The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science (ACWIS) will honor Chicago philanthropist King Harris.
This year’s gala Dinner Chair Renée Crown and Event Chair William A. Marovitz will host an evening of sumptuous dining, entertainment and philanthropy that is attended annually by more than 700 business and community leaders. Bill Kurtis will serve as the evening’s emcee, which will feature key-note speaker Professor Daniel Zajfman, president of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.
The theme of the 2012 gala is “Then, Now and Tomorrow” (TNT) focusing on The Weizmann Institute’s past accomplishments, current developments and future achievements. Tom Kehoe of Kehoe Designs will design eye-popping visual elements for this year’s “explosive” event.
