NYU Winthrop Announces 15th Annual Cancer Center For Kids Golf Outing

CCFK Golf Outing Event Chairs, Rosemary Cinquemani of Garden City and Michael Stroud of Franklin Square, welcome community members at the 14th Annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing.

The event will benefit children with cancer and blood disorders and their families
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, treating the disease is only part of the battle. There are also a host of psychological, social and educational concerns for the child and their family. At the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at NYU Winthrop Hospital, psychosocial support services that include a Child Life program, music therapy and counseling services are provided to patients and their families free of charge—even though most of these services are not reimbursed by health insurance. Instead, support comes from donations made by various benefactors.

To boost that support, Franklin Square resident Michael C. Stroud, President and founder of Atlas Investigations, Inc., joined forces with his business associate, Garden City resident Rosemary Cinquemani, partner in the law firm of Kerley, Walsh, Matera & Cinquemani, PC, and organized the first annual CCFK Golf Outing in 2005. Since that time, their collective efforts, together with support from colleagues, friends of the CCFK and other members of the community, have raised more than $650,000 for CCFK’s support services.

The 15th annual Cancer Center for Kids Golf Outing will take place on Monday, June 17, starting at noon at the prestigious Wind Watch Golf and Country Club in Hauppauge. The afternoon of golf will be followed by a dinner and reception, featuring food and community auction prizes.

“The physicians and staff at NYU Winthrop’s CCFK provide invaluable services, care and compassion for our young patients and their families,” said Cinquemani. “We are proud to be part of the 15th annual CCFK Golf Outing.”

As the largest outpatient facility treating children with cancer and blood disorders in Nassau County, the Cancer Center for Kids at NYU Winthrop is at the forefront of treatment and research, and is a collaborative member of the prestigious Children’s Oncology Group.

The co-chairs are seeking sponsors, golfers and supporters. Sponsorships, reservations and donations of any amount may be made online at www.nyuwinthrop.org/events; click on 2019 CCFK Golf Outing.
