Supporters Raise a Mount Sinai South Nassau Golf Outing Record of More Than $800K

Mount Sinai South Nassau’s 40th Annual Golf Outing held recently established a new funds raised record for the event, raising a gross of more than $800,000.

The record-setting funds raised will benefit Mount Sinai South Nassau’s ongoing expansion and mission to meet the healthcare needs of the South Shore of Nassau County as well as its cancer patients, with a portion of the funds supporting the hospital’s no-cost “Cold Cap” program to help patients prevent hair loss during chemotherapy and free transportation service for low-income patients to cancer care-related medical appointments at the hospital’s Gertrude and Louis Feil Cancer Center.

Jeffrey H. Greenfield, a prominent Long Island business leader, longtime supporter of Mount Sinai South Nassau, Vice Chair of the Nassau County Planning Commission, and member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department, was the honoree of the outing, which was held at three of Long Island’s most prestigious and challenging venues: The Seawane Club, Hewlett Harbor; Rockway Hunting Club, Lawrence; and Rockville Links Club, Rockville Centre. Approximately 400 golfers and guests flocked to the popular outing, which is the largest and most successful hospital golf outing on Long Island.

The post-outing Honoree ceremony & barbeque held at the Seawane Club included the presentation of the hospital’s Community Service Award to former New York City Fire Department (FDNY) Commissioner Tom Von Essen, of Rockville Centre, in honor of his service as a first responder and leader of the FDNY, including during the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001.

The hub of Mount Sinai South Nassau’s cancer program, the Gertrude & Louis Feil Cancer Center, located in Valley Stream (NY), is one of the premier cancer centers in the New York metropolitan area. Treating approximately 1,500 patients annually, Mount Sinai South Nassau’s cancer program has received the prestigious American College of Surgeons (ACS) Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award on three consecutive occasions since 2009.
