Evening of Tasting and Giving Raises Funds for Pediatric Patients
Winthrop supporters and staff join with the Magro Family at the Foundation’s Eighth Annual Evening of Tasting and Giving. The Michael Magro Foundation is committed to serving the emotional and quality-of-life needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Dedicated to easing the burdens of children with serious illnesses and their families, the Michael Magro Foundation continues to demonstrate its tireless commitment to Winthrop-University Hospital and its pediatric patients. The Foundation recently raised $66,000 at its Eighth Annual Evening of Tasting and Giving at the Woodlands in Woodbury on October 2, 2012. The funds benefit multiple pediatric areas at Winthrop.
The annual Evening of Tasting and Giving features gourmet food and fine wine donated and served by a variety of Long Island businesses. The funds raised at the event enable the Michael Magro Foundation to continue its support of Winthrop and its young patients and their families. This year’s event highlighted the Child Life Program at Winthrop.
Established by the Magro family in honor of Michael Magro, who passed away in July 2004 after a courageous battle with leukemia, the Michael Magro Foundation assists children who are undergoing medical treatment and their families. The Foundation’s longtime support has benefitted countless individuals at Winthrop.
