Dr. Robert Boostanfar to be honored at Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Fund's inaugural benefit dinner this November!

The Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Fund will be hosting their first annual benefit dinner honoring fertility specialist Dr. Robert Boostanfar of HRC's Encino and Westlake Village offices!

 

Alan and Emily Feit tried four times to have a child through in vitro fertilization (IVF), an infertility treatment that can cost well over $10,000 per attempt. On the fifth try, however, they ended up with twins — and now they want to help others in similar situations.

The San Fernando Valley couple has provided $100,000 in seed money to create the Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Loan Fund through the Jewish Free Loan Association (JFLA), which provides interest-free microloans to Southern California residents.

Beginning this past spring, the L.A.-based JFLA has been offering loans of up to $15,000 to Jewish couples who need help paying for an in vitro procedure, which is used when other methods of reproductive technology have failed. It can cost up to $20,000, or an average of $12,400 according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

On November 16th, JFLA and the Feits are partnering on a gala event with the hope of raising at least $250,000 for the fund. Currently, it has more than $200,000, with additional support coming from friends and family of the Feits who gave to the fund in lieu of birthday gifts for their twins’ recent birthday.The November event will be held at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel and will honor the Feits’ infertility doctor, Dr. Robert Boostanfar.
