New York:
On March 14, over 100 friends and supporters gathered in NYC to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of NATAL at a cocktail event in Soho. Hosted by a passionate committee led by Ran Eliasaf of Northwind Group, the event brought together a diverse group of supporters to raise awareness and funds for NATAL’s efforts to support trauma victims and build resiliency in Israel.

A highlight of the evening, guests were honored to hear about experiences of living with post-trauma from Israeli combat veteran, Gilad Vital.  Gilad shared his inspiring story of survival and healing, along with a beautiful musical performance.  NATAL is honored to have placed small role in his powerful journey.  To learn more about Gilad’s story, click here. Special thanks to all who joined and supported the event, including our event sponsors: Northwind Group, Bank Hapoalim, Nanoosh Restaurant,  First American Title and NYC Bar and Catering Services

Thank you also to our auction sponsors, including Recanati Winery, Sister City Hotel,  Nanoosh Restaurant, Mint Restaurant, Shuki Ziri Salon, and the many Israeli artists who donated beautiful and unique pieces, including members of NATAL’s Social Therapeutic Club.
