Each year during the December holiday season, friends and supporters of NYU Winthrop gather for the Yuletide Ball, an elegant evening of dining, dancing and fundraising to benefit the Hospital’s Child Life Program. The 2014 Yuletide Ball, graciously hosted by Garden City residents John and Kristin Miller, was a great success, raising over $216,000.
The Yuletide Ball is a pivotal annual event that garners the community’s support for NYU Winthrop’s unique Child Life Program, through which specially trained Child Life Specialists help children understand and cope with hospitalization. The caring and highly trained staff use therapeutic play, arts and crafts, entertainment and other diversions to ensure that the hospital experience is as stress-free as possible for children and their families. Child Life Specialists are available in the Pediatric Emergency Unit, the Cancer Center for Kids, Pediatric Specialty Center and the Hospital’s Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center.
