The Young Patrons of the American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (AFTAM) Cocktail Reception

The Young Patrons of the American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art
(AFTAM) held their highly-anticipated Chelsea Gallery Cocktail Reception on
Thursday, March 26, at the Andrea Meislin Gallery.

A sold-out crowd came to support the cause and enjoy a private viewing of Boyan's "Vivid's Eye."

Co-chaired by Candice Alibayof and Maytal Sharifi, the event raised funds to
provide day-trips to the Museum for children from regions in Israeli
affected by rocket attacks.

AFTAM, founded in 1974 to raise funds for the Museum and to seek gifts of
notable works of art for its collections, began the Young Patrons group
three years ago. AFTAM Young Patrons' Executive Board members are: Stacy
Rotner, Chairperson; Valerie Fields, Membership Chair; Rebecca Alvandi,
Events Chair; and Julie Brener, Communications Chair.

The AFTAM Young Patrons board members are Candice Alibayof, Mimi Banks,
Matan Ben-Aviv, Nadav Besner, Adrienne Fields, Sarah Gleit, Ilya Katsman,
Danielle Metson, Marlin Nowbakht, Jeff Rapaport, Emeline Salama-Caro,
Jonathan Schmerin, Maytal Sharifi, Jeremy Shure, Andrew Waranch, Jessica
Ward, and David Yadegar.

The host committee for the March 26 event was Jennifer Aziz, Ben Bryce, Marc
Chodock, Roxanne Cohen, Matt Cohen, Lori Hammer, Zev Hendeles, Jason Hirsch,
Alon Hoshmand, Talia Katz, Melissa Licker, Stacy Marcus, Lindsey Rosenthal,
Alana Shultz, Mark Shabason, Lior Sofer, Lauri and Charles Stern, Talia
Zapolanski, and Jonathan Zhukovsky.

Also helping make the event a success were Israel's Barkan winery and One
with Nature, which provided gift bags containing its Dead Sea skincare
