Annual Event is a Recipe for Success for One Local Foundation
Amazing food, generous people, and a Foundation that has long been committed to serving the needs of pediatric patients and their families are a recipe for success for one annual fundraiser. The Michael Magro Foundation, established by Paul and Terrie Magro to honor the life of their son, Michael, recently held its 13th Annual Evening of Tasting and Giving – a festive affair that raised $165,000 in part to support pediatric patients and their families at NYU Winthrop Hospital.

The event drew more than 700 people to the Carltun in East Meadow, where attendees enjoyed delicious food from more than a dozen restaurants, as well as drinks, a wide array of desserts, and live entertainment and drawings..

In addition to providing financial assistance to families dealing with pediatric cancer, the Michael Magro Foundation is instrumental in carrying out numerous other programs at the NYU Winthrop, including Project SOAR (School Re-Entry and Ongoing Academic Resources) at the Cancer Center for Kids, which helps transition cancer patients back into a school environment.
