Last Thursday, Society Club – Leumi- Tech’s exclusive community for CEOs, founders and entrepreneurs – invited 100 members and their spouses to spend the night at the Elma Hotel in Zichron Yaakov.

LeumiTech CEO Yifat Oron welcomed all the guests to the Society Club’s formal dinner. Later in the evening, guests were treated to a fascinating and entertaining talk by Dr. Haim Shapira.

Irit Admoni Perlman, director of Israel Friends of Beit Hatfutsot, joined together with Gallabia designers Etti Zayeg and Merav Hadari, to create a morning full of Israeli fashion. The event was held around the pool at Mati Caraso’s house at Moshav Bnei Zion. Models showing off Gallabia’s new summer collection walked the catwalk in front of all the guests. The fashion show was sponsored by Discount Private Banking. Each guest paid NIS 200 to attend the event, and all proceeds went toward bringing immigrants and soldiers from the periphery to visit at Beit Hatfutsot.

Also attending the festivities were Osem group chairman Dan Propper, Gad Propper, Osem CEO Itzik Tzaig, and Kiryat Gat Mayor Aviram Dahari. Tzaig shared with the guests his vision for the factory, which will include a visitor’s center and will hopefully attract families that have never been in Kiryat Gat before.
