1974 to assist the reconstruction and development of Israel’s economy, which was dislocated by the Yom Kippur War. Reservations to the show and luncheon, which featured women prominent as entertainers and leaders in social affairs as models, were by a minimum purchase of $1000 in Israel Bonds.
