LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Phelps Memorial Hospital Center’s 28th Annual Champagne Ball will be at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6 at Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Briarcliff Manor.
The evening’s honoree will be Emil Nigro, MD, of Larchmont, director of emergency medicine.
TD Bank also will be honored for its commitment to affordable housing, financial literacy and education and the environment through the TD Charitable Foundation.
A unique aspect of the event is the Fund-A-Cause auction, where guests pledge their support to a designated hospital program or service with the goal of completely funding the initiative by the end of the evening.
This year, the auction will fund the Phelps emergency department, where Nigro began working as a physician 38 years ago. He became director of the Department of Emergency Medicine in 1984. A pioneer in emergency medical services programs, Nigro helped initiate the practice of providing life-saving interventions for patients prior to their arrival at the emergency department. He also was instrumental in developing the Hoch Center for Emergency Education, where approximately 3,000 first responders receive training every year. In 2008, Nigro led the planning and design of Phelps’ new state-of-the-art emergency department.
“In the course of 38 years, Dr. Nigro’s contribution to Phelps and emergency medicine has been immeasurable,” said Daniel Blum, Phelps President and CEO. “Honoring him at the Champagne Ball gives us all an opportunity to recognize the tremendous impact he has had in establishing the emergency department at Phelps as one of the finest in the region.”
The TD Charitable Foundation’s mission is to serve individuals, families and businesses in the communities where TD Bank operate. It has made more than $135.8 million in charitable donations since its inception in 2002.
The event will include a cocktail reception, dinner and dancing and a silent auction featuring gift certificates, cocktail packages and jewelry.
