The LeadOhr Young Professionals Committee put on another sold-out, dazzling event in the heart of New York City. The fundraiser for Migdal Ohr at Tempura NYC Rooftop Bar sold out with 214 people in attendance and a waitlist to get in! 

We want to give a huge shout-out to the amazing committee that worked so hard to promote the event and bring their friends. Nearly half of the attendees were new faces who had never been to a Migdal Ohr event before! 

The group raised $31,972 for orphaned and neglected children at Migdal Ohr and many made pledges on our “Tree of Life” for things like backpacks, doctor's visits, healthy meals, and many other practical things that children need as they grow up. 

The evening featured a delicious meat, sushi, and pass-around menu as well as a premium bar, photo booth, and DJ. Mentalist Gary Ferrar was walking around entertaining guests throughout the night!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to make Summer Lights so special and to the inspiring LeadOhr committee! May you go from strength to strength and continue helping more people get involved in creating a stronger, brighter future for Israel.
