On Tuesday June 9th the Dov and Arlein Chetner Family Endowment Fund sponsored the Calgary JCC Seniors Luncheon to celebrate the Chetner Chai Essay Contest.  It was coincidence that all three prize winning essays were written by Calgary students, but it gave the Foundation, and the family, an opportunity to present the first prize cheque to William Katz.

Here is a short video of Arlein’s presentation to William “Kol Hakavod William Katz!“.
