Northwell Health and the Americana Manhasset raised a record total of more than $1.1 million for women’s health at the 25th Annual Katz Institute for Women’s Health Luncheon and Fashion Show featuring the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2017 Collection. Two former patients took the runway at Old Westbury Gardens and shared their personal stories as they walked alongside the physicians who impacted their lives. Supermodel Carol Alt, also a patient of the Katz Institute, surprised guests in attendance and walked the runway to thank her doctors for the care she has received.

Iris and Saul Katz, longtime supporters of Northwell Health and partners in the creation of the Katz Institute for Women’s Health and the Katz women’s hospitals, were celebrated as the event’s honorees. Presented by the Partners Council for Women’s Health, co-anchor of Fox 5’s Good Day New York, Rosanna Scotto emceed the event, which supports the unique and complex health care needs of women.

To date, the Katz Institute Luncheon and Fashion show has raised more than $9.3 million in support of women’s health. Money raised at this year’s event will support areas including new technology in the treatment of breast cancer, women with disabilities and reconstructive surgery using 3D bioprinting.
