PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY FOR WINTHROP-UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL'S YULETIDE BALL – AN UNFORGETTABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION



As the weather turns colder, Garden City residents are reminded that the holiday season will soon be upon us – and with it the excitement of the annual Winthrop-University Hospital Yuletide Ball. Each year in December, residents gather for an elegant evening of fine dining, live music, dancing and philanthropy, all for the great cause of supporting the Child Life Program at the Children’s Medical Center at Winthrop. This year’s ball will take place on Saturday, December 7 at 7:00 PM at the beautiful home of Ali and Rich Volpe, who have graciously volunteered to host.

Thanks to the efforts of faithful supporters from the community, Winthrop’s Yuletide Ball has raised more than two million dollars in support of the Child Life Program, which is dedicated to helping children understand and cope with the hospital experience. Certified Child Life Specialists utilize therapeutic play, arts and crafts, entertainment and other diversions to ensure that the hospital experience is as stress-free as possible for children and their families.

“The Annual Yuletide Ball provides essential funding for the Pediatric Child Life Program,” said Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at Winthrop. “Funds raised from this event are vital to the continued success of the program.”

For more information about Winthrop’s 2013 Yuletide Ball, please contact Shari Prinstein, Assistant Director, Special Events at Winthrop, at (516) 663-3398 or email sprinstein@winthrop.org. To register, visit www.winthrop.org/donate/opportunities/yuletide-ball.
