Rose Garden Rededication

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Long Island Transplant Recipients International Organization (LITRIO) today announced that the annual rededication of the Eisenhower Park Rose Garden will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 12 to 2:30 p.m. at the Eisenhower Park Rose Garden located near parking fields 6 and 6A. The ceremony recognizes and honors organ donors and donor families.

This year’s Rose Garden Ceremony will be very special as we honor our heroes: the living donors and donor families who gave so generously and who provided the Gift of Life for transplant recipients. They are lifesaving heroes who have shared life and will remain eternally in the memories of those who have been fortunate to receive transplants.

In 2015, more than 1800 terminally ill patients were fortunate to receive an organ in the State of New York and can now thank Long Island and New York donor families for creating their brighter tomorrow. Among the speakers at this moving ceremony will be donor families and organ and tissue recipients as well as elected officials and healthcare professionals active in the fields of organ donation and transplants.

LI TRIO maintains the Rose Garden as part of their participation in Nassau County’s Adopt-a- Park Program in recognition and celebration of life giving organ donations. LI TRIO is the local chapter of Transplant Recipients International Organization, which is an all-volunteer non-profit international organization committed to improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through support, advocacy, education, and awareness. For more information contact Dave Rodgers at or 516-620-5900.
