Angels on the Bay Makes a Significant Donation to St. Mary’s Respiratory Program

Bayside, NY – On behalf of Angels on the Bay, George Russo (second from right) presented a check for $70,000 to St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children on October 10, 2006 at their annual benefit ball at Russo’s on the Bay. This gift is part of a generous $150,000 pledge in support of the Masimo Respiratory Monitoring System. This technology allows St. Mary’s to monitor a child’s pulse and blood oxygen levels at all times in any location within the hospital and eliminate extraneous noise and undue stress in the process. (l-r) Rose Madden Baer, Vice President of Community Programs; Molly Honigsfeld, Director of Individual Giving; and Peggy Donohue, Vice President of Community Programs, accepted the check.
