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.
