Dr. Rubin Becker received much deserved honours at an event held on April 6 to salute his outstanding service and dedication to his patients and their families. Dr. Becker, a specialist in geriatrics and internal medicine, has been with Mount Sinai since 1985.
The Rubin Becker Endowment Fund was created in spring 2013 to ensure the long-term funding of programs and services not covered by our Health Agency – innovative programs such as art and music therapy, outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation, and palliative home care – that are dependent on private support.
The evening was an occasion to thank donors for their generous contributions to the Fund. Automobiles Etcetera hosted the beautiful event, providing a dream location in keeping with Dr. Becker’s passion for fine automobiles and a treat for car enthusiasts.
Donors, colleagues and family members toasted Dr. Becker at the elegant cocktail dinatoire. Leon Krolik welcomed the 100 guests and thanked the Co-chairs of the campaign, Marsha Becker and her son, Brian Becker for their unwavering commitment and dedication to this project. The Fund has now reached its goal of raising $1 million and its income will provide a permanent revenue stream to support programs and services not covered by government funding.
A special evening last fall saw the much-anticipated unveiling of the Donor Wall of Compassion. The event on November 17 was the culmination of a major effort to support palliative programs and services at Mount Sinai Hospital. Launched in the spring of 2016, the Wall of Compassion project honours Alta Levenson for her long-standing service and dedication as a Board member and volunteer.Located near the clinic entrance, the Wall installation displays a large heart depicted in acrylic dove shapes. The beautiful and inspiring work features the dedications of its donors and underlines the commitment of our community to the Hospital.
Guests were received for cocktails in a large reception tent before walking into the Hospital on “the blue carpet” – in keeping with the colour scheme of the Wall’s artwork! Christina A. Gold, CEO of The Western Union Company, served as Master of Ceremonies for the happy occasion. The event was an opportunity to recognize the generosity of our donors and to celebrate the success of the Tribute Committee, chaired by Heleena Wiltzer. Thanks to their hard work, they surpassed their original objective by raising more than $750,000.
Mount Sinai is a role model for palliative care in Quebec and offers a number of special programs to enhance quality of life. Many of these services are not covered by the budget allocated by government and we depend on private support to offer them each year.
