When a child is hospitalized, it is common for both the parents and the child to experience a range of emotions. At NYU Winthrop Hospital, there is a vital program that is dedicated to helping patients and their families understand and cope with the Hospital experience – the Child Life Program. The program, which is supported entirely by philanthropic contributions, is a fundamental component of the superior pediatric care for which NYU Winthrop is known. That is why recently, members of the Garden City community, friends and supporters of NYU Winthrop came together for a festive evening to raise funds to benefit the program. The 2017 Yuletide Ball, graciously hosted by Michael and Kathryn Rafferty in their beautiful Garden City home, was the most successful Yuletide event to-date, raising more than $312,000 for the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop.

“The community’s support of our Child Life Program is so vital. Through events like these, we can continue to garner the much needed support for such a crucial program at NYU Winthrop,” said Leonard Krilov, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at NYU Winthrop.
