The nonprofit American Friends of Dental Volunteers for Israel (AFDVI) will host a charity event featuring actors Michael Zegen and Caroline Aaron of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Sunday, December 1 in the Septodont Lecture Hall of New York University’s College of Dentistry at 7:30 pm. The evening will benefit the Dental Volunteers for Israel (DVI) Trudi Birger Clinic in Jerusalem.
The DVI Clinic is the largest free dental clinic in Israel, offering state-of-the-art dental treatment to Jerusalem’s underserved and special needs children and at-risk youth, ages 4 to 26, and needy seniors, age 65 and older, including Holocaust survivors. Each year, more than 100 volunteer dentists treat an average of 2,700 children and young adults and provide preliminary dental care to more than 100 seniors receiving dentures.
Zegen and Aaron will share their experiences on the set of the Amazon original series, which has won, among other awards, the 2018 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series and the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Television Series-Musical or Comedy. Zegen and Aaron also won the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
“We are thrilled to be able to present such a fun and interesting program for friends from around the world who support our work with the DVI Clinic and for the new friends we are likely to make as fans of the actors and the show,” said Dr. Scott Dubowsky, president of AFDVI and DVI Clinic volunteer.
“I think we all secretly dream of being on the set of a television show or movie to see how everything comes together. We can’t wait to hear from Michael and Caroline what exactly that’s like,” said Dubowsky.
Sara Lee Kessler, anchor at NBC News Radio and 77 WABC, will be the moderator for the evening. Sponsors include Henry Schein, Septodont, I Fish Haines Alaska and Glacier View Lodge, Practice Perfect Systems, Drs. Douglas and Margo Woll, and others.
