Honor Society Virtual Event

Date: Sunday, January 3, 2021

The Vera and Chaim Weizmann Honor Society hosted its first virtual event. About 70 Weizmann friends from across the country tuned in, including Honor Society members as well as loyal donors who have made annual gifts over many years. The event began with three moving testimonials from Honor Society members Ruth Yancovich of Hartford, CT, Raymond Shwake of Washington, D.C., and Marie and Leo Gosser of Parkland, FL, who shared why they decided to make Weizmann part of their lasting legacies. Executive Committee member and Honor Society Co-Founder Alan Fischer offered greetings before introducing American Committee CEO Dave Doneson and Vice President of Personalized Philanthropy Stacy Sulman.


Ms. Sulman moderated a discussion with Mr. Doneson about the Weizmann Institute’s latest breakthroughs and collaborations, its remarkable response to COVID-19, and more. Members of the audience took part in the conversation through an interactive Q&A. Participants appreciated the opportunity to connect and learn more about the impact of their support.
