On Sunday 29 May 2016 the Western Australia Hadassah Committee held their Annual Fundraising Dinner at the Jewish Centre in Perth. Professor Vernon Van Heerdon was the keynote speaker, with a special video message recorded by Dr Esti Galili. It was a wonderful night, attended by approximately 165 people. Also in attendance was His Excellency Ambassador to Australia, Shmuel-Ben-Shmuel.

After a hiatus of 18 months, the dinner was very well received by the Perth community.They understand that their gifts make a difference, and continue to donate generously to Hadassah.  All funds will be used to support the Jerusalem Crisis Intervention Centre (JCIC).

A special thanks for the Western Australia committee, led by Linton Sharp, for the outstanding effort that went into the organisation and delivery of the event.
