Gregg's Wings Foundation Honors a Little Life in a Big Way

Bill and Debi Kienke, founders of the Gregg's Wings Foundation, have continued to honor the life of their infant son by supporting NYU Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK). At a recent visit to the CCFK, the Kienke family presented Dr. Mark Weinblatt with $50,000 in proceeds from their 2016 Gregg's Wings Golf Outing. To date, the Gregg's Wings Foundation's philanthropic efforts have contributed over $335,000 to benefit the CCFK’s psychosocial support programs.

Gregg's Wings Foundation Honors a Little Life in a Big WayPictured at the recent check presentation are (l.-r.) Bill Kienke; Debi Kienke; Dr. Mark Weinblatt; Ashley Carlo, Manager of the CCFK; Kristina Riera and Michael Kienke.

The Foundation and its annual golf outing is an ongoing tribute to the Kienkes' son Gregg, who passed away from cancer at just weeks old. To give his life great meaning and to impact other families who are currently battling pediatric cancer, the Kienke family has made it their life's mission to support the works of Gregg's physicians Mark Weinblatt, MD, Chief of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Winthrop and Director of the Cancer Center for Kids, and Philip Scimeca, MD, Associate Chief of the Division.

The Foundation's gift will continue to underwrite support for vital psychosocial services and programs, as well as support groups, printing of a patient-family newsletter and a 2nd Annual Alumni Day for patients and families that are off-treatment.
