  • After Anthony and Lauren DiStasio unexpectedly lost their eight-month-old son Kyle in 2007, their families founded the Kyle DiStasio Memorial Fund to benefit the needs of children. Through a golf tournament at Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington, the organization raised $10,000 which they generously donated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Winthrop-University Hospital.

    �Over the past five years, Winthrop has taken extra good care of my family, and all four of my parent�s grandchildren were born here,� said Mrs. DiStasio. �We wanted to make a donation in remembrance of Kyle and thought what better place than Winthrop.�

    Winthrop also had the recent privilege to share in the DiStasio family�s joy when Lauren and Anthony welcomed a healthy baby girl Alexandra Kylie Marie on October 20, 2008.
