  • (L.-R.) Ed Chewens, Administrative Director of Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics; Rob Serva, Suffolk County Court Clerk; Michael Stroud, President of Atlas Investigations and CCFK Golf Outing Chairman; and Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Winthrop's Department of Pediatrics, prepare to golf in support of Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids.
    On June 18, 2007, the third annual Golf Outing to benefit Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) took place at the Hamlet Wind Watch Golf & Country Club in Hauppauge. The event raised almost $40,000 for the psychosocial programs at the CCFK, bringing the event's three-year grand total to more than $112,000. The CCFK Golf Outing was initiated and chaired by Michael C. Stroud of Atlas Investigations, Inc. in Garden City, and co-chairs Rosemary Cinquemani, partner in the law firm of Furey, Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, P.C. in Seaford, and Frank Catelli of Furey, Furey, Leverage, Manzione, Williams & Darlington, P.C. in Hempstead, who helped to make the event a terrific success.

    Michael and Rosemary were both born at Winthrop back when it was Nassau Hospital and both of the families have long considered Winthrop to be their hospital of choice.

    "My son Robert is a hematology patient of Dr. Mark Weinblatt, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology and Director of the CCFK, and his associate Dr. Igal Fligman, and the Cancer Center for Kids is very dear to me," said Ms. Cinquemani. Robert, who is nine years old, also helps with contributions and has donated many toys for the children of the CCFK.

    Raffle prizes at the Golf Outing included Tourneau and Movado watches and a beautiful jemstone necklace contributed by Fortunoff in Westbury, tickets on Jet Blue Airways, wine from Banfi Vintners and more. Chef Paul Magro of Hicksville donated an inhome dinner for six and Rosemary Stroud of Levittown donated a mixed case of wines that featured custommade labels sporting the Cancer Center for Kids logo.

    In addition to a Hole-in-One challenge featuring a new car from Lexus of Massapequa, golfers had the opportunity to participate in the "Jet Blue Challenge," orchestrated and sponsored by event co-chair Frank Catelli, which featured the chance to win Jet Blue gift cards, a free golf vacation and the opportunity to participate in the Jet Blue Shoot- Out for a grand prize of $50,000.

    "It's all about doing the right thing," said event chairman Mr. Stroud. "We all have a responsibility to contribute to the community, and helping the children who are being treated at the Cancer Center for Kids is a terrific way to do just that."
