JEWISH NATIONAL FUND ANNOUNCES 2016 NEGEV GALA HONOUREES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 24, 2015

 

The Negev Gala has honoured outstanding leaders in the Winnipeg community since 1953.

The Jewish National Fund of Canada – Manitoba/Saskatchewan Regional Branch is proud to announce that Peter  Leipsic will be the 2016 Negev Gala honouree. The Gala will take place on Tuesday, May 31st, 2016.

 

“Peter IS very deserving of this tribute. They have touched many lives through their extraordinary commitment to Israel and the Jewish and local communities in Winnipeg”, commented Board President Karla Berbrayer.

 

Peter IS honoured and humbled by this recognition. He is looking forward to celebrating with the entire community at the Gala.

 

Our 2016 Negev Gala honouree and his wife Karen has been active and appreciated members of our community for many years.  Their children and grandchildren are their pride and joy.  Jonathon and Karly live in Vancouver, Sara and Kevin are in Costa Rica. Peter, a successful insurance professional, was one of the founding partners of Horizon Insurance that was sold to Hub International a few years ago.

 

 

Founded in 1901, the Jewish National Fund has evolved into a global environment leader, planting over 240 million trees, constructing more than 250 reservoirs & dams and developing over 250,000 acres of land while creating more than 1000 parks and providing stable infrastructure for over 1000 communities.

 

 

This gala is the Jewish National Fund’s most important fundraising event of the year. All proceeds generated are directed to environmental research and development projects in the State of Israel.
