The Sandler Family Major Gifts Event will be held Dec. 6, 2012, at St. Andrews Country Club. Dan Raviv, a CBS News correspondent and co-author of the new book, “Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars,” and Efraim Halevy, Israel’s ninth director of Mossad, will be the featured speakers.

The Sandlers, of Boca Raton, have contributed to more than 100 charities. They began donating to the Federation movement through the United Jewish Appeal more than 30 years ago when they lived in New York.

“The Federation knows where the need is,” Harvey Sandler said. “They can allocate their funds to the right place at the right time.”
