St. Mary’s Hospital for Children Annual Autumn Festival

On October 6th, families came together at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children for their annual Fall Festival, bringing fun and festive spirit to some of New York’s sickest kids. The festival raised over $13K in funds to support vital programs and services at St. Mary’s, the only provider of pediatric long-term and rehabilitative care. St. Mary’s Fall Festival featured family-friendly activities including pumpkin painting, Zumba, carnival games, face painting, arts and crafts and raffles. Local performers also came by to share their talents, including performers from the Landrum School of Performing Arts and a special visit from Mr. Met. This year’s event honored Community Leader, Melissa Coppola.

“We’re so pleased so many kids and families were able to join us for our Fall Festival,” said Dr. Eddie Simpser, President and CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital for Children. “Getting to celebrate the season at this festive event helped lift the spirits of our kids, and it was a great way to bring together our neighbors from the local community. The proceeds from this day will help support the innovative pediatric healthcare programs happening at St. Mary’s.”

The annual St. Mary’s Fall Festival was made possible through the generosity of our sponsors and partners: Agardi Team – Exit Realty One, Peter F. McEnaney Jr. – Prudential, and Assemblyman Edward C. Braunstein.
