Dear Weizmann Friends,

Thank you for supporting the Leading Men Gala, an unprecedented event where we celebrated Weizmann Canada’s 50th anniversary, our esteemed Leading Men, and YOU, our generous supporters.
We promised you an evening that was ‘out of this world’, and with the help of our great friends, Captain of the Starship Enterprise - Mr. William Shatner, and Professor Oded Aharonson - the Weizmann captain of space research, the evening proved to be just that.

Through your continuous support of the Weizmann Institute of Science and the projects chosen by our Leading Men, we are extremely proud to have surpassed our goal, raising a total of $6,000,000, making it possible for Weizmann scientists to continue their cutting-edge research, and have a global impact - transforming countless lives.

We are extremely grateful for your commitment and are honoured that you have partnered with us on this very memorable journey.

Yours most sincerely,

Francie Klein & Darlene Switzer-Foster
