  • Friends and supporters of Winthrop-University Hospital gathered on December 13, 2008 to celebrate at the Yuletide Ball fundraiser graciously hosted by Garden City residents Edward and Terri McNally at their beautiful home on Stewart Avenue. The annual charitable event was a success, raising nearly $90,000 for Winthrop’s Child Life and Pediatric Services.

    Winthrop’s Yuletide Ball is a popular holiday tradition for many local residents who enjoy the opportunity to attend an elegant evening of dining and dancing while kicking off the December holiday season — all in celebration of a worthy cause.

    Proceeds of the Yuletide Ball benefit Winthrop’s comprehensive Child Life Program, through which specially trained Child Life Specialists help children understand and cope with the stress of hospitalization. The caring and highly trained staff use therapeutic play, arts and crafts, entertainment and other diversions, to ensure that the hospital experience is as stress-free as possible for children and their families. Child Life Specialists are available in Winthrop’s Pediatric Emergency Unit, the Cancer Center for Kids, the Pediatric Specialty Center and the Hospital’s Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center.
