Yuletide Ball Raises Over $160,000 for Winthrop's Child Life Program

Each year during the December holiday season, friends and supporters of Winthrop-University Hospital gather for the Yuletide Ball, an elegant evening of dining, dancing and fundraising to benefit the Hospital's Child Life Program. The 2010 Yuletide Ball, graciously hosted by Garden City residents John and Liz Durand on December 11, 2010 was a great success, raising over $160,000.

The Yuletide Ball is a pivotal annual event that garners the community's support for Winthrop's unique Child Life Program, through which specially trained Child Life Specialists help children understand and cope with 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 the Pediatric Emergency Unit, the Cancer Center for Kids, the Pediatric Specialty Center and the Hospital's Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center.

A vital program that serves the full spectrum of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services at Winthrop, Child Life is supported in its entirety by philan thropic contributions.
