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

In the true spirit of the holiday season, friends and supporters of Winthrop-University Hospital recently gathered for the annual Yuletide Ball, an elegant evening that featured a traditional Holiday sit-down dinner and dancing to benefit the Hospital�s Child Life Program. The 2013 Yuletide Ball, graciously hosted by Ali and Rich Volpe in their beautiful home on December 7, 2013, was a remarkable success, raising over $160,000.

�We are grateful for the opportunity to host this year�s event to help raise funds for such a fundamental program at Winthrop,� said Mrs. Volpe, who, along with her husband Rich, also served as Co-Chairs of the 2013 Yuletide Ball Committee. �It was a wonderful evening that garnered great support from the Garden City community, for which we are very thankful.�

Over the years, Winthrop�s Yuletide Ball has raised more than 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.
