Spring Event

Supporters of Blythedale Children's Hospital helped raised more than $650,000 for the Hospital at its 6th Annual Spring Event, held April 16, 2013 at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, acclaimed heart surgeon and host of the popular The Dr. Oz Show served as Master of Ceremonies at the elegant event, attended by more than 350 Blythedale supporters. Attendees also heard from 16-year-old Nicole Graham, a former Blythedale patient who spent two-and-a-half months at the Hospital, recovering from two strokes suffered during her battle against leukemia.

This year Blythedale honored some important members of its community – longtime Trustee Jon Burnham and his wife Mimi, along with The Dreyfus Corporation. The Burnhams have been a part of the Blythedale family for more than 40 years. The Dreyfus Corporation, and its President, Charlie Cardona, are long-time supporters of Blythedale, particularly as lead sponsors of its annual golf outing. The commitment and generosity of this year’s honorees, over many years, has helped to sustain and improve the essential services Blythedale provides to its patients and their families.

All funds raised from A Celebration of Blythedale Children’s Hospital will be applied to Phase 2 of the Hospital's extensive building campaign, which includes a renovation of the Day Hospital and Early Childhood Center (scheduled for completion later this year).
