Yuletide Ball Raises Over $200,000 for Winthrop�s Child Life Program

In the spirit of giving, friends and supporters of Winthrop-University Hospital gathered for the Yuletide Ball, an elegant evening that featured a traditional Christmas sit-down dinner and dancing to benefit the Hospital�s Child Life Program. The 2012 Yuletide Ball, graciously hosted by Liz and Jim Golden in their beautiful Garden City home on December 8, 2012, was a remarkable success, raising over $200,000.

�We are so grateful for the generosity shown by the community to support Winthrop�s Child Life Program,� said Mrs. Golden, who along with her husband, Jim, also served as Co-Chairs of the 2012 Yuletide Ball Committee.

�It was an honor to be a part of it.�

Over the years, Winthrop�s Yuletide Ball has raised over two million dollars in support of the Hospital�s Child Life Program, which is dedicated to helping children understand and cope with the hospital experience. Certified Child Life Specialists utilize 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. A vital program across the full spectrum of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services at Winthrop, Child Life is supported in its entirety by philanthropic contributions.

�The Annual Yuletide Ball provides essential funding for the Pediatric Child Life Program,� said Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of Pediatrics at Winthrop.

�Funds raised from this event are vital to the continued success of the program.�

We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of our sponsors
