Kids Were #1 at Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night
Grown-ups got in on the fun at the second annual Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night. More than 500 friends of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone enjoyed oversize games and lively competition—all for a special cause. Altogether, supporters raised $1.2 million to benefit children’s care hospital-wide, including innovative programming through the Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care.
This year’s Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night honored iHeartMedia and 106.7 LITE FM, the nation’s most popular audio company and radio station, for their partnership in broadcasting the first ever LITE FM’s Hope for the Holidays Radiothon in December. Emcees Bob Bronson and Christine Nagy, hosts of LITE FM’s The Bob and Christine Morning Show, kept the energy high throughout the games and silent auction. The program also included a video welcome from the TODAY Show’s Hoda Kotb, who noted that she is “proud to be part of this important cause.”
For the sixth consecutive year, Citi served as the presenting sponsor of the children’s hospital’s premier event. Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night was hosted by the Hassenfeld Committee and KiDS of NYU Langone. “We are truly grateful for the extraordinary community of friends and families who support Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital,” said Catherine S. Manno, MD, the Pat and John Rosenwald Professor of Pediatrics and chair of the Department of Pediatrics. “Their commitment to supporting children and families has been, and continues to be, invaluable.”
