New York (TADIAS) – Gemini Health Care Group announced that it will hold its 5th Annual Fundraiser Gala on Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 7 PM to 12 AM at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. The U.S.-based organization, which focuses on providing pediatric services and training in Ethiopia, was founded by Ethiopian American physician Dr. Ebba K. Ebba, formerly an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta and currently in private practice in Jacksonville, Alabama.

In a statement Dr. Ebba said this year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Irwin Redlener, founder and president of the Children’s Health Fund (CHF), which provides health care to homeless children in New York while supporting a national network of pediatric mobile clinics and fixed site facilities in rural and urban communities targeting medically underserved children.

“In addition, each year we honor individuals who have made significant contribution to medicine or to the community in general,” Dr. Ebba said. “This year, we will be honoring a couple of pioneering Ethiopian physicians, Dr. Taye Mekuria and Dr. Bekele Afessa, who dedicated their lives and career to the advancement of medicine. Mr. Melakou Guirbo, a determined organizer working to inspire and mentor young Ethiopians in the Washington, D.C. area, will also be honored for his community service.”

The evening program includes dinner, music, live and silent auctions featuring a variety of prizes ranging from artworks donated by local artists to round-trip airline tickets to Ethiopia.
