rccs-reb-hershel-kohnTwelve Applications for Insurance Funding Received in One Week r”l

In response to the record paced-numbers of RCCS (Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society) cancer patients seekingĀ  insurance and medical subsidies, the RCCS Flatbush sub-committee implores its neighbors and constituents to support tonight’s life-saving initiative at this year’s RCCS Bar-B-Q in front of 937 East 22nd Street in Flatbush.

In the past 12 months, RCCS has assisted close to 1,200 cancer patients, in the USA and in Israel, making it the worst year in its 17 years of existence. Once again, two neighboring communities, Crown Heights and Marine Park, will join the effort to make this year’s barbecue the most successful ever.

The exciting and tasteful RCCS Flatbush barbecue will grace East 22nd Street and Avenue I, in front of the home of Pinny & Yaffa Rand, and will benefit the scores of cancer-stricken patients in the Flatbush, Marine Park and Crown Heights communities.

The annual Flatbush RCCS BBQ has gained the reputation as being the largest and, arguably, most vital barbecue on the community calendar. Delicious entrees, mouth-watering accoutrements, and exciting raffle prizes and entertainment combine for an evening of chessed and inspiration. Wine tasting, a sushi bar, and other delectable delights will add to the festivities.

An exciting program has been planned with a mini auction and a grand raffle of a car lease plus entertainment by the Mezamrim choral group. Community service awards will be presented to Sergeant Yitzy Jablon of the NYPD Community Affairs Division, to Jerry Weissman, President of Omni Health Care, and to Yoel Brull, founder of A Hope to Heal.

Rabbi Moshe Klein will lead the public recitation of Tehillim in behalf of all Cholei Yisroel and the wounded soldiers in Eretz Yisroel.

RCCS Flatbush Division is in memory of Tziporah Faiga Gelb a”h and the BBQ is in memory of Chedva Freidel Rand a”h. The Crown Heights Chapter is in honor of the Rubashkin Family.

Each year, RCCS saves the lives of hundreds of cancer-stricken patients in need by subsidizing their health insurance premiums, thus providing them access to the best possible medical care. Today, RCCS subsidizes insurance policies for over 350 cancer-stricken patients each year, and provides hundreds more with emergency medical subsidies, insurance advocacy, social services, and medical direction.
