06-10-2014 - The Brooklyn Hospital Center Gala to benefit emergency department renovation, pediatric care
Brooklyn, NY The Brooklyn Hospital Center will dedicate a portion of the proceeds from its foundation's annual gala to the renovation of the hospital's emergency department. Renovation plans include doubling the current size of the ED, expanding pediatric services and improving patient care areas.
NY1 anchor and Williamsburg resident Pat Kiernan will host a live session of the hospital's "Good Deeds" game - a Monopoly-style contest complete with options to "purchase" local real estate and brand monuments on a dance floor-sized game board. Each guest will leave the June 10 gala at the Marriot at Brooklyn Bridge with a boxed game set ready to play at home.
"The future of the borough and our ability to keep Brooklyn healthy are contingent upon the quality of Brooklyn's healthcare and infrastructure," said Dr. Richard Becker, The Brooklyn Hospital Center's president and CEO, in announcing this year's honorees. "Mr. Mosler and Dr. Leblanc exemplify this synergy and we are proud to honor their accomplishments in volunteerism, philanthropy and service to the community."
"We are an award-winning hospital dedicated to the health of Brooklyn and its neighborhoods," said Dr. Becker. "The support we are receiving for this event will go right back into serving Brooklyn residents with quality healthcare services. We look forward to Pat Kiernan helping make this a truly one-of-a-kind philanthropic event that will have a direct impact on the health of Brooklyn families who rely on our comprehensive primary and specialty care services."
Ofer Cohen, founder and president of TerraCRG, will serve as event chair. Honorary chairs include Robert B. Catell, chairman, Advanced Energy Center at SUNY Stony Brook, former chairman and CEO of Keyspan, and former chairman, National Grid USA; and Brett Yormark, CEO of the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center. Founders Ball chairs include Dino Veronese of Fiduciary Trust Company International; Bernard Drayton of Last Minute Entertainment; and Maria Florini Ramirez of MFR Inc.
