story about the event:

Three pillars of the New York dental community —Dr. Allen FinkelsteinDr. Rada Sumareva, and George Wolfe, President of DMG America—were celebrated at a warm and lively cocktail reception at the elegant Harmonie Club in Manhattan. The event raised funds to create two new state-of-the-art post-graduate clinics at TAU's Maurice and Gabriella Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine.

The Hon. Ido Aharoni, Consul General of Israel in New York, offered greetings, and special guest speaker Prof. Ilana Eli, Head of the School of Dental Medicine at TAU, spoke movingly about how the clinics will improve the treatment of special needs patients and provide advanced training for new generations of dental specialists. Campaign leaders Dr. Gail SchupakSteven Kess, and Dr. Marc Rothman emphasized Alpha Omega's role in the creation of TAU's dental school and its current role in the new project to renovate the clinics.

Heartfelt comments were offered by one of the founders of the dental school, Dr. Ben Williamowsky, who warmly remembered his late friend, Dr. Ralph Rothstein. The clinics will be named for both men: The Rothstein-Williamowsky Post-Graduate Clinics. Stanley Bergman, Chairman & CEO of Henry Schein, Inc., offered congratulations via videotape message.
