GARDEN CITY RESIDENT, GREGORY BURKE, PRESENTS GENEROUS GIFT TO WINTHROP IN SUPPORT OF NEW RESEARCH AND ACADEMIC CENTER



For some people, giving back provides an inherent reward through the simple satisfaction of helping others. Garden City resident Gregory Burke is one of those people. A known philanthropist and supporter of various important causes, Mr. Burke’s gift to Winthrop-University Hospital is no exception to his generosity.

Recently, Mr. Burke (pictured right) presented Kevin T. Curran, Member of Winthrop’s Board of Directors, with a $25,000 gift in support of the Hospital’s new Research and Academic Center. The Center, scheduled to be completed in late 2014, will focus on the research of diabetes, obesity and the cardiometabolic complications that arise from those conditions, as well as other pressing national and local health issues, including reducing premature births and treating conditions related to aging, such as Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis.

“Thanks to Mr. Burke’s support, we continue to make great progress with our campaign to raise funds for this vital new research facility,” said Lynn Drucker, Director of Development at Winthrop. “His passion for giving and helping others is infectious and we are deeply appreciative of his generosity towards Winthrop.”
