More than 200 guests turned out to help raise more than $525,000 at the Cohen Children’s Circle annual Golf Classic. The funds raised at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success and Deepdale Golf Club in Manhasset will support the Pediatric Surgical Operating Complex, child life, pediatric research and clinical care programs at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

The event honored David Schiffer, cofounder and CEO of RevBits (Reverse Engineering Bits), a technology company focused on cyber security solutions, with the Gary M. Sherman Humanitarian Award, which recognizes community leaders that help raise awareness, engagement and funds for Cohen Children’s.

Among those participating in the day’s events were Richard Gershman, Cohen Children’s Circle Golf Chair; Gary Morris, Cohen Children’s Circle Committee Chair; along with members of Cohen Children’s Medical Center Advisory Board, Cohen Children’s Circle Committee and Cohen Children’s Medical Center administrative staff.

“More than 8,000 children are operated on by Cohen Children’s surgeons each year, and the demand for specialty pediatric surgical procedures is growing—by more than 27 percent over the last five years,” said Schleien. “Our new Pediatric Surgical Operating Complex will be specifically designed and equipped for each state-of-the-art surgery to meet the unique needs our children have. These patients are our heroes and the reason I love going to work every day.”

The dinner program featured Gershman serving as master of ceremonies; Michael Epstein, chair of Northwell Health’s Board of Trustees; Charles Schleien, MD, executive director of Cohen Children’s Medical Center and Lanzkowsky Chair of Pediatrics at Northwell Health; and Schiffer. Highlights of the evening included silent and live auctions, golf awards and a sports raffle.
