Quad Citians gathered Thursday night help protect children in Israel. The 10th annual Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel was held at the Calvary Church of the Quad Cities in Moline. The event was filled with singing, dancing and honoring the importance of the country. All the proceeds of Thursday night's event will help bomb proof an Israeli pre-school that's only 700 yards away from Gaza and missile attacks.
"We need to do everything we can to protect these little Jewish children and not just protect the little Jewish children, but do everything we can do to prevent World War III and a nuclear holocaust," said Tom McGovrn, Night to Honor Israel.
Over the years, these events have raised more than $420,000 for Jewish immigration, computer labs and even underground hospitals rooms.
