ORT Rub-a-Dub

Over 500 supporters attended ORT’s annual Rub-a-Dub event at Franklin Hills Country Club. Patrons were treated to hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, an extensive silent auction with high-end items, an elaborate, alfresco barbeque dinner and a live auction offering one-of-a-kind experiences. Bubba Urdan was presented with the Hermelin ORT Legacy Award in recognition of his achievements as a visionary leader of ORT and for the impact he has made on millions of ORT students whose lives have been changed due to his leadership. The event raised over $812,000.
