Jay Leno raises $50,000 for Israeli EMS service, donates ambulance

Comedian Jay Leno raised $50,000 for and donated a $36,000 fully equipped ambulance to United Hatzalah at a sold-out special concert fundraiser for Israel’s largest volunteer EMS service at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York on Sunday.

The former Tonight Show host performed a long comedy set and called Eli Beer, the founder and president of the organization, up to the stage after his act, telling him: “What you guys are doing is so special, I am so proud to be here and be part of it. I have 117 motorcycles in my collection but none of my motorcycles save lives. I want to donate an ambulance with all of the trappings.”
