The event raised more than $51,000 in support of vital pediatric cancer services at Winthrop, bringing the committee’s total fundraising efforts as a result of their annual Golf Outing to more than half a million dollars.

One hundred golfers attended the Golf Outing at Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge this summer, a spectacular day featuring lunch, prizes and 19th hole festivities. Philip Scimeca, MD, Associate Chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, acknowledged the generosity of the three Golf Outing co-chairs who not only organize the annual event, but also help provide emergency assistance for Center families and orchestrate a Winter Wonderland of holiday toys for the children.

“Today is a real tribute to their unselfish dedication to the Center and their commitment to our cause,” said Dr. Scimeca. “We are so grateful.”
