“Touching Tomorrow,” an event celebrating the volunteer organization Hadassah and honoring Dr. Bruce Feinberg, President/CEO of Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS), raised $268,000 on Sunday, September 25, 2005, at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta.
The event, which benefited cancer research at the Hadassah Medical Organization, recognized Dr. Feinberg as a nationally acclaimed oncologist and author.
“The amount of money raised at this event is overwhelming,” said Dr. Feinberg. “These funds will benefit an organization with a wonderful purpose.”
According to their web site, “Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, is a volunteer women’s organization, whose members are motivated and inspired to strengthen their partnership with Israel, ensure Jewish continuity, and realize their potential as a dynamic force in American society.”
The Hadassah Medical Organization has been nominated for a 2005 Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts in promoting peace in the Middle East.
