More than $3.3 million was raised at Northwell Health’s Constellation Gala recently held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The signature event celebrated philanthropic support as the driving force of innovative collaborations throughout Northwell Health – particularly its Manhattan care locations – that are transforming health care throughout the country.
Proceeds from the Constellation Gala will provide Manhattan communities with greater access to high-quality care by helping to advance services and programs at Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and Lenox Health Greenwich Village.
“Our Manhattan locations have a rich history of health care excellence and innovation,” said Michael J. Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “As we look forward, the extraordinary support of our donors will help us to fuel continued advances and expansion to better serve people in Manhattan and in communities across our region.”
Grammy Award nominee Sara Bareilles highlighted the evening’s program, performing to over 500 attendees.
The Constellation Gala Dinner Committee’s dynamic roster comprises a number of New York City leaders whose specialties span across the fields of medicine, publishing/media, philanthropy and the arts, and includes Ellen Crown, the committee’s chair. The generous support of Donald Zucker & Barbara Hrbek Zucker helped make this evening possible.
