Kids Were #1 at Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night
More than 450 friends of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone enjoyed oversize games and lively competition at the third annual Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night—all for a special cause. Supporters raised nearly $1.5 million to benefit children’s care, including programs through the Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care.
This year’s Playing for Pediatrics Winter Game Night honored Frank Cecchin, MD, Andrall E. Pearson Professor of Pediatric Cardiology and director of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology, and Sujata Chakravarti, MD, director of the Congenital Cardiovascular Care Unit. Gus Rosendale, co-anchor of NBC 4 New York’s Weekend Today in New York, emceed the event, energizing the crowd throughout the games and silent auction. The program also included a video welcome from TODAY Show’s Hoda Kotb, who noted that she is a “proud supporter of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital.”
For the seventh 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 families and friends 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. “This extraordinary community continues to make a significant impact on the work we do to provide the very best care for children.”
