Former Temple Beth Israel "Reverse Draw" dinner to benefit Mount St. Mary's Hospital

The Mount St. Mary's Hospital Foundation will hold its second annual "Reverse Draw" Fundraiser on Wednesday, May 9, at The Como Restaurant, 2220 Pine Ave., Niagara Falls. The event is the continuation of an event that, for 34 years, was conducted by Temple Beth Israel. Last year, the leadership of the temple bestowed the fundraiser to Mount St. Mary's.

The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with the program at 7 p.m. and dinner to follow. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit The Center for Women at Mount St. Mary's Hospital, a one-stop health care facility for women of all ages.

This year, Mount St. Mary's is honoring the chairmen of the annual Mount St. Mary's Women's Healthcare Conference; The Niagara University women's hockey, softball and soccer teams; and two choral directors and one volunteer for their work to benefit Mount St. Mary's Breast Care Center.

Jerald I. Wolfgang, the original founder of the event when it was conducted by Temple Beth Israel, continues as chairman.

Tickets are $50 each and only 300 will be sold. For tickets and more information, call the Mount St. Mary's Foundation at 716-298-2143. Contributions to the Mount St. Mary's Foundation are tax deductible.
