Apparel manufacturer Ike Behar was honored recently with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Latin Auxiliary of Douglas Gardens, a Miami-based group that supports programs at Miami Jewish Health Systems.

The honor recognized Behar’s support for the organization, which provides comprehensive healthcare for seniors and others.

Behar received his award at the Latin Auxiliary’s annual Summer Luncheon and Boutique in Miami last month. Proceeds from the event benefitted the group’s music therapy program, which funds a full-time board-certified music therapist, musical instruments, a wide range of music media and recordings, and support equipment and resources to promote the health and well-being of the organization’s nursing home residents.

“We are delighted to recognize Ike Behar’s longstanding commitment to the Latin Auxiliary and Miami Jewish Health Systems,” said Rebecca Zeligman Salti, president of the Latin Auxiliary. “Supporters like Mr. Behar have been driving forces in sustaining Miami Jewish Health Systems’ mission to provide exceptional care to the South Florida community over the past 70 years. We are grateful for Ike’s gratitude and devotion. He is a pillar of our organization and our community.”
