The 2014 A Cause to Celebrate raised more than $147,000, bringing the event's total contributions to NYU Winthrop's Child Life Program since its inception 17 years ago to more than one million dollars.

"Year after year, the ongoing generosity of countless individuals who have supported this event has helped enable NYU Winthrop's Child Life Program to continue to meet the unique psychosocial needs of our pediatric patients and their families," said Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at NYU Winthrop.

Guests enjoyed a lovely cocktail hour followed by a sit-down dinner in the main ballroom as The Atlantic City Boys brought the crowd to its feet during their performance. Attendees also had an opportunity to participate in an exciting raffle and silent auction, featuring beautiful items donated by local vendors.
