We got to help design a once in a lifetime gala event to benefit Israel’s soldiers. The Friends of the Israel Defense Forces Western Region Chapter held the benefit at the Los Angeles Hyatt Regency Ballroom was sold out! Barbra Streisand, David Foster and Jason Alexander entertained over 1,200 people and helped to earn more than $2.5 million! The money donated will go to support a variety of programs to help Israeli soldiers.

The program included a speech by Sergeant Elan Lubliner, cousin of American journalist Daniel Pearl; a female pilot serving in the Israeli Air Force, and Israeli heroes Ron Weinreich and U.S. Sergeant Edward Schrank. After dinner, the master of ceremonies, Jason Alexander led the evenings amazing entertainment by David Foster, Ron Weinreich, Nita Whitaker, Cody Karey, Michael W. Smith and Barbra Streisand. Streisand sang “The Windmills of your Mind,” “People,” and “The Way We Were,” backed by a full choir. She ended the night with a performance of the traditional Jewish prayer “Avinu Malkeinu.”
