Milestone "Cause" Raises $110,000 for Child Life Program
The 20th Annual "A Cause to Celebrate," benefiting the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital, was a wonderful success as nearly 250 guests gathered on March 16 at the Garden City Hotel. Amid the musical backdrop of "Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway," featuring classic Broadway hits sung by today's top Broadway stars, and produced by Neil Berg himself, the event also honored Hayden S. Wool, Esq., Partner and Director at Garfunkel Wild, PC, for his service and lasting commitment to NYU Winthrop over the years. The collective efforts of all those in attendance, as well as support from long-time Hospital friends and supporters, resulted in an impressive $110,000 raised for a program which is supported in its entirety by philanthropic contributions.
"The Hospital's relationship with Mr. Wool runs deep, and it was a great privilege to honor him and all that he has done for Pediatrics at NYU Winthrop over the years," said Leonard R. Krilov, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease at NYU Winthrop Hospital. "Furthermore, the funds raised for our Child Life Program as a result of this event will no doubt benefit scores of patients and their families. For that, we are most grateful."
