WINTHROP’S 6TH ANNUAL CANCER CENTER FOR KIDS GOLF OUTING
Come Out and Golf to Help Seriously Ill Children… Or Make a Donation to Show Your Support
Mineola, NY – When a child is diagnosed with cancer, treating the disease is only part of the battle. There are also a host of psychological, social and educational concerns for the child – and the child’s family.
At the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop-University Hospital, psycho-social support services including individual and group counseling; music and play therapy; horticultural therapy; academic support and assistance with school re-entry and even a long-term effects follow-up program are provided to the children and their families free of charge – even though most these services are not reimbursed by health insurance.
Support for these vital services comes from private donations by groups and individuals who seek to assist pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Every year since 2005 Michael C. Stroud, president of Atlas Investigations, Inc. in Mineola, and co-chairs Rosemary Cinquemani, partner in the law firm of Furey, Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, P.C. in Seaford; and Frank Catelli, partner in the law firm of Furey, Furey, Leverage, Manzione, Williams & Darlington, P.C. in Hempstead, have rallied their friends, families and business associates to raise money for these vital services through the annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing. To date their hard work and generosity have raised more than $200,000 for the young patients of Winthrop’s Cancer Center for Kids.
“It means a great deal to us to be able to help these children,” said Mr. Stroud. “And we know that not everyone can come out and golf for the day, but if you can support the outing with a gift of any size, you can help to heal a child who is facing the unimaginable hardship of pediatric cancer.”
The Sixth Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing will take place on Monday, June 21, 2010 at the Hamlet Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge. An afternoon of golf on one of Long Island’s most beautiful golf courses will be followed by a lively dinner and reception featuring good food and great company as well as a wide variety of unique raffle prizes.
The co-chairs are seeking sponsors, golfers and supporters. Sponsorships, reservations and donations of any amount may be made online at www.winthrop.org/events; click on Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing.
