An Outpouring of Support for the Cancer Center for Kids

In recent months, the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at NYU Winthrop has received an outpouring of support from community members and local foundations, as well as patients and families – all eager to support the Center’s mission to provide each pediatric patient with the best possible chances of recovery through superior medical care in a nurturing outpatient setting. Following are some highlights:

Golf Outing event | NYU Winthrop Hospital

The 13th Annual Golf Outing to support CCFK took place at the Wind Watch Golf & Country Club and welcomed over 100 golfers. Event Co-chairs were long-time supporters Rosemary Cinquemani, Esq., Partner at Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, P.C., Michael C. Stroud, President of Atlas Investigations, Inc., and Frank Catelli, Esq. Thanks to their dedication as well as that of the event Committee, tournament proceeds totaled nearly $74,000. The funds will help underwrite CCFK psychosocial services, which are not reimbursable by government or third-party insurers.

Fun Run event | NYU Winthrop Hospital

More than 800 people gathered at Eisenhower Park for the CCFK Annual Fun Run to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer. Support from scores of participants, volunteers, donors and sponsors helped raise over $60,000 for the CCFK to provide hope and healing to children and families via emotional support services and programs. In addition to the 5K-walk/run, a special one-half mile walk was held for children, who were joined by proud parents. The special day featured a play area for youngsters, music and entertainment, and included prizes and refreshments.

Music Video | NYU Winthrop Hospital

Mark Twain once wrote, “Music represents that which cannot be put into words or remain silent.” This message resonates strongly with participants of the CCFK Music Therapy Program and its after-hours Music Appreciation Program. Thanks to underwriting from the CME Group Community Foundation and support by the Amanda Styles Cirelli Foundation, patients had an opportunity to create an amazing music video entitled “Together.” The video debuted at an exclusive Red Carpet Premiere Party. The memorable event celebrated months of hard work that included songwriting, instrument playing and dancing in the Center’s music workshops, and young CCFK musicians were recognized and joined in celebration by family and friends.

Parts Authority supporters of Cancer Center for Kids | NYU Winthrop Hospital

Lastly, the Parts Authority, one of the largest distributors of automotive and truck parts on the East Coast, held its 2017 trade show at Citifield while simultaneously raising funds for CCFK. The event attracted more than 3,500 auto enthusiasts, vendors and customers and raised more than $44,000 to benefit the Center’s programs and services.
