The breakdown is as follows:

Giving Gala

In January 2014, National Jewish Health received $2.9 million from the New York real estate community to support the development of Pediatric Asthma and Allergy Research and Treatment.

These donations were raised from an annual gala in New York City, “A Winter Evening” dance dinner, which has been held since 1984. This event has raised nearly $37 million to benefit National Jewish Health over the past two decades.
