On March 13, 2008, Winthrop staff and community members spent the evening enjoying fine dining and outstanding musical performances from internationally renowned opera singers to raise funds to benefit Winthrop's Child Life Program. The 11th Annual Night at the Opera, "Sweet Voices for Precious Children," was Winthrop's most successful opera night yet - raising $75,000 for a program that is dedicated exclusively to minimizing children's fears and anxiety during the hospital experience.
More than 230 guests were in attendance at the first Night at the Opera to be held off-campus at the Garden City Hotel. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour and sit-down dinner as the magnificent harmony of Karen Foster, soprano; Tonna Miller, soprano; and Michael Wanko, baritone, accompanied by pianist Jennifer Peterson, filled the room.
"I wish to thank our benefactors and friends for generously supporting this special musical event and for helping make a difference in the lives of Winthrop's pediatric patients and their families," said Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at Winthrop.
Next year's event will take place on March 19, 2009 at the Garden City Hotel. For more information, please contact Winthrop's Office of Development at (516) 663-3398.
