Doctor and philanthropist Miriam Adelson was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the United States’ highest civilian honor on Friday for her medical career, in addition to her stalwart support for the State of Israel and numerous Jewish causes.

“To protect the sacred heritage of the Jewish faith, Miriam and [her husband] Sheldon have supported Jewish schools, Holocaust memorial organizations and helped Jewish Americans visit the Holy Land,” said U.S. President Donald Trump.

The Adelsons donated $30 million towards the president’s 2016 campaign effort. They gave $100 million for Republican campaigns in the 2018 midterms.

Also honored were Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who is retiring at the end of the year as one of the nation’s longest-serving senators; NFL legends Roger Staubach and Alan Page, who served on the Minnesota Supreme Court. Posthumously awarded the medal were former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; baseball icon George Herman “Babe” Ruth; and Elvis Presley, better known as “The King of Rock and Roll.”
