    In an overwhelming show of support for Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK), more than 350 people attended the second annual Black & White Ball on April 5, 2008 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City. The event raised $300,000 for the CCFK's comprehensive psychosocial program and in support of the Center's efforts to launch a full-time creative arts therapy program.

    The second annual Black & White Ball was held in honor of two Long Island families who are long-time supporters of the Cancer Center for Kids. Susan J. Miller and Daryl Rosenblatt established the Nina Jillian Rosenblatt Ambulatory Suite at the CCFK in memory of their daughter to provide young patients with a serene environment to receive treatment, and Gale Gregory-Barbagallo and Neil Barbagallo of Moms Helper, Inc. and Five Towns Nissan served as active members of the planning committee for the inaugural Black & White Ball in 2007.

    "This year's honorees and committee members worked very hard to provide another fun-filled evening, which raised vital funds to support us in our mission of caring for children - and families - in the most supportive way possible," said Linda Sweeney, practice manager at the Cancer Center for Kids.
