  • 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.
