  • Winthrop's 10th Annual Opera Night, "Sweet Voices for Precious Children," was held on March 15, 2007 and was the Hospital's most lucrative Opera Night yet, raising $61,000 to benefit Winthrop's Child Life Program. The evening featured outstanding musical performances from internationally renowned opera singers who have performed at the Metropolitan Opera and New York City Opera, as well as fine dining and an exciting raffle.

    "Year after year, generous contributions from friends and supporters make this event a great success and ensure that the Child Life Program will flourish for years to come," noted Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at Winthrop.

    The goal of Winthrop's Child Life Program is to help minimize children's fears and reduce potential anxiety during the hospital experience. Certified Child Life Specialists address the needs of hospitalized children through supervised play, recreation, age-appropriate answers to questions, education and emotional support. The support services provided by Child Life are also beneficial to parents, who gain a better understanding of the child's hospital experience and how best to help him/her through it.

    The evening drew more than 150 guests, who enjoyed fine cuisine as the magnificent harmony of Theresa Santiago, soprano; Sarah Heltzel, mezzo soprano; and Michael Wanko, baritone, accompanied by pianist Caren Levine filled the room.

    Due to the overwhelming success of this year's event, a larger venue has been secured to host the 11th Annual Opera Night. Next year's event will take place at the Garden City Hotel on March 13, 2008. For more information, please contact the Development Office at (516) 663-3398.
