The Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) association will mark its 20th anniversary with a gala charity concert at Hechal Hatarbut in Tel Aviv on October 6 (8:30 p.m.). The organizers have lined up a stellar roster of performers for the occasion, all of whom will volunteer their services for the evening. The program includes appearances by diva Rita and international rock star Asaf Avidan, as well as the Raanana Symphonette orchestra and South Korean-born Dutch classical harp player Lavinia Meijer. Irrepressible comic and talent-show host Zvika Hadar will act as MC.

SACH is one of the largest humanitarian undertakings in the field in the world, and provides urgently needed pediatric heart surgery and follow-up care for indigent children from developing countries. The Israel-based organization aims to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from countries where the heart surgery they need is unobtainable.

According to SACH, every 29 hours doctors working on behalf of the network save a child’s life in medical facilities in Israel or on medical missions in partner countries around the world. Thousands of children are alive today because of a small group of medical professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to perform life-saving cardiac surgery and train local medical personnel.

The October 6 event will also kick-start a fundraising effort to establish a children’s hospital outfit at Wolfson Hospital in Holon.
