2018 Founders Ball

What a fabulous night! Thanks to the generous support of more than 850 of our dearest friends and supporters, The Brooklyn Hospital Foundation's 2018 Founders Ball event raised nearly $1.5 million. Proceeds from the evening will enable critical upgrades that will help to modernize and enhance patient comfort in our Pediatrics, Labor and Delivery and Emergency Departments in the coming year.

The evening recognized the achievements of honorees: Nelson S. Menezes, MD; Earl D. Weiner; David Schwartz; and Drs. Srinivas Kesanakurthy and Samin K. Sharma of The Brooklyn Hospital Center-Mount Sinai Heart Comprehensive Cardiac Care Program.

The celebration was capped off by the very first, but certainly not the last, Casino. Guests rolled, raised and bluffed their way to the top winners circle to take home one-of-a-kind prizes like tickets to see Elton John, Keith Urban and the NY Islanders courtesy of our friends at the Barclays Center.
