Although golf was the pastime of the day, it was the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at Winthrop that brought friends and benefactors together on June 20, 2011 to raise vital funds for pediatric patients and their families at the Seventh Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing, held at the Hamlet Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge, NY.
Thanks to the hard work and ongoing support of event founder and co-chairman Michael C. Stroud, president of Atlas Investigations, Inc., (pictured above, center) and event co-chairs Rosemary Cinquemani, partner in the law firm of Furey, Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, P.C. (right) and Frank Catelli, partner in the law firm of Furey, Furey, Leverage, Manzione, Williams & Darlington, P.C., (left) the 2011 Golf Outing soared to new heights – raising nearly $55,000 and bringing the group’s total fundraising to more than $300,000 in support of vital pediatric cancer services at Winthrop.

The CCFK provides patients and their families with a host of psychosocial support services free of charge. Services include individual and group counseling; music and play therapy; horticultural therapy; academic support and assistance with school re-entry and even a long-term effects follow-up program. Support for these vital services comes from private donations by groups and individuals whose generosity benefits pediatric cancer patients and their families.
“It means a great deal to us to be able to help these children,” said Mr. Stroud.
