Haim Saban and Simon Cowell enjoyed their evening at a Friends of the IDF Western Region Gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Saban and Cowell donated $2.3 million and $50,000 respectively, and the event raised NIS 70 million in total.

The almost 1,200 attendees enjoyed a rare singing performance from Lionel Richie.

‘The Jewish and Israeli community in Los Angeles appreciates and embraces the soldiers of the IDF, and will continue to do everything [possible] in order to give thanks to them and strengthen them in whatever is needed,’ said Saban.
