  • One Thousand and One Arabian Nights set the stage for Winthrop’s annual fund-raising gala. Held on October 21 at EAB Plaza in Uniondale, the event raised more than $530,000 which will be used to support vital Hospital initiatives. More than 700 friends and supporters attended the elegant affair, which featured exotic entertainment evocative of ancient Arabia. Guests tried their luck at a dazzling casino area, cashed in their chips for exciting prizes, and danced the night away.

    “Proceeds from this fund-raiser will help support our campus-wide capital improvement campaign, which will enable the Hospital to continue to provide technologically advanced healthcare to the entire region,” said Gala Co-Chair Richard A. Newhouse, Jr., Chairman of Winthrop’s Board of Directors. Mr. Newhouse shared the role of Event Co-Chair with his wife, Tracy, and Winthrop attending gastroenterologist Robert S. Bartolomeo, MD.

    “As a practicing physician at Winthrop for the past 24 years, I am acutely aware of the need for continuous reinvestment in the Hospital’s infrastructure in order to continue to provide the excellent care for which the staff and Hospital are known,” added Dr. Bartolomeo.

    Despite the lure of game two of the 2000 Subway Series, more than 700 guests crowded the atrium at EAB Plaza in Uniondale to help raise more than half a million dollars to benefit Winthrop. Die-hard baseball fans were able to keep tabs on the game by watching a large screen television set up in the casino area.

    Lady Luck smiled on Mrs. Frank A. Monteleone, Dr. Monteleone, Mrs. Robert S. Bartolomeo, Dr. Angela Mitrani-Schwartz, Mrs. Michael Khalife, and Mrs. Victor Gallo, as they enjoyed a stop in the casino at 1,001 Arabian Nights, Winthrop’s Annual Gala spectacular.
