On Monday, December 12th, St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children raised $860,000 to support New York’s most critically ill and injured children at their annual Tribute Dinner. The funds raised will support essential programs and services for New York’s most critically ill and injured children.
This event honored Hunter Roberts Construction Group with Brian Aronne, Senior Vice President Operations Manager and Theresa Herrmann, Project Executive. The Co-Chairs of the event are Jeffrey E. Levine of Douglaston Development Levine Builders and Vincent L. Riso of Briarwood Organization. Other attendees included top executives from the construction, financial services, and real estate industries, along with other business leaders and philanthropists who have shown dedication to supporting children with special needs and advancing pediatric healthcare.
“We are thrilled to finally be able to welcome our community back to celebrate this special evening in person,” said Dr. Edwin Simpser, President and CEO of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children. “We are grateful to Hunter Roberts Construction Group for their philanthropic support and ongoing dedication to ensuring St. Mary’s can continue to provide the highest level of care to New York’s children.”
As the only center for pediatric long-term and rehabilitative care in New York City, St. Mary’s has served New York’s children for more than 150 years. St. Mary’s provides a continuum of care to children with medically complex conditions through an in-patient hospital facility in Bayside Queens, as well as home care services and community programs. More than 90 percent of patients at St. Mary’s require a level of care that exceeds what their families can afford and what Medicaid is able to cover. The funds raised from philanthropic events are vital in helping St. Mary’s change the lives of children and their families.
