Mount Sinai South Nassau's annual golf outing raises over $800,000


Mount Sinai South Nassau raised more than $800,000 during its 40th Annual Golf Outing — setting a new fundraising record for the event. 

The funds raised will benefit Mount Sinai South Nassau’s ongoing expansion, its mission to meet the healthcare needs of patients living on the South Shore of Nassau County, and its cancer patients, with a portion of the funds earmarked to support the hospital’s no-cost “Cold Cap” program to help patients prevent hair loss during chemotherapy and provide 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 chairman of the Nassau County Planning Commission, and a member of the Rockville Centre Fire Department, was recognized this year as the honoree of the outing, which was held at three of Long Island’s most prestigious and challenging venues — The Seawane Club in Hewlett Harbor, the Rockaway Hunting Club in Lawrence and the Rockville Links Club in Rockville Centre.  

Nearly 400 golfers and guests flocked to the popular outing, which is the largest and most successful hospital golf outing on Long Island.

Following an 18-hole round of golf, Greenfield was honored by the hospital during its post-outing ceremony and barbeque at the Seawane Club. The ceremony also included a presentation of the hospital’s Community Service Award to former FDNY Commissioner Tom Von Essen of Rockville Centre, in honor of his service as a first responder and leader of the New York City Fire Department, 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, 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’ Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award on three consecutive occasions since 2009.
