Supporters of Blythedale Children's Hospital helped raise $600,000 for the Hospital's Research Program at its 7th Annual Spring Event, held last week at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.
Scott Shannon, host of WCBS-FM radio show "Scott Shannon in the Morning" served as Master of Ceremonies at the elegant event, attended by 300 Blythedale supporters. Attendees also heard from 17-year-old Cara MacDonald, a former Blythedale patient who spent two months at the Hospital recovering from multiple serious injuries (including a traumatic brain injury) sustained after being hit by a car while crossing the street.
This year, Blythedale honored some important members of its community - Honorary Blythedale Board Member and former President Bob Stone and his wife, Nancy, for their decades-long commitment to Blythedale, and Lend Lease (the Hospital's construction management firm), along with its President, Ralph Esposito, for leading the construction of our new inpatient hospital, Speech and Audiology Center, and Day Hospital. 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 support the Hospital's Research Program. For more information on Blythedale's research initiatives, please click here. The Hospital raised more than $23,000 during the event through its Wish List. Please click here
