Women of Achievement Cocktails in the Garden — April 23, 2023

On Sunday, April 23, 2023, over 200 people gathered in the garden of a beautiful home in Bel Air Crest, for American Friends of Sheba Medical Center Cocktails in the Garden honoring Women of Achievement, Chara Schreyer Z”L and Dr. Yael Peled, Medical Director of the Heart Transplantation Unit at Sheba.

Thanks to the generosity of our guests, we raised over $350,000 to secure a device that will keep a donor heart beating before transplantation while doctors’ asses if the heart is a good match. Sheba Medical Center will then be able to save more hearts and more lives.
