Gregg’s Wings Foundation Continues Support

The Kienke family, who helped facilitate Bo Jackson’s visit to the CCFK, made a separate visit recently to present $90,000 in proceeds from its sold out 2015 Gregg’s Wings Golf Outing. To date, the Gregg’s Wings Foundation’s philanthropic efforts have contributed nearly $300,000 to benefit the CCFK’s psychosocial support programs.

Pictured at the recent check presentation (l.-r.) are Dr. Weinblatt; Bill Kienke; Michael Kienke; Bryan Kienke and his wife, Mary, with their new addition, William Gregg; and Debi Kienke.

The Foundation and its efforts serve as tribute to the infant son of Bill and Debi Kienke, Gregg, who tragically passed away from cancer weeks after he was born, and for whom the Foundation was named. Through their annual golf outing, they honor the beautiful life of their son, as well as the compassionate support their family received by CCFK physicians Mark Weinblatt, MD, Chief of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at NYU Winthrop and Director of the Cancer Center for Kids, and Philip Scimeca, MD, Associate Chief of the Division. To fur- ther honor Gregg’s memory, in 2015 his family also made the first of three pledges to name one of the CCFK physician offices after him.

Since 2012, the Kienke’s support has been an integral part of ensuring that the same level of care they received is available to all children treated at the CCFK each year. The support they gave in 2015 will help to sustain the Center’s various psychosocial programs and initiatives, including Mom’s Support Groups, Young Adult Survivor Groups and a yet to be named day for families and patients treated at the CCFK.
