1. EVENT RECAP
Einstein Visionaries Society Luncheon
On Thursday, September 13, 2018, AFHU’s Northeast Region hosted its fourth annual Planned Giving appreciation luncheon at The Penn Club in New York City. Fifty guests from the surrounding metropolitan area attended the event.
Lee Shmulevitz, a Hebrew University student ambassador and luncheon guest speaker, recounted her combat experiences while serving in the military. She also thanked everyone for generously supporting the Hebrew University so that she and “her fellow students could receive an amazing education.”
The program continued with award presentations to new members of the Einstein Visionary Society, and recognized individuals who reached milestone giving levels. Planned giving expert Neal Myerberg also spoke briefly, highlighting that while legacy gift donors receive a steady generous income stream and tax advantages–legacy gifts, at the core–are gifts from the heart.
A thank you also went out to the luncheon’s co-sponsor, PNC Bank.
