Washington area members of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem gathered on a sunlit afternoon at the stunning home of fellow member Lorna Gladstone and her husband David overlooking the Potomac River. More than 80 members raised funds for the St. John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group, headquartered in East Jerusalem, Israel, which treats over 110,000 patients. Washington regional chair Patricia Dresser welcomed the group and Victoria Sheffield, president of the International Eye Foundation, outlined the history of the order, which dates from 1099 and the Knights of the First Crusade.
