On Wednesday, June 11th, 2014, JNF Montreal held its annual Negev Dinner in honour of the Partners and Employees of Richter for their true dedication to tikkun olam and corporate social responsibility.

Proceeds raised from the 2014 Negev Dinner will be directed towards establishing two therapeutic facilities for vulnerable children in Israel.

In Holon, Richter and JNF will co-develop a therapeutic courtyard to benefit the internationally renowned Save A Child’s Heart program at the new Wolfson Medical Center. Considered the “lungs” of the facility, the courtyard promises to be a tranquil place for patients to recuperate from their procedures.

In the Negev region’s capital city of Be’er Sheva, we will create a modern, adapted schoolyard for Arab, Bedouin, and Jewish Israeli children with special needs at the Ilanot elementary school. Once completed, these students will be provided with a stimulating environment for developing their motor and cognitive skills while also fostering emotional growth.

Thank you to all of those who supported and attended the event.
