Golf Outing to Benefit Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders & Their Families...Or Make a Donation to Show Your Support
Mineola, NY — When a child is diagnosed with cancer, treating the disease is only part of the battle. There are also a host of psychological, social, and educational concerns for the child and their family. At the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at NYU Winthrop Hospital, psychosocial support services that include a Child Life program, music therapy, and counseling services are provided to patients and their families free of charge - even though most of these services are not reimbursed by health insurance. Instead, support comes from donations made by various benefactors.
To boost that support, Franklin Square resident Michael C. Stroud, President and founder of Atlas Investigations, Inc., joined forces with his business associate, Garden City resident Rosemary Cinquemani, partner in the law firm of Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, PC, and organized the first annual CCFK Golf Outing in 2005. Since that time, their collective efforts, together with support from colleagues, friends of the CCFK, and other members of the community, have raised more than $650,000 for CCFK’s support services. The 15th Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing will take place on Monday, June 17, starting at noon at the prestigious Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge. The afternoon of golf will be followed by a lively dinner and reception, featuring good food and great company as well as a variety of community auction prizes.CCFK Golf Outing Event Chairs, Rosemary Cinquemani of Garden City, and Michael Stroud of Franklin Square, welcome community members at the 14th Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing. The 15th Annual CCFK Golf Outing will take place on Monday, June 17, 2019, at the Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge.
“The physicians and staff at NYU Winthrop’s CCFK provide invaluable services, care, and compassion for our young patients and their families. They need our continued support, and we are proud to be a part of the 15th Annual CCFK Golf Outing, which will help raise funds for those services not covered by insurance,” said event co-chair Rosemary Cinquemani.
The co-chairs are seeking sponsors, golfers, and supporters. Sponsorships, reservations and donations of any amount may be made online at www.nyuwinthrop.org/events; click on 2019 CCFK Golf Outing. For more information about NYU Winthrop’s Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing call 516-663-1565.
