The Big Easy Exceeds $1,000,000 Milestone for NYU Winthrop

Amidst the sights and sounds of New Orleans, over 850 friends and supporters of NYU Winthrop Hospital gathered at RXR Plaza on October 20, 2012 for the 2012 Gala, The Big Easy. The evening paid honor to two extraordinary individuals – Michael D. Ammazzalorso, MD, Chief Medical Officer at NYU Winthrop, and Edward Travaglianti of TD Bank and member of NYU Winthrop’s Board of Directors – both of whom earned Streaming Star Awards in recognition of their years of service and extraordinary contributions to NYU Winthrop Hospital and its patients.

NYU Winthrop’s Annual Gala – which honors individuals whose hard work and dedication to NYU Winthrop go above and beyond in service to the community – was a record-breaking event for the Hospital this year, raising more than $1,015,000 in support of the Research Institute Building Fund and the Research Endowment.

To our Benefactors, Friends, Corporate Partners and the Medical Community, our greatest appreciation for making The Big Easy a success!
