Mineola, NY – Winthrop-University Hospital’s 26th Annual Golf Tournament is scheduled for Monday, May 9 at The Creek and Meadow Brook Golf Clubs, and Winthrop is pleased to announce that Michael A. Perna, President and CEO of Michael Anthony Contracting Corp., will Chair the event.
Winthrop’s annual Golf Tournament is one of the most important fundraisers of the year for the Hospital; last year the event raised a record $553,000 in support of the development of a visionary and robust basic, translational and outcomes Research Institute at Winthrop. The participation of community members and Hospital supporters is vital to the success of this event, and Mr. Perna is spearheading the efforts of an engaged Golf Committee that will be instrumental in helping Hospital achieve its fundraising goals.
As Founder, President and CEO of Michael Anthony Contracting Corp., Mr. Perna oversees a staff of over 90 construction professionals. Early in his career, his respect for the healthcare profession led him to pursue construction projects specific to the industry. He and his firm are highly respected among many of New York’s most prestigious private healthcare and academic institutions.
What’s more, in 2004, Mr. Perna founded the Michael Anthony Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for research into cures for pediatric diseases, and to support children that have been diagnosed with cancer and their families. He is also a board member for several not-for-profit organizations and is active in many trade and professional organizations.
Mr. Perna was educated in Engineering at New York’s Institute of Design and Construction, and is a noted lecturer on Infection Control in Hospital and Healthcare Facilities as it relates to contractors’ responsibilities.
Mr. Perna resides in Manhasset with his wife, Barbara, and their three children.
