On Wednesday, January 31, 2018, we are presenting Mercedes Ivcher, Founding President of WIZO USA, the first ever WIZO FLORIDA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. Mercedes has dedicated her entire life to WIZO and the State of Israel. But her success and achievements are not hers alone, you all, in some way helped and supported her through the years as volunteers, donors or friends. Your presence and support has always been part of her success as a WIZO leader. Let’s all honor her well-deserved recognition award all together. Your presence or participation will make a tremendous difference on her special night. Sharing the stage with Mercedes are the following remarkable guests: Staff Sergeant of the IDF Paratrooper Unit, Sorin Hershcu, receiving the Ot Ha’Gevurah award for his distinguished participation during Operation Entebee. Salo Esquenazi, receiving the Man of the Year Award for his unwavering support of his wife Stephanie, who has dedicated many years to helping WIZO Florida.
